Blackburn Rovers signing Danny Murphy says English football needs a new approach to coaching.
Murphy, who captained Roy Hodgsonâ€™s Fulham side, blames the clubsâ€™ short-termism and self-interest, saying some donâ€™t care whether England succeed.
â€śIt starts from what you are taught as youngsters,â€ť he told the Independent. â€śYou need to change the whole philosophy of coaching in this country because a lot of clubs are trying to get a team on the pitch to win games, rather than look pretty and produce technically-gifted players.
â€śI imagine a lot of the clubs arenâ€™t overly bothered how England do. I imagine Spainâ€™s clubs and youth academies all play the right way and get used to having the ball more.
â€śOn the flipside, we are talking about the quality of the Premier League in terms of what it brings to the fans â€“ that intensity, passion, pace, end-to-end stuff. You donâ€™t get both.â€ť
