PlayStation - Killer des englischen Fußballs?

Playstation culture is killing the English game, insists Hammers hero
West Ham hero Robert Green wants to consign Playstations to the dustbin in a bid to save English football, the Daily Mail reports.
And Green, who saved Jermain Defoe's injury-time penalty to ensure a 1-1 draw with Tottenham at Upton Park yesterday, also believes Jose Mourinho should be the next England coach. Hammers keeper Green has been overlooked by England despite helping the injury-ridden side to Premier League mid-table safety with three penalty saves so far.
And he told the London Evening Standard: "For England, it should be the right man for the job. A Swede gave me my debut so I'm not one to say it must be an Englishman.
"I wouldn't look further than Jose Mourinho. He has the character and know-how to deal with the job as well as the passion."
Green added that society has to change right now if England is to rise in the world rankings again.
He insisted: "We would have the best team if we could go into every household and throw away every Playstation, XBox and video game.
"We have the players and the best League in the world. The way the game is played here, is so different though.
"Watching the Premier League is like Formula One - it's that quick - and then you go to an international game and it's like a game of chess.
"Other countries seem to bring on world-class players, countries like Argentina and Brazil where often it's football or nothing.
"It's contrast we live in a country where we have choices and perhaps the will to do it, the need to escape your own situation, is not so clear."
