The role of the football observer
The role of the football observer is of primary importance within the football economy. This is the figure responsible for finding profiles of interesting players for their own goals and discovering new talents. Football scouting has always been an activity operating in football but over the years there has been a profound evolution of the role. Personological attitudes (critical ability, attention to details, sensitivity) and techniques (knowledge and competence on football) have been gradually joined by new skills, such as IT, relational skills and in some cases linguistic skills.
The goals of the football observer change according to the context in which he operates and the figures he works for, usually clubs or agents. You can work on youth, amateur and clearly professional football. Especially in today’s globalized football there are potentially many opportunities for collaboration and increasingly open paths towards scouting. Nowadays, in almost all countries and competitions it is possible to find talent thanks to the average improvement of the world level of football. Combined with this, the possibilities tocreate a network with professionals also abroad have increased. The technical assessments of the player are therefore also combined with a knowledge of the context in which he is observed, and preferably a deep-rooted network of contacts that can support one’s observation work. For this reason we mentioned the new skills of the scout, because if well exploited the potential of the role is even more favorable than in the past.
