There are teams that do not fichan foreign. Yes, but, How many are there and who are? For worldwide, there are only three senior clubs fichan not they are outsiders and Athletic Bilbao, Chivas of Mexico, the National Ecuador. Until recently either Deportivo Saprissa of Costa Rica did. Four unique sets with many particularities, with a particular policy signings but not by them it has made them less athletic or social level. Quite the contrary, often it has served as a stimulus to compete with great ocean liners of world football and especially, to be recognized worldwide for the effort to contribute to help train local players.
The most famous case is possibly the Athletic Bilbao, team that thrives on Basque players (both Spanish and French Basque Country), navarros or have formed footballing quarry in Lezama. One idea that has led them to be one of the three sets has never descended to the Second Division and has enabled them to earn up 23 Cups and 8 Suspenders.
But nevertheless, not everything was so long. At the beginning of the century, the bilbaino box consisted of vizcaínos English players and players who resided at least six months in the city. Peculiarity has caused much has been only one French Basque (Lizarazu) and a player color (Jonás Ramalho) along the more than 100 years of history, where yet, if foreign coaches have allowed.
If Athletic is the most famous club for such a policy, Chivas does not go far behind. The Mexican side was founded in 1906 by a Belgian shopkeeper called Edgar Everaert and despite having players in their early Gauls soon decided that would be the basis of the Tricolor selection and therefore only nourish Aztec players, not when it involves technical. And it does not seem to go wrong. It is the only club to have played next to Américaen all leagues since the beginning and is the most successful club in Mexico.
Not bad things are going to Club Deportivo El Nacional of Ecuador, the team of the Ecuadorian Armed Forces and the only sign players only Ecuadorian. With 13 leagues under his belt, is the club with more national titles and the first Ecuadorian to reach a final of Recopa Sudamericana. His quarry have emerged as important players Christian Benitez, Felix Borja, Jorge Guagua and Luis Antonio Valencia. We're talking about it, of historical.
As is the historical Deportivo Saprissa, the most successful club of Costa Rica 28 local titles, which adopted this policy in 2003 and held for nine years following its bankruptcy and then be acquired by Mexican businessman Jorge Vergara, Chivas of Mexico and the US team of the same name owner. The only man to win six consecutive league, owes its name to Saprissa, Salvadoran who was curiously of Catalan origin, something that certainly clashes with the team this decade has already made an appearance in the Mundialito Club.
Better foreign fichando?
One of the big questions is better to hire foreign? Possibly, on the market today reinforcements sign outside handle raises the level, but instead of club culture it is lost. And surely, none of the followers of these four teams would be happy if the directives allow henceforth have foreign.
