Only around 20% of the talented players in the 1st and 2nd DFB-Bundesliga youth squads make the jump to a professional football squad. It is crucial to identify which promotional program in which club best matches the individual player. The active career of a professional football player generally lasts 10 years. Therefore, it is important to start thinking at the beginning of the playing career about what will follow on afterwards and which alternatives could suit one best. Injuries and sickness could also shorten the career. All these aspects have to be thoroughly considered. For a sportive performance on the field and to be able to give one’s very best, one needs a strong partner on one’s side.
