28 april 2016 – PSV heeft de pas 16-jarige Joël Piroe alvast een aanbieding gedaan. De groeibriljant uit de eigen jeugd kan zijn handtekening zetten onder een driejarig contract, maar er liggen buitenlandse kapers op de loer. Dat meldt Voetbal International. This kind of things is fast making it impossible and loss making for Dutch clubs to have an academy and in the end could mean the end of the Netherlands as a football powerhouse. So what could we do against it. I have a radical solution to the problem, that also could attract Anerican kids with talent. The solution is to severe the Academies from the clubs in a judicial way, by making them independent Ltd/BV entities as football academies with all shares in the hands of the club that originally had the academy. All academies should also form a non-KNVB league to play a youth competition. This way FIFA rules on the under 18 players are no longer an issue. Kids that have the talent to grow into a professional player will have only one route towards pro football, via those academies. To enter their parents have to sign a contract that the costs of the education is 5 million euro. This will be called in if the student doesnot sign, when offered, a contract with the parent club. If they refuse to do so, the kid will be out of the club and into the normal amateur clubs. Their choice. This way the EPL free riders now have to pay the kids "study loan" of 5 millions to be able to attrack them. The independent nature of the academies makes it possible to attrack young USA kids, as this is an education with no attachement with the FIFA and thus no commitment to their rules. Many parents in the USA pay ridiculous amounts of money for their kids to play football at in our eyes questionable levels of coaching. Sums go even in the region of 25000 dollars. If you are willing to splash that kind of money, you better spend it on quality. What keeps them from doing so is the FIFA ban. That problem is swept aside by my way of organizing it. When an American kid has enormous potential as a 11 year old, but is going to be processed in the lacking Yank academies and the parents havenot got the money to pay, there are big sponsors willing to cough up the money for potential billboard highlights. So my set up safe guards the future of our academies and our way of football and can also be a source of income from students abroad. We have the reputation of being the best in youth development and should now make it profitable. What do you think of it and fell free to elaborate, adjust or torpedo it.
