The way in which football has moved and the way that young players of today are is a hot topic amongst football fans.

A lot is made of how in the game at present, young players on professional contracts are already raking in substantial salaries before they've actually made a name for themselves.

Often players think they have arrived far too quickly and that's something that grinds the gears of Watford skipper Troy Deeney.

The 28-year old, who is said to have left school without any GCSEs, scratched and clawed and worked incredibly hard to the point where he became a Premier League footballer in 2015 with his beloved Watford.

And Deeney talks a lot of sense when talking about young players of today, noting that footballers of today are placing too much focus on getting nice cars and showing off on their social media channels, and adding that he dislikes the way the game is going

Do you think Deeney hits the nail on the head on a wider problem in football today?

Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
