Glenn Hoddle Topics
I run an academy in Spain for young footballers who are released by their clubs and who, in my opinion, deserve a second chance. It is a rewarding job for me, but one that also reveals many of the faults in the English game.

I'm hurt inside, that's where the pressure comes. It's very hurtful to see that we're not getting the results we can achieve and I know that we can achieve.
I have been here before as a spirit - this is just my physical body, it is just an overcoat. And at death, you will take the overcoat off.
I have a number of alternatives, and each one gives me something different.
At this moment in time I did not say them things.
