The club have two rich backers who have invested a lot of money in over the years. All the players work full-time for the club now, when previously they had footballers who played only on match days.

Well, Piries is clearly quite happy to come back to England and play here. He clearly wouldn't make it at the top level so might be happy to be at Crawley for one season and help get them promotion.
Either way, it's good publicity for both player and club.

Eh? Mark, I think you mean they had part-time players who played on match days but who had day jobs so didn't train at the club during midweek mornings and had training sessions somewhere in evenings.
