Coach: A-League has too many foreigners

MELBOURNE, Australia - Australia’s top-flight soccer competition has too many foreign players and their prevalence is hurting the national team, according to title-winning coach Graham Arnold.

Arnold, who guided the Central Coast Mariners to their maiden A-League championship last week, said he had prioritized using local players rather than imports in his side and suggested rival teams did the same.

“I think all other clubs need to follow suit because it’s damaging the national team,” Arnold said yesterday.
