  1. Does that mean that guardado is no longer a mexican citizen since he is now going to become a spanish citizen? Or is he just becoming a legal resident of spain and still maintaining his mexican citizenship.

    1. I’m not sure about the specifics about retaining citizenship, but being a Spanish citizen frees up a space in the Valencia squad for a non-EU player. Teams are only allowed a certain number of foreign players, so this would make Guardado a not foreign player under the laws.

      Either way, he’s bound to the Mexican NT for life under FIFA laws.

      1. I thought if you played for a country in an official FIFA game , that was it, no changing after that. BUT I was reading this , and not I’m confused , anyone care to share their thoughts on this ?

    2. He won’t lose Mexican citizenship, especially since he was born there. You can hold more than one passport. Vela also holds a passport for Spain.

  2. Manny- The whole citizenship thing just means that he can play in Spain and not be considered a foreigner. He can’t switch to a different country because he’s been capped already with Mexico. The becoming a Spanish citizen thing is separate from FIFA. I just brought it up to say that it didn’t really matter that he had more than one passport, as Bryan pointed out.
