SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: SPANISH FOOTBALL EXPORTING PLAYERS MORE THAN EVER

SPANISH FOOTBALL EXPORTING PLAYERS MORE THAN EVER

SPANISH FOOTBALL a decade ago was more about importing players. Over time & with the grand success of the 2008 EURO Championship title & the recent FIFA World Cup victory, Spanish Football is now exporting Spanish born players.

Spanish paper "ABC" has illustrated this with this interesting diagram which shows the country & which Spanish player/s is/are participating this season in their local Football competition. It´s in Spanish, but you can figure it out easily without much interpretation needs. Greece looks like the country with most Spanish players, following by England, Italy, Turkey etc. This trend looks likely to continue & increase as Spaniards overcome their cultural "shyness" to continue with their carreers overseas, apart from their increased Sporting attraction & International exposure which increase their value.

One observation, there maybe a correlation with Spanish Football recent success ( Euro 2008 & World Cup 2010) & with the increase of overseas players, eg Xabi Alonso, Arbeloa & Torres (Liverpool FC), Dani Guiza ( Turkey) ..etc. recent pioneers.
