Lech Poznań Academy
director of the Lech Poznań Academy
It is a leading Polish football academy that graduates talented and professional players every year. Among them there are such famous names as Marcin Kamiński, Tomasz Kędziora, Karol Linetty, Jakub Moder and Tymoteusz Puchacz.
All of the Lech students are distinguished by good physical preparation. “We analyze both the basic stats, such as the distance covered, as well as more advanced, such as training accumulation and effort of the player. We try to refer to the players from all around the world, different clubs and the data we have. This gives us a reference point, so we know if we are in a good place or not” – says Marcin Wróbel, director of the Lech Poznań Academy. “From the hundreds of data that GPS provides, you need to extract the ones that will allow the player to go to the higher level. In the past, of course, we used to train without GPS and were also able to achieve good results. But the world of football is changing, today you have to look for small advantages and use new technologies, take into account as many factors as possible and predict its components. All of it helps to control the whole process”.
