Premier League clubs are killing English football with foreign imports: Gary Neville

London: Gary Neville, former Manchester United and England footballer is of the view that the top Premier League clubs are killing English football with too many foreign imports.

According to the Mirror, the England coach reckons Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal should promote young stars like Michael Keane, James Wilson and Tyler Blackett - rather than raid the transfer market for continental stars.

He said twenty five years ago, Liverpool had Irish and Scottish players while United had Scottish players, Irish players, Welsh players, adding all the top four, five and six teams did - but now there`s none in the top six.

Neville said that there are a few English players, but they`re dwindling fast.

He also expressed disappointment at the team`s World Cup performance this summer, saying they should have done better.
