From grass roots, to greener pastures.
That’s the path a world renowned English football coach sees young Caribbean footballers taking in large numbers within the next six years.
According to Chelsea Football Club head honcho David Monk, the days of the Caribbean producing just a few professional footballers who could sneak into the English Premier League, La Liga or Major League Soccer were close to an end.
Chelsea’s senior international football development officer was the man who chose the pick of the crop of the next generation of footballers from the region as part of the Digicel Chelsea Football Academy, which will be in Barbados this week.
He expects them to be taking their talent overseas in a big way very soon.
