(FILES) Belgian soccer player Jean-Marc

Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG: (FILES) Belgian soccer player Jean-Marc Bosman, flanked by two of his lawyers Luc Misson (R) and Jean-Louis Dupont (L), smiles as the European Court of Justice rules 15 December 1995 that the transfer system of players between football clubs was illegal. The ruling of the European Court of Justice in December 1995 upheld the case brought by Jean-Marc Bosman against the European football authorities as a result of his failed transfer from a Belgian to a French club in 1990. The repercussions spread quickly through western European football as the European Union demanded that regulations concerning players' transfers and limitations on foreign players be amended almost immediately.AFP PHOTO BELGA FILES (Photo credit should read STF/AFP via Getty Images)
