In recent years there has been a distinct lack of English talent leaving our shores to try their hand in foreign leagues. Whilst it is true that many English players do play abroad, 195 to be exact if you exclude British clubs, they are not exactly of the highest quality, and gone are the days when Steve McManaman and David Beckham donned the white shirt of Real Madrid.
Following Gareth Bale’s move to Madrid in the summer, it got a lot of people wondering why more English players don’t play abroad (I realise that Bale is Welsh but his football upbringing has very much been in England).
The amount of rumours over the years of English players moving to foreign clubs could be counted on one hand, with Chelsea’s Frank Lampard linked with Inter Milan, then coached by Jose Mourinho the one that immediately springs to mind. »
