Vinnie Jones has revealed that he disapproves liberal UK immigration rules
The Hollywood actor and former footballer Vinnie Jones have told in an interview that he disapproves the liberalized immigration rules in the UK. He said that he does not anymore recognize the UK as being the same place, as in his youth, because it is now a “European country” As a football player Jones was known for his aggressive style of play rather than his skills. He cultivated a “tough man” image which he later used in order to make a career in Hollywood.
He was sent off twelve times in his career and was once given a yellow card for violent play after only three seconds of a match. Despite being born in Wales, Jones considers himself an “English-type” footballer. He currently lives in California. In his interview with the BBC, he revealed that he does not have the intention to return back to the United Kingdom. He said ‘People say you can get bored of the sunshine in LA. No, you can’t. I play golf six days a week.’
In addition to that Jones said that he believes that football in the UK has been ruined by the influx of foreign players and foreign managers. According to him, many foreign players cheat often by “diving”, that is they fall down on the ground simulating that a foul play has occurred against them. Jones clearly has a nostalgia for the days when English football was populated by English players who tried manfully to stay on their feet while Jones and the other ‘hard men’ tried, sometimes successfully, to break their legs.
In the old days, the only reason why a player would fall down, is that he had been fouled, brutally by a player like Jones usually minding his own business far away from the ball
