Uk Gives China £3M To Develop Football!

Recommended Posts

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3246295/Osborne-slammed-tragically-daft-waste-money-handing-3million-China-teach-play-FOOTBALL.html

  • The Chancellor is in China for a week-long trip to promote economic ties
  • Mr Osborne announced UK funding to train 5,000 coaches in the country
  • He claimed the cash would increase Chinese awareness of English football
  • But MPs said the cash was desperately needed for grassroots UK football

Don't ever say this country wastes money.....

It's been nearly 50 years since England won the world cup. Does anyone see the irony here?!

Football aside, the Chinese have invested quite a lot into London property. Why on Earth are we giving them £3m for anything?

Football isn't the game, it is the industry. The £3m will aim to get a small fraction interested in football, of which a fraction will support UK megaclubs. The thing about China is that a small fraction * a fraction of the population is a large number. I'd have thought that that £3m will bring much more into UK GDP through PPV, football strips, etc. If you think in only terms of GDP it is a sensible investment.

But it is nothing to do with football the game. And it won't actually benefit you.

They will all be buying football shirts made in er China. This is a bribe, nothing more.
