Why is the end product of the player’s development for each football culture so different?

Before we can answer that question, it is crucial to understand the following:

„ We consider the correct understanding of the technique a fundamental observational issue, because only then can we realize the training of a branch of sport.” (János Páder (Playing Basketball 1981)

Because of the aforementioned, it is not a trivial issue what tecHnique we teach the players. It is not a trivial matter whether or not we teach style technique (ex. Brazil), functional technique (ex. Holland, Italy, England), or technical elements (ex. Germany).


Because, otherwise the results of instruction would have a different end result!

On the basis of teaching of techniques, what kind of players do we get as the „end product”?


  • football artists


Italy, England:

  • football technicians


  • football specialists

The aforementioned assessments apply to the average players, the footballing masses and not necessarily the national teams
