Sports letter: Foreign flair

Sir: I have just looked at your Premiership Team of the Week (Sport, Monday 27 April) and it makes fascinating reading.

The defence is Made in Britain, including David Seaman, Gary Neville, Rio Ferdinand, Tony Adams and Nigel Winterburn, but the midfield and attack, with the exception of Kevin Campbell (who is newly returned from Turkey) comprises the Best of the Rest: Dietmar Hamann, Eyal Berkovic, Patrick Vieira, Harry Kewell and Nwankwo Kanu.

There, in one team, a reflection of the Premiership (Manchester United excepted), with the stout British defenders doing and dying in the rearguard and the skilful, creative foreigners providing imagination and flair.

And David Ginola wins the PFA Player of the Year Award just to prove the point.
