Why are England's PL teams filled with Spanish, Dutch and French players ?
It is everything to do with asking why, for example, do Dutch youngsters demonstrate skills their UK counterparts simply do not consider to be essential, standard equipment for a professional footballer ?
The first question is simple; money.
It's no wonder players like George Boateng and Mario Melchiot have played so long in the EPL, they could never earn that kind of money over here.
As for the second statement, the Wiel Coerver training methods have something to do wit it.
Something which I have posted on in the past.
Nobody was interested, which gives to think...
Man Uted now have a coach, Rene Meulenstein (I think his name is) who's job it is to bring these methods across, and they are purely on a technical level.
