I dont know a club in the world that deals more seriously with data science than Ajax

Despite the fact that Erik ten Hag had to get used to the large amount of data available at Ajax, the practice master is positive about it. The fifty year old trainer uses the data as an important tool at Ajax.
โ€œThere is an incredible amount of data available,โ€ says Ten Hag in conversation with the Financieele Dagblad. โ€œAbout training and competitions, of ourselves and our opponents. I had to see what I could do with it at first. You need to be able to establish a relationship with the four components: attacks, defending, and the moments when you switch to attack or defense.โ€
Vincent van Renesse, working for football data agency ScisPorts, claims that Ajax is even among the absolute world top in terms of data use. โ€œAt Manchester City, the department may be slightly larger,โ€ says Van Renesse. โ€œBut I dont know any other club in the world that deals more seriously with data science than Ajax.โ€
