Martinez wants loan system change
- From the section Football
Everton manager Roberto Martinez calls for a change to the Premier League rule that sees loaned players ineligible for matches against their parent club.
Midfielder Gareth Barry will miss Saturday's game against Manchester City under this rule and the Spaniard feels he "should be allowed to play".
Uefa allowed Chelsea loanee goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to play for Atletico Madrid against the Blues in the Champions League, and Martinez calls for one policy to be applied across the European game.
