I wanted to play with Athletic Club Bilbao,and tried to sign players but i was told i can only sign Basque players,anyone know what that means?
From Athletic Bilbao's wikipedia page: "Athletic official policy is signing professional players native to the greater Basque Country, including Biscay, Guipúzcoa, Álava and Navarre (in Spain); and Labourd, Soule and Lower Navarre (in France). Still, in recent times, this policy has been somewhat relaxed and players with direct Basque ancestry or with no Basque ancestry but formed in Basque clubs have played for the team."

So no Brazilian wonderkids.
Thanks man but that sucks,theres not a lot of good spanish young players and not enough cash to spend,i check the nationality of their players and all Athletic's players are spanish!
This is a pain in the ass but so realistic,,, i only found this out about athletic last weekend and it makes me respect them so much more,, promoting young players from their own country and still qualifying for europe in one of the top league.... HERE HERE!!

You are reading "Basque!!!!!!!!!!".
