Why can’t the United States develop a male soccer star? | Football | The Guardian

Seems like a lot of time in this article was spent on the issue of compensation for youth clubs as a way to address the pay to play system which can reduce the number of talented youngsters available outside those in MLS academies. That’s understandable but ultimately the major factor is a cohesive plan for youth development with high schools, youth clubs and  MLS Academies all partaking. Yes, the solidarity and training fees may help youth club’s expand opportunities for youngsters who otherwise couldn’t afford it and try to improve their operations and quality. It would help but it wouldn’t necessarily amount to a drastic improvement in the amount of talent produced in different levels of US Soccer.
