EFA is proud to launch a new section to the site to celebrate St George’s Day – Past EFA Profiles. It will be the home to reviews of former English footballer’s careers abroad. Going for the most high profile international that you will know played abroad but possibly not how they were perceived in that country to a player you might of never heard of but is still held in the highest regard by the fans of the club he played for.
For the launch, Past EFA Profiles opens with Chris Waddle – Olympique Marseille (1989-1992). This profile looks at the trend for English footballers to go abroad at that time, Marseille’s controversial European Cup exploits, how Waddle was one game away from the Ballon d’Or award and has Chris starring in an Albanian number 1 music video!
