Roberto Rodriguez in Milan. The five-gang at Gladbach. Manuel Akanji in Dortmund. Granit Xhaka at Arsenal. Or Renato Steffen at Wolfsburg. Only a selection of Swiss national team players, the famous club in one of the five Top leagues to play.

But where you have got actually your skills for the performances on the big stage? The Ball-professors from the football Observatory CIES, based in neuchâtel, wanted to know it exactly.

they examined the Five-year period between 1. January 2014 and 1. January 2019 and analyzed for all players in the big leagues, which clubs have provided the education. As a training club, where a player has played between the ages of 15 and 21 years of age at least three years. 1370 clubs from all over the world have trained players who have appeared in the Top leagues.

International lead Barça and Real

The conclusion: The Spanish tower over all. From the famous Barcelona-forging the new generation of La Masia 69 players who stir things starting in January 2014 for 55 various clubs. Barça’s rival in Real terms brings it to 69 players spread over 44 clubs.

The best of the Swiss club? Zurich brought out with 14 players and most of the big. But the CIES-scientists evaluate the effective use of time is higher. Therefore, Basel creates it as the best of the Swiss club to Position 59, because 13 former FCB juniors 70 rolled in 883 minutes. The FCZ sinds 48 770 minutes.

Also GC and St. Gallen are yet to master YB. The first under-class representative, Winterthur leagues with an impressive six former FCW juniors in the Top.
