Newcastle legend Beardsley questions amount of foreigners in Premiership

Newcastle United legend Peter Beardsley says there's too many foreigners in the Premiership.

Franz Beckenbauer slammed England's "kick and rush" tactics during the 1-1 draw against the USA and blamed a lack of resources.

And former England playmaker Beardsley admits it is difficult to argue with the German legend's comments. Beardsley, 49, said: "When you look at the way we played you would say he has got a point.

"I have no problem with the top players being here - such as Fernando Torres and Didier Drogba.

"But the average ones clogging up the system are causing the problem.

"It's because the prices are better abroad."
