Brilliant find and well done BBC for demonstrating globalisation so beautifully for us.  Took me ages to compile a list of African born players for our Into Africa unit in the spring term.  Will update to 2009-10 now!

Grateful thanks.

Have a look at this map :

JP Collicard 's map tries to study the relationship between football, demography and economy in Western Europe. He had in mind what is called "la dorsale européenne" - european metropolis

OK, updated table of African born players at:
http://www.slideshare.net/suewestoby/african-players-in-english-premier-league-teams

I used it this year by asking pupils to complete a choropleth map of distribution of countries of origin - my way of getting pupils to use atlases to learn locations of some African countries and to consider possible reasons for variations.  Lesson got favourable feedback from year 8s.

Hope this helps someone (and my first effort at uploading work to Slideshare; will try to do this more often this year).

Map the Managers origin in each league you choose.
More insights and dont forget our National sides...
