Ajax FC :Everyone involved in football has heard of the fine youth academy that AFC Ajax possesses called ‘De Toekomst’ or ‘The Future’. Founded on 18th March 1900, the club plays the so-called ‘Total Football’ approach in a 4-3-3 system invented by the great Dutch manager RinusMichelsNotable players Johan cyruff, Marco Van basten, Denis Bergkemp,clerenceseedorf , wesleysneijderPorto FC :Portuguese club….in last decade has been one of the most underated team to perform exceptionally welll both financially and trophy wise…. In last 10 years 8 league titles , 2 UEFA cups and 1 champions league title.Its policy grow a player and sell them for high profits…Porto’s model is clear, they need to constantly find, develop and produce top class players who can produce profit and at the same time keep them competing on all fronts. They have had some bad deals, like the sales of Luis Fabiano and Diego for £2.5million and £5million respectively. That is to be expected, it would be impossible to perfect every single deal. Porto’s model has proved extremely successful but it heavily relies on its scouting system in South America and its own youth system in order to make a profit. One day it is very possible it will come unstuck but the club’s record in the last decade speaks for itself. The fact it has sales of £400million on players and 24 trophies is a truly incredible record for a club with the most unique model in the history of the sport.

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by
small men who find it easier to live the world
they’ve been given than to explore the power
they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact.
It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration.
It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is
temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
