Yesterday in the Champions League Ajax Amsterdam once again proved by beating Borussia Dortmund 4: 0 that their training and scouting system is definitely one of the best in the world!
The club from Amsterdam sells its best players every year, replacing them with players bought from weaker clubs for little money and young players from the academy.
How is it that despite the annual sale of players from the club, the team is not weakened or even strengthened?
Do they pay attention to this club's scouts when they choose a player?
What aspects do the coaches working with these players pay attention to?
Ajax's sports director revealed these secrets and if you train according to his instructions, you have a chance to develop just like the Ajax players, and when you show up for the tests and show your skills, there is a good chance that you will be selected!
Today, this article will answer the question that many players ask themselves:
WHICH ASPECTS TO PAY ATTENTION DURING TRAINING TO DEVELOP?
WHAT IS SCOUT LOOKING AT AND WHAT IS KEY FOR HIM WHEN SELECTING A PLAYER?
Every coach in the academy, in the reserve team or in the first team when asked what is decisive in assessing the player's potential, they always answer the same way that what the player shows during the GAME is the most important.
How much influence does his game have on the final results, can he fulfill the tasks assigned to him by the coach, etc.
This seemingly simple sentence gives so many clues.
Well remember that ultimately the most important thing is not how well you train without pressure, it is what you show the world on match day that counts.
That is why mental development is so important, self-confidence and the fact that even the simplest exercise has to get you used to the time pressure and the opponent, just like in a match, then it will be fine.
Therefore, if you pass the tests in the club at a high level, you must be prepared for the test in this form.
Many games on the reduced pitch are time-limited in each exercise, allowing you to evaluate not only your technique and ball control, but also your decision-making speed.
When searching for and then testing players, scouts not only from Ajax but from many clubs in the Netherlands pay attention mainly to these aspects:
3. Physical Preparation
4. Mental skills
1. Pass the ball - short, medium, long
2. Shot on goal - from a standing ball, from leading the ball and after a cross
3. Leading the ball - speed and change of direction
4. Dribbling - leading the ball in the full speed and How fast are you dribbling
5. Accepting the ball - forward, sideways, backwards, upper ball
All this in-depth analysis when searching for a player and training in this way leads to the fact that Ajax without spending a lot of money can achieve very good sports results and earn many millions of euros every year on transfers.
If you train patiently every day and are able to focus on the above-mentioned aspects and apply them in your training, I am convinced that you will achieve a lot.
The most important thing is what you present on the pitch at the moments that are crucial for you, i.e. during tests, in a match, etc.
Even when using the trainings that we place on the portal for you, do not forget about the appropriate intensity and increasing the level of difficulty for yourself so that the pressure is not a problem for you.
Remember that even the most accurate tips will help you only when you apply them in your training.
You will not enter the Ajax player level just by reading our articles and contacting us.
You have to start applying it and be patient!
Think about it, then write in the comments. What are you currently missing to play at a professional level?
In addition, write in which club you are currently playing and how many times a week you train.
Please do not write that you are short of money because that is definitely not the reason you are an amateur at the moment.
