Matias Almeyda highlights one problem holding MLS clubs back

San Jose Earthquakes manager Matias Almeyda has hit out at the MLS regulations regarding signing young players to the senior team.

Unlike most other leagues around the world, Major League Soccer plays through the Fifa international breaks. In the past, this wasn’t a problem as only a handful of imports still played for their national teams and a selection of American and Canadian players left during the window.

Now, as the league has improved, the effect on MLS squads is much larger. During the most recent international break, more than 80 players left the leauge to play for their respective nations.

The Quakes weren’t hit too hard this time around, with only Marcos Lopez of Peru missing for the entire window, while Jackson Yueill was called into the USMNT late on after the dismissal of Weston McKennie.

San Jose travel to FC Dallas this weekend but will likely do so without Yueill and Lopez, while Matt Bersano is doubtful with a knee injury and Eric Remedi is suspended, leaving Almeyda’s squad stretched thin.
