Beckenbauer – gets award,backs 6+5 rule

German soccer legend Franz Beckenbauer received the Golden Victoria Award from the German publishers association for his work as President of the 2006 World Cup Organising Committee. It was presented to him by German Chancellor Angela Merkel at a ceremony in Berlin .
Beckenbauer has spoken in favour of FIFA’s proposals for a restriction on foreigners in club football and believes forcing teams to field six homegrown players would get rid of foreign mercenaries.
“A lot of players have the mercenary mentality. If it does not work with one club then they go to the next one.I do not know how long clubs will allow that sort of attitude.”
“Too many players of different nationalities, who can hardly understand one another, can lead to a team falling apart if there is not a strong core of homegrown players,” Beckenbauer said.
So..inspite of whatever Wenger might think he has called for a minimum of at least 6 german players in each Bundelsliga team for a start.
