The fifth Annual Review of the European Football Players' Labour Market is packed with essential information for anybody involved in the world of football: heads of federations, managers of leagues and clubs, agents, journalists and, of course, amateurs of the game.
The Professional Football Players Observatory closely observes the changes occurring in the logics of composition of squads in the big-5 European leagues, putting them into context with results obtained by clubs. For the first time, our report presents the statistics for individual players' performances through synthetic indicators strongly correlated to results, which allows us to identify the best footballers by league.
While the analysis of football will never be an exact science, this publication is the best means of obtaining an objective overall vision of the quatifiable realities on the pitch.
