Will Sevilla pull out of Super Cup against Barcelona?
The Spanish football federation (RFEF) said on Saturday that there would be no restrictions on players from outside the EU for the Super Cup, despite only three being allowed in squads for league matches.
"Sevilla FC is surprised by the RFEF's announcement 24 hours before the Super Cup," Sevilla said in a statement.
"The club's legal department is studying the matter and should FC Barcelona submit a team with more than three non-EU players, it would present a possible ground for the filing of a complaint on account of an improper line-up."
Philippe Coutinho has reportedly acquired a Portuguese passport through his wife in the last week, while his fellow South Americans Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are already EU citizens.
Sevilla qualified for the match as last season's Copa del Rey runners-up after Barcelona won the league and cup double. (
