Liverpool's Spanish Connection is Greater Than Barcelona

How many times have you heard the argument that there are too many foreigners playing in England and that it’s ruining the future of the sport in that country? Interestingly, the issue isn’t confined to England. Spain faces a similar problem. Read this quote from Marca, the Spanish daily sports newspaper, to learn how.

“No matter that Barcelona is the only Spanish club left in the Champions League. Considering the predictable formation that Rijkaard will select at Camp Nou against Manchester, Liverpool played more Spanish players on the field than even Barcelona will do in their homeland. Four Spaniards lined up for Rafa Benitez against Chelsea compared with three that will presumably be chosen by Rijkaard” — Ramiro Aldunate, Marca newspaper.
