3. A bit of a guess . Most of the premiership managers were very ordinary players . Ronald Koeman , Slavan Bilic and Mark Hughes are exceptions . I'll go for Mark Hughes .

Well if the previous guesses of Italy or the Netherlands are not correct, I'm going to try for a lesser footballing nation. In the early days there were a number of Scandinavian players so I'm going to try Sweden or Norway.

I can think of at least :

15 Dutch strikers/wingers who have played in the Prem
7 midfielders
7 defenders
3 keepers

So I'm sticking with Holland

We of course had the world beater William Kosrten at Leeds :roll:
