Advocate General Lenz's Opinion, published in parallel to the court's decision, proved to be a far-reaching work. In it, he highlighted the case's profound impact on the future of sports. He addressed the need to take both sporting and economic considerations into account – from fans to players and clubs. Arguing beyond the freedom-of-movement principle, it inferred how more proportionate solutions could be built.
Today, the Regulation on the Status and Transfer of Players (RSTP) governs employment. FIFPRO, and its member unions, continuously contribute to these regulations and the extensions and interpretations at the domestic level. This is to ensure a progressive development that influences the world of work for players.
