limiting squad size
ROME --- Italy s once-proud national team has been
eliminated from the last two World Cups in the first
Former European champions such as AC Milan and
Inter Milan didn t even qualify to compete in this sea-
son s Champions League.
And the days of Serie A landing top foreigners like
Diego Maradona, Marco van Basten and Zinedine
Zidane are long gone.
So it s of little surprise that the Italian football fed-
eration is planning to vote today on proposed reforms
to shake up the national game.
The changes would require Serie A clubs to limit
their first squads to 25 players, and stipulate that at
least four come up through their youth systems.
A rule could also be passed to require that one of
the maximum of two non-EU players in each club has
a certain pedigree with his national squad.
The idea is to give the national coach more options
and promote homegrown players.
But Italian Players Association president Damiano
Tommasi believes the proposals are too radical.
Eckert, Garcia to meet
amid Fifa probe crisis
GENEVA --- The judge and prosecutor behind Fifa s
World Cup bid corruption investigation will meet
today in an effort to repair their relations and restore
the reputation of a case seemingly in disarray.
The whereabouts of the meeting between Fifa ethics
judge Joachim Eckert and prosecutor Michael Garcia
is a secret --- as are, against the American lawyer s
wishes, his investigation findings.
Eckert sought face-to-face talks after Garcia appealed
to Fifa against the German judge s decision last Thursday
to close the probe of the 2018 and 2022 bidding contests
won by Russia and Qatar. The nine-candidate cam-
paigns were dogged by allegations of bribery, favour-
seeking and rule-breaking voting pacts.
Garcia claimed there were "numerous materially
incomplete and erroneous representations" of his work
in Eckert s 42-page summary judgment.
Messi's father downplays
hints of Barca exit
BARCELONA --- Lionel Messi s father, who acts as
the player s agent, has downplayed the stir his son
caused by hinting at an exit from Barcelona.
Jorge Messi tells Barcelona-based La Vanguardia
newspaper "the plan is to stay here, but since people
read between the lines they exaggerate."
He says "Leo is happy, but if one day the club says,
We have an offer for you, we want to sell you, well,
we would have to study it."
Lionel Messi said Tuesday that he would like to stay
at Barcelona but "sometimes not everything happens
the way you want."
The 27-year-old Messi, Barcelona s all-time leading
scorer, is under contract until 2018. (AP)
UEFA punishes three clubs
NYON --- UEFA has punished Galatasaray and
Borussia Dortmund for crowd disorder and sanc-
tioned BATE Borisov for racism by its fans at Cham-
pions League matches.
UEFA says its disciplinary panel fined Galatasaray
70,000 euros (US$87,700) for disturbances which
stopped play twice during a 4-1 loss at Dortmund this
month. The Turkish club s fans ran onto the pitch and
threw lit fireworks.
UEFA ordered Galatasaray to pay Dortmund for
damage repairs. It issued the same sanction after
Galatasaray s group match at Arsenal.
The German club was fined 32,000 euros
(US$40,000) for its fans part in the disorder.
UEFA also ordered BATE Borisov to close
a section of its stadium when it hosts Porto
BATE fans were found guilty of racist
behaviour during a 7-0 loss against visiting
Shakhtar Donetsk last month.
for hiring Mackay
LONDON --- Wigan was condemned by
English football s anti-discrimination
organisation for hiring Malky Mackay as
its manager yesterday while he is still under
investigation for offensive comments.
Since August, the English Football Asso-
ciation has been looking into a dossier from
Mackay s time as Cardiff manager, including
text messages he acknowledged were "com-
pletely unacceptable, inappropriate."
Details of exchanges with a colleague,
which the League Managers Association said
were "disrespectful of other cultures," were
leaked to the media as Mackay was on the
verge of being hired by Crystal Palace.
That job fell through, and the FA
announced it was investigating the Cardiff
dossier. Despite no outcome yet from the FA
investigation, Wigan handed Mackay a route
back into football, 11 months after being fired
Atletico defender Miranda
out with leg injury
MADRID --- Atletico Madrid says defend-
er Miranda has injured his left leg while
playing for Brazil in a 2-1 win over Austria
in a friendly.
The Spanish champions say medical
tests have revealed that Miranda injured
a muscle "in his left thigh" during Tues-
day s game.
The club says the centre back will need
"physical therapy and rest from play for
the next week, when he will begin spe-
