Juan Agudelo: Still hoping for English move

Juan Agudelo: Still hoping for English move

The American international forward was denied a work-permit to play in England late last year, after he agreed a move from New England Revolution.

The 21-year-old has since been loaned to Dutch side FC Utrecht, while Stoke will continue their pursuit of a permit for the Colombian-born striker.

"It was just hard to give up on a dream that I had as a kid," he said about his move to England not going through.

"Maybe something could have worked out with Major League Soccer, but for the most part I wanted to try and come over here.

"It was a little bit difficult, but everything is a process."

He hopes he can prove himself in Holland, and told MLSsoccer.com: "(United States striker) Jozy (Altidore) said I will get my chances here, he said I just have to keep myself close to my goal and work hard.

"I want to work on the runs that I make, creating more chances by getting on the end of things. And tactically, becoming more mentally aware."

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
