• Former FA technical director proud of St George’s Park success
• Dual-nationality players must feel welcome, Ashworth says
Dan Ashworth has pointed to the establishment of St George’s Park as an elite hub for English football as his greatest legacy from his time as the Football Association’s technical director, with representatives of the German national setup having visited to learn from its success.
St George’s Park opened in 2012 and the £105m facility is home to England’s 28 national teams, who train on the 13 outdoor pitches or indoor 3G surface. Ashworth joined the following year and played a significant role in establishing the site outside Burton-on-Trent as the home of the FA’s national coach education programme, as well as a Fifa-recognised centre of medical excellence.
