Jack Gidney gives us some information about the process of identifying youth talent and placing them in a top level academy. We also touch on some items that are having a profound effect on young players here in the United States and also the day to day life of young footballer in Europe.
Jack is based in Southern California now after growing up in England. He took time out of his holiday to chat with me for an hour. He is very interactive on social media and would love to connect and answer more questions. Give the podcast listen and follow up with him or I on Twitter. Check out Jack's blog for a more in depth look inside the U.S. Youth National Team set up and other rants and raves.
