Imagine you are a Fenerbache player and just won the League and their is a championship parade with thousands and thousands of people and compare that with…celebrating Europa League qualification with your teammates. Because sure enough Everton is not going to have a parade for that? You would really prefer the latter? I’m trying to look through the eyes of a player here. Life is about experiences to. Playing in the Premier League he has done for 10 years now. There is nothing to gain for him at a mediocre English club. If Southgate needs that to convince himself of Wilshere’s qualities he is ignorant.
Opportunity being the key word. English teams outside the top six don’t even have the opportunity to play European football on the regular.
Turkey is a country of 80 million people. Why is that exposure important? What does is matter what John fucking Cross writes about him?
