Sensational news are out and it has been reported that German legend Oliver Kahn has slammed the quality of England’s goalkeepers.
Kahn, who made 86 appearances between the posts for Germany, believes Premier League clubs are failing to nurture home-grown talent.
Kahn said: “England has a great tradition of great goalkeepers in its football history with Peter Shilton, David Seaman and Gordon Banks.
“The question why no world-class goalkeepers have developed remains.
“Bayern Munich, for example, has a policy that Germany’s number one goalkeeper needs to be in their goal and I think in England we see a situation where many goalkeeping positions are filled with foreign goalkeepers, which makes it very difficult to develop an English goalkeeper.
“If we look at the various clubs – Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea – we see that the position is filled by a foreign goalkeeper.
“This makes it very difficult to develop an English goalkeeper that can develop into a number one world-class goalkeeper.”
