Feyenoord Sporting Director Leo Beenhakker is livid with Chelsea, Arsenal, United and English clubs in general after reports have appeared in recent days stating that Chelsea are about to grab on of their hottest youth properties Nathan Ake.

Nothing has been confirmed by Chelsea at all officially but it seems that a deal has been struck for Ake to sign professional terms at the club after turning 16 in February meaning that the Dutch club will receive a reported £228,000 compensation pay out.

Beenhakker said:
“What can you do? This is bad news for Feyenoord. English clubs are the great white sharks of football. Arsenal, Man United, Chelsea, they’re all in the game.

Premier League clubs spoil the market with their behaviour. Other clubs in Europe aren’t doing these kind of things, but the English sides just don’t care.”
In light of his comments I thought it's time for another debate on here.

The fact that he has named Chelsea, Arsenal and United stating that we are all in the game in no uncertain terms states to me anyway the ill feeling within Europe of the Premier League and the money that is involved in our game.

We have the best league in the world and if you are a youngster with a chance to come to England and join one of the biggest teams in Europe then why wouldn't you?.

We all know our clubs have Academy's and of course your club will look to get hold of the best youngsters to bring them through into the first team to save the club money at the end of the day.

As a supporter of English sides do you agree with the way we have our scouting systems set up?, The transfer policy of our clubs and the way in which we go about our business?.

Do you agree with Beenhakker?
