England’s U17’s World Cup winning team are really looking forward to playing their football outside the Premier League, which will largely be reserved for world superstars.
Winning England captain, Pete Thape (16) loves the business model of The Premier League, and is looking forward to watching it on the TV when he becomes a full time professional.
Thape, who is in the Chelsea youth team now, is hoping to eventually become a substitute in the Carabau Cup, before being released at 20 and joining Mansfield Town.
‘I’m just like any other fan, and really want multi-millionaires to join my club and stop my career flourishing,’ said Thape.
‘The money’s really helped our game, and the average football fan gets a lot of pleasure from knowing that people in China are watching The Premier League,’ added Thape.
