I remember reading Claudio Reyna turned down Barcelona to continue with his college career.

His twitter reads something w/ regards to having a big day coming up tomorrow (which is now today). Is he really ineligible to play for Borussia until he turns 18?


Probably...didn't Mueller have to wait to play for Bayern?

I thought it was an EU rule.

You mean like a labor law restriction rather than a UEFA/FIFA guideline?

Crazy, you'd think that we'd have the same thing here, but when you can sign a professional contract to play soccer as a 15-16 year old, it's apparent that we're not as strict.

If I am correct I believe it is a FIFA rule. Kids under the age of 18 can't play for a club team other than the nation of their birth or parents birth I believe. This was an issue when the Vancuvor Whitecaps selected Omar Salgado, they had to petition FIFA to let him play claiming that the MLS is unlike any other league in that they have teams in the US and Canada. FIFA allowed him to play fot them before he turned 18 due to the fact he was allowed to play in the US and Vancover was in a unordinary situation.

Flores can't compete in official competitive games for Borussia until he is 18. But, he can play in friendlies.

It's definitely either a UEFA or EU rule, because kids under 18 play all the time in Argentina. Aguero debuted when he was barely 15.
