Every Premier League clubs fails at bringing through young English talent, according to Arsene Wenger.

Wenger gave his view as part of the upcoming film No Hunger in Paradise. The film will examine the troubles and pressures that comes with trying to make it as a professional football player.

Premier League clubs have come in for criticism for ignoring the home-grown talent that is coming through the academy system. This is spite of the fact that England are have had unprecedented success in youth tournaments this year.

The u17 age group won the World Cup in India last month, the u20s won the World Cup in South Korea and the u19s won the European Championships.

Wenger believes that the education the players are receiving now is good, but clubs are failing to integrate players due to the pressures of the Premier League.

“I would say today, many, many, many clubs do well part one and part two – quality of education – there’s a lot work that has been done in England. We all fail in part three, integration into the first team,” he said, as reported by the Daily Mail.

“Nobody has found a miraculous solution because the Premier League has become so demanding that the gap between youth and reserve level and the Premier League is so big that all the managers sit there and sweat on the Friday night and finally think – lets be conservative, we’ll see next week.”

Arsenal have been introducing young English players to first-team football this season. Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Reiss Nelson and Joe Willock are all receiving regular minutes in the Carabao Cup and in the Europa League.

However, only Maitland-Niles has made an appearance in the league. Nelson and Willock are still waiting for their Premier League debuts. It’s a difficult balancing act for managers, who know that one period of bad form could cost them their job.
