The announcement of the creation of the Premier League moved Europe and football fans around the world. The famous British presenter James Corden Who has hosted his Late Night TV show on CBS for years, has tried to explain the news to an American audience, where football is not very popular.

They are not commercial franchises,” those who accompanied him at CBS studio and his viewers explained, remarkably. What happens in Europe about how professional sports is organized in the United States.
“Football is a working class sport where anyone can beat anyoneBefore he recalled how little Leicester City won the Premier League a few years ago, Corden said.
