Football: Bosman lawyer asks court to block Uefa overspending ban

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - A lawyer involved in the landmark Bosman ruling 18 years ago asked a court on Thursday to overturn a Uefa attempt to limit the spending of top European football clubs in a second challenge to its "break-even" rule.

European football's ruling body will bring in Financial Fair Play regulations next season to ensure clubs move towards break-even or face exclusion from continental competition.

Jean-Louis Dupont, representing Belgian player agent Daniel Striani, asked a Brussels court to examine the rule and believes it will have to seek the opinion of the European Court of Justice on the matter.
