New starts in Sweden

Recommended Posts

This is quite an interesting article about players from the EFL trying to re-start their careees in Sweden - some at vet remote locations. Looks like there’s a similar project being started up in Spain as well for the guys to try to get a break into a career they couldn’t make it here in the UK.

More English youngsters should definitely try heading overseas if they don't make it to start with here. Leagues abroad could suit there game better and they could make a decent career in places like Sweden whereas here there's a good chance they'll end up in non-league/out the game altogether.

Glenn Hoddle has run an Academy in Spain for many years - he takes in youngsters from all over Europe, who have been told they have no future in football, to give them the opportunity to showcase what they’ve got and prove themselves again. A notable recent graduate is Sam Clucas - rejected as a youngster by Leicester he went to Glenn’s Academy and has since played in the premier league for Hull City and Swansea City - and to complete the circle with delicious irony, his premier league debut was against Leicester! https://www.theguardian.com/football/2007/dec/19/newsstory.sport2
