Which Countries Do Premier League Footballers Come From? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Have you ever wondered where most of the footballers in your favorite Premier League club squad come from? In light of FA Chairman Greg Dyke’s proposals to encourage Premier League teams to launch B teams in a new League 3, that would be sandwiched in between League 2 and the Conference, the question of whether England is doing everything it can to produce as many quality footballers as possible has raised its head.

What’s your opinion? Do you think young homegrown English players are being overlooked by foreign players who are currently dominating the Premier League, which may or may not be having a negative impact on the national team?

  1. I used to think the best English players if they are were good enough they would get a chance. But when you look at Sturridge I start to think young English players are not getting a chance to develop because their is so much pressure in the BPL that coaches don’t risk playing young talent. Sturridge used to sit on the bench at Man City and Chelsea and now that he has been given a chance at Liverpool he is showing the talent he was predicted to be when young. You look at Ravel Morrison a young player who is the closest thing I have seen to an English Zidane and big Sam sends him to QPR in the division below because he didn’t want to risk playing him the Premier League.

    1. Both Sturridge and Morrison have/had attitude problems at their former clubs which is why it didn’t work out for them there. Rodgers has been able to change Sturridge’s attitude, even though he still sometimes reverts to being selfish, while Redknapp has helped Morrison somewhat. Certain players can only be handled by certain managers, as is the case with these two.
