British jobs for British workers?

The Guardian reports this morning that: The Premier League is in discussions with Downing Street over ways in which it can increase the number of home-grown players appearing regularly for England's leading clubs.

Unless this is genuinely what the Bottler had in mind in proclaiming 'British jobs for British workers', I am utterly baffled.

What do the workings of the Premier League have to do with Downing Street? Is the Bottler about to unveil a football master plan? Is he perhaps thinking of going in to football management after he has been turfed out of No. 10?

Can somebody explain?

The EU forbids any restriction on the movemnt of Labour in the EU and this wouod include an association like the Premier League.Interesting I hadn`t thought of that.

Italy used to have restrictions as well which had to be dropped

Good old EU
