To Matt Sadler football comes first

There aren’t many footballers who would like to swap the English Premier League for the Championship but Matt Sadler is not one of them. The former England youth captain is quoted by Vital Football as saying that his reasons to step down in the football pyramid was due to his desire to play more football. Sadler recently joined Watford from Birmingham City.

Sadler says:

Footballing-wise it was an easy decision because I need to play regular football, but in every other aspect of my life with my family and friends etc being here [City] it was obviously a lot more difficult.

Sadler is just 22 and has shown lots of promise and it is only a matter of time before he returns to the Premiership, Sadler might have been regular at left back for the Blues in past years but this season, he has featured in only 7 matches for Birmingham, the club that he supported as a boy. Now of course he is a Watford player and may he do well at Vicarage Road.
