Release bearing slop!

Im putting in my new Luk clutch kit in my 97 PSD with a zf5 and came across something that im not sure is normall. The new release bearing when put on the front bearing retainer(nose cone) of the transmission has some slop in it. Is this normall or is it supposed to be tight? Thanks.
