Sevilla threaten to quit Super Cup in row over Barcelona’s non-EU players
Sevilla say they could withdraw from Sunday’s Spanish Super Cup if opponents Barcelona name more than three non-European Union players for the match.
The Spanish football federation announced on Saturday there were no restrictions on non-EU players as it classed the game as “not professional”.
Only three non-EU players are allowed in each La Liga matchday squad.
It had been thought the Spanish Super Cup was the same but Sevilla said they would object to “an improper line-up”.
