The 'Secret Footballer' gives his first television interview to Channel 4


With his identity still kept anonymous, the 'Secret Footballer' has given his first television interview to Channel 4, with voice muffled and face obscured.

In the interview, the alleged Premier League player, who has written two books alongside his columns, tells Jon Snow that the football business is not doing enough to educate the young academy players at clubs. "We are removing their education essentially," he says.
