Future star hack
Only a handful of teams can afford to point at any player in the world and sign him immediately. Most clubs have to start at the second, third or fourth stage, or even at the very beginning of the players' football journey. How would you like to own the future stars of world football before anyone else notices them? With the analytical approach of 11Hacks, you can reveal the next big stars.
Thanks to our method, we can identify players who dominate their competitions at an early age and show high potential for the future.
This is already the case for young Liberian international Oscar Dorley, one of the 11Hacks' analytical scouting products. At the age of 19, he moved from the Lithuanian side FK Trakai to traditional Czech club FC Slovan Liberec and in his second season there, he established himself as an indispensable member of the starting line-up.
After that, he moved to the top Czech club SK Slavia Prague for €1 million (5 times the original investment), and his value has climbed to €3.5 million, according to Transfermarkt.com.
The initial investment in similar players does not have to be large, often even zero. In the 20/21 season, we brought the young Nigerian striker Fortune Bassey to České Budějovice for free. After a season spent on loan in the Czech second division, he became a regular starter in the first half of the 21/22 season and scored 9 goals. His performances attracted the attention of Ferencváros Budapest, and Budějovice sold him for a reported €1.5 million.
Ladislav Almási, who we recommended to Baník Ostrava before the 21/22 season, is another successful transfer of a central forward. The 22-year-old immediately became an indispensable member of the squad, finished the season with 16 goals and 3 assists, and his value increased by several X's. There have been rumours he will join the top Czech club very soon.
Mathematical models can reveal if someone has outgrown the competition even before the scouts do. If they don't follow the league regularly, which is often not possible, exciting players can slip through their fingers. You can find some of these players in almost every league, and with data scouting, it is easier to find them and buy them before everyone else.
