Internacional looking to reduce number of foreign player’s in the squad
Internacional will continue to try and reduce the number of foreign player’s in their squad, despite receiving no offers for the players during the close season.
The CBF rules state that only three non-Brazilian player’s can be included in the match day squad, and with Inter having five foreigners on their books, this means that each week two player’s will miss out.
Inter are looking to sell at least two of the five player’s - Pablo Guiñazú, Mario Bolatti, Andrés D'Alessandro, Jesús Dátolo or Diego Forlán – but will leave it up to new coach Dunga as to who stays and who goes.
“There is a statutory requirement, it is the rule of the game,” executive director Newton Drummond told Radio Guaiba.
“No use training, training and not playing. The players are frustrated. We will resolve it, but for now, there is no proposal. The five will work and Dunga will have to decide who plays and who is left.”
One of the problems in moving the player’s on, as director of football Cesar Luis Souto de Moura told Radio Bandeirantes, is the high salary that Inter pays.
“Inter practices a level of compensation above the other Brazilian clubs and not to mention the rest of South American. Meanwhile, we have to wait and live with the situation.”
