'EPL Spending Ruining English Football'

Germany coach Joachim Low believes the English national team is struggling because Premier League clubs insist on forking out big sums of money for overseas talent.

Martial Becomes Most Expensive Teenager In History

Low admits he doesn’t mind clubs in England spending their money in Germany as it goes back into the development of players, but he insists their transfer policies are hurting their football.

"Premier League clubs are now paying three times what they used to. But the good thing is that money is being ploughed back into the Bundesliga.

"That helps make the German national team stronger because, in the last few years, £100 million has been put back into youth development.

"That money has been used to make the standard of young players better.

"The English will have to face up to the fact their young players don’t get the minutes for their clubs.

"That is why the English national team hasn’t set the world alight."
