UEFA chief stresses importance of local lads

UEFA president Lennart Johansson has re-iterated his belief that it would be beneficial for the game if teams were packed with domestic players not imports.

Johansson made his comments in a crucial week for him personally as he faces a battle for his role with France legend Michel Platini.

The Swedish supremo wants eight home-grown players included in a team.

'I would like to see only three foreign players on the pitch,' he told Radio Five Live.

'But I cannot predict what will happen. Today we have to accept what is decided by the European Union.

'It is not something that will be decided overnight. It is a movement that the absolute majority must want to happen.'

Johansson is confident he will remain in power.

'I am building my manifesto on my track record over 17 years and adding to that my plans for the future, ' he said.

'It will be obvious to each and everyone there is a difference (between me and Platini) and it will be in my favour.'
