UK Footballers in Serie A: Coni Request


The FIGC will submit the Serie A club’s request to CONI: if approved, players from the United Kingdom will not be considered as non-EU citizens.

The issue of non-EU members in terms of registration represents the headache of many Serie A clubs. This is the case of Milan, which had to make choices based on the two slots available, or Lazio, which must decide how to use the second place after that occupied by ‘Taty’ Castellanos between Hudson-Odoi, Kamada and Zakharyan.

In the last few hours, Serie A has decided to make a formal request to Coni precisely on the issue of membership.

In today’s Federal Council, the clubs of the Italian top league agreed to ask that players from the United Kingdom be recognized as “EU”, thus equating them to those from the member states of the European Union.

“At the request of the Serie A League, the Federal Council, by virtue of the commercial cooperation agreements between the EU and Great Britain, has resolved to ask CONI to treat players from the United Kingdom as EU players, thus exempting them from the entrance fees,” reads the official press release.
In recent weeks, Milan have filled a box with the arrival of a Briton, the Englishman Ruben Loftus-Cheek, while among the names in the Serie A orbit and coming from the United Kingdom there is also Hudson-Odoi, target of Lazio and currently non-EU.

And who knows if in the event of the green light from Coni the negotiation may not be unlocked with the transfer of the player from Chelsea to the biancocelesti.
