Frick believes this would help the advancement of the players and at the same time take some of the "heat" off Soccer star Gyula Juhasz summarized the financial woes of the one-time "state amateurs" from Hungary. "Why, I'd make less here in England being £ pro than I used to earn in Hungary as an amateur," said Juhasz after a workout with Britain's Tottenham Hotspurs, a leading soccer team.
