Default Demetrio Albertini slams high number of foreign players in Italy’s youth sides

Italian FA's vice-president unhappy with current state of Calcio

By Stefano Federici

With many still looking for answers following what was Italy’s worst ever showing at a World Cup just over a month ago, FIGC vice-president Demetrio Albertini has blasted the high number of foreign players present in the country's youth leagues.

“There are far too many foreign players plying their trade in Serie B, Lega Pro or the Primavera leagues,” Albertini declared to Repubblica.it.

“They form a stop cap over the growth of our own young players.

“The youth leagues aren’t enough anymore as a means for nurturing home grown talent.

“I think we need ‘B’ sides like in Spain for example. A Juventus or Inter B side could play in the Lega Pro and this would give the boys the chance to play against personnel with much more experience.

“We need to find the means to help the youngsters develop. Should they continue to play alongside those of the same age, the situation is bound to remain as it is.”

http://www.goal.com/en-gb/news/3265/...ign-players-in



After Watching The World Cup, And Merda Win The Treble Without A Single Italian Starter, I Believe For The National Team's Sake & The Growth Of Young Italian Players, Teams Should Have " B " sides. Keeping A System Like Baseball Minor Leagues, Calcio Would Stand A Better Chance Of Keeping Promising Talent & Giving Them A Better Chance Of First Team Play As Well. Instead Of Seeing Them Go To Other Leagues (i.e Federico Macheda... First One That Comes To Mind).

Would Anyone Care To Comment ? ?

He is partially right. I dont think the state of calcio is extremely bad. If i remember correctly our youth didnt do half bad in U-21 euros reaching SF and losing only to germany. But we have to give our young guns a lot more exposure.

Spain has the right system in place to develop its youth. And they are reaping the rewards. There is no doubt its one of the best youth systems in the world.

Does anyone know anything about the german model?

Dear Albertini,
instead of bashing our youth system, think again before overpaying an arrogant prick like Lippi to embarras the national team like he did this summer. If young Italian players are good enough they will go to the first team, whether there are foreign youngsters in the youth teams or not.

I want to see a better Albertini compiliation, there is not a proper one on the net as of yet, and he was a real good all round midfielder with a set of specialties.

You're just one season too late.

2003 was when he left Milan for the first time to Atletico Madrid.

Shame he couldn't retire here, IMO he deserved the same legend status as Maldini.

inb4 rage from Maldini's fan

I'm not disappointed, neither angry, but only moved because I'm saying goodbye to Ac Milan.

Deme..

I wasn't that sad when Kaka and Sheva left us, not even close

yeah, even tho i was quite sad (big upset involved too) when kaka and sheva leave milan, a player like billy, deme, paolo, has a whole different level of sadness to me. tbh i was blaming ancelotti of deme's leaving milan. but i guess i don't hate him since pirlo was a worthy successor of deme.

yep, under zac. leo did a good contribution for the scudetto. we were actually an underdog in that year. lazio was in superb performance with vieri. fio was also a strong contender with batistuta.

Wow... Grande Demetrio... Much more complete playmaker than Pirlo. I remember him pretty good. Was doing great with the already great midfield we had back then. His vision was just amazing. He definitely can say: "Xavi who?"
