Leaders In Football: Dyke: Foreign Players 'Undermine' The English Game
Published October 10, 2013
FINISHING SCHOOL: Dyke went on to say, “That right is now denied. The truth is that we have become a finishing school for the rest of the world at the expense of our own players. I made it clear that day that I believe this was my No. 1 priority, and I was deliberately narrowed and focused in my analysis.” In his speech, Dyke laid out the key principles that he believes the English game needs to stick to going forward to sustain its popularity at all levels, in the face of stiff challenges such as the popularity of alternative sports, increased bureaucracy, and reduced Local Authority funding. These include maintaining the “universality of the game” so that there are strong links between all levels of the game, whether it is a game at Stamford Bridge, the home of Chelsea, or playing in the park; that the top end of the game should support grassroots football; and to cherish the national and int'l game.
