Inter fighting for human rights
As a political scientist, or atleast someone on its way to become one, I can tell you that rules of the UEFA and in did SerieA regarding registration of foreign players are to the certan extent rasist, certanly nazi and against basic human rights.
Limiting number of non EU players teams can own or buy during the course of the season certanly is against all basic human rights because. Sure, people are not born equal. Some are tall and some are small. Some are talented and some are not. But they should all be born with same rights. And at this point of time football atorities in UEFA and in did SeriaA denie number of people the right to be equal.
Why was Adriano not registered for Champions league? Sure, big part of it is because he was out of form. But the final call was made because he was NON ITALIAN. And with UEFA limiting number of non Italian players, Adriano was not registerd in favour of someone who will never have prominent football carear but just happends to be privilaged enough to be born Italian. So by being born elcewere, Adriano did not have equal rights.
Its preaty much the same with SeriaA limiting number of non EU players team can sighn during the course of the season. Again, certan players are being privilaged for being citizens of EU member countryes. And with EU being political institution (and not a democratic one) rejecting aplications from number of differnt countryes to joing the Union, that political institution, based on political agenda is influencing Inter transfer policy. And once again, number of preople are being denied its basic human rights. Equality.
So what has really changed since 1908 when Inter was formed because it was forbiden for non Italian players to play for Milan? Not much. Some non Italians are being alowed to play, but that number is being strictly monitored and our greqat club was unable to sighn number of great players, we dont even know of, because they were not from the EU countryes.
Being the most open club in the world, truly dont caring if a player was Italian or Argentinian or Chinese, Inter is being effected by this policy the most. In the free world, club should be able to declare it self international and open for players of all nationalityes. Unfortenaly, in the world we live in, clubs are not able to do so. In the world we live in, Adriano will not be registered for Champions league simpley because he is not Italian.
Inter is not just the football club. Its an idea. Idea of the better world. World where people are truly going to be equal and not judged by colour of their skin, their ethnicity or nationality.

Being italian has nothing to do with it, though.
Home grown players are defined as people who came through your youth system. Look at Barcelona with Messi, Dos Santos, Marquez? etc. They are all 'home grown' players despite being (at some point anyway) non-EU citizens just because they came through the youth systems there.
I do agree though, for the main part, but at the same time it's not quite like that.... I mean look in the US, the allowance for foreigners to work there is.. low, to say the least... And that's not illegal, thats just border control
Every country will always try to push for its own people. You cannot blame that...Similarly EU is trying to do something for Europeans..although I do not quite agree with it, but not too wrong. Players can always play in their Copa Libertadores or whatever if they want to. They may again have some restrictions in favour of South Americans..if not then they will surely have if the influx of other players gets too much
I know its not directly coneted.

Besides, the limit in non-EU players alowed to register is just as bad and unjust rule.
Just like AC Milan wanted to push for its own people (Italians) when it forbid foriners to play which led to the creation of Inter.

And being by a definician undemocratic (and by its own admition) EU does not have the right who can join such a unition and who can not, in that way deciding which players can be freely transfered and which ones can not.
I am preaty sure that non european countryes dont have such restrictions because (unlike european officials) they do not think that citizens of those perticular continents are more worthy by place of their birth than aweryone elce.
