Gino Dekker Scouting Report

Player scouting report from a game of Gino Dekker (in the bottom of the article), playing with Young Ajax against Young Seville (UEFA Youth League). A brief introduction about this player to understand better the scout report file.

Gino Dekker is a young talent (18 years old) from Football Club Ajax. He is the clear prototype from Ajax academy, player with amazing technique, good  dribbling, and a refined passing technique combined with a good vision to read the game. Moreover of this, Dekker possesses a good acceleration with  great crossing technique, making him a different player and dangerous in the flank being difficult to know what he will do. He needs to improve his strength (Although it is something normal for his age), his physical condition (lower performance in second halfs), and his play in defending period.

His natural position is attacking midfielder left, however he can play as left midfielder. Surely we will watch him soon playing with Ajax in the Eredivisie, and probably in an European top team because he has the potential to be a Top player in Europe.

Gino Dekker(Explanation of Scout Summary:A=Potential to be starter, B=Potential player of the team, C=Need more scouting, and D=No potential to be a player of the team.       An example to understand this better, the scouter works for Montpelier and he thinks X player is an A, but one week after this scouter starts to work for PSG, that A in his data base would change for a B or even a D because the level of the team is higher.)

(Explanation of the player abilities chart: The player ability chart is made with excel with a scale from 0 to 25 with the abilities that I think they have influence in a determine facet of the game. As for example, Aerial game is an combination between heading,jumping,balance, and strength. X player has heading=10 jumping=6, balance=12, and strength=16. His aerial game would be a combination of all this number with a result of 11, being reflected in the chart. I think it is easier to see how is the game of a player with a chart that with numbers.)
