The Bosman ruling

Postby Adam » Mon Mar 20, 2006 8:22 pm

Can someone just explain to me what this actually does?


My understanding is that when a player's contract expires, they are allowed to join another club without any compensation being due to the club they were at before they're contract expired.


My confusion arises from the fact that I can't understand what the hell went on before. Surely if a player is out of contract, he no longer has any obligations to the club who didn't renew his contract. So, what the hell?

I think that the club was entitled to a % of the player's selling value when he signed for a new club, like you would sell him normally nowadays, instead of leaving the club and joining a new one without either the old club receiving any money for it nor the new club paying the old club anything.

That's a load of bollocks. If a player is out of contract, he has nothing to do with the old club any more. Bosman ftw.

That's just a theory, I have no clue.
