The 10 footballers who will dominate in the coming years
They are getting ready to take the baton and write their own story
The 10's are gone, the 20's are gone, the era of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi is gone, another one is coming and the new stars are looking forward…
The last days of December 2019 were different from those of previous years, as it was not just the time for the report of the year, but of the decade.
A decade, which in football was Spanish. Real Madrid and Barcelona were the ones who dominated, Atletico Madrid were, extremely honest, the European Cups went to the Iberians almost every year and the same happened with the Golden Ball. Cristiano Ronaldo with Real or Lionel Messi with Barcelona. Ante, and a Luka Modric, with Real, in between. All this is the story of the 2nd decade of the 21st century, but for a few days now the 3rd has begun and the story is waiting to be written. By whom;
Hard to say for sure. However, there are candidates and so we decide to bet on ten footballers, choosing young ages, who can dominate in this decade. To mark it. To take the baton from the two "monsters" who did what they wanted the previous ten years…
Most believe that he is the one who will definitely mark this decade. And why not believe it? The Frenchman, at the age of 21, is already a world champion, he is a champion in his country with both Monaco and PSG, it is very likely to celebrate the summer and the Euro, is the one that already causes various transfer scenarios with amounts that even reach… 350 million euros!
Ο Killian Bape scores at a better pace than Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi did at his age, with the combination of speed-power-execution being something unique.
It was enough to see him in the Stuttgart jersey a few years ago to understand, although the team was not good at all, that he stood out. Terribly fast with the ball on his feet and with amazing technique, the problem of the German forward was the fact that he missed opportunities in every way…
But that was something that could be fixed and it has already happened. With the Leipzig, now, claims the title in the Bundesliga, even claims the title of top scorer, while he has won a permanent position in the national team. At the age of 23, Werner is a target of various big clubs in Europe and he knows that the best is ahead of him.
A few weeks ago, in Leicester - Liverpool, he made an amazing race following the phase, which he finally completed with a nice shot in the corner. How many right backs can do such a race and finish the phase so comfortably? How many right-backs, in general, can be so decisive in their team's creative game? Jürgen Klopp's Reds are like a well-tuned machine, in which everyone knows what to do but everyone has the freedom to create.
And Trent Alexander-Arnold, just 21 years old, can create things and miracles in the future. With her T-shirt, of course Liverpool. The team of his city, which he adored since he was a child.
Frankie De Jong
Dutchman who stands out with the Ajax jersey and gets a transfer to Barcelona. Usual scenario. What is not common is to see a midfielder at the age of 22 play with a maturity of 30 and show it in all areas. In how he sees the field, in how he controls the rhythm of the match, in how he knows how to cover spaces to help suspensively, even in how he speaks.
Frankie De Jong is in this category of footballers who do not stand out with their tattoos and hair, but with the way he welcomes the ball, caresses it, sends it where it needs to go. And that's why he can get where he needs to go in the future.
We learned it a few months ago but we learned it… well. And the defenses of Liverpool, Napoli and KRC Genk learned him from the other side. The 19-year-old Norwegian forward was the pleasant surprise of this season with Salzburg, as he became only the 5th player in the history of the Champions League, after Alessandro Del Piero, Sergei Rebrov, Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo and Roberto Levanto in the top five. of the group.
He did not make it to the 6th, but in total he scored 8 goals in the groups and that was enough to get a transfer a few weeks ago in Dortmund. Fast, strong and with a great sense of goal, it is a classic 9ari in terms of the way it moves in the area and Borussia seems to be an ideal choice to keep playing and scoring. Rather easily.
Football has escaped in recent years and the amounts are constantly growing, as if we are not talking about money. Nevertheless, no matter how exaggerated the situation has become, the entry of Atletico Madrid of Diego Simeone in the process of giving 126 million euros to acquire a 19-year-old, says something.
And what he is saying is that the Rochiblancos will probably get it with the above, in the future, the money they gave. The defensive game of the Argentine coach, of course, is not the best for the creative players, but the Joao Felix has already shown that it has.
His technique is awesome, but the scariest thing is his football thinking. The 19-year-old Portuguese is logical to have Cristiano Ronaldo as an idol, but his game can be reminiscent of Rui Costa, for example. Ballador and airy, if he avoids being built, he will be strongly reminiscent of Kaka.
When the Leicester agreed with Genk at 17 million pounds in December 2016, making her a 20-year-old, then, Nigerian midfielder, most in England talked about the "new Cande". The truth is that usually the British do not fall into their predictions, no matter how much they like gambling, but in this case they probably τα went to the box office.
Leicester's impressive run in the Premier League this year has resulted in the deification of many, Brendan Rodgers and players, but what really stands out is the 23-year-old Nigerian midfielder. First in tackling and cutting across Europe, it is a center in itself and the big clubs, inside or outside England, will soon focus on it and claim it. Especially with the way football is evolving, Didi may be the most valuable midfielder in the coming years.
At the age of 17 he decided to leave Manchester City and England and go abroad, signing in Dortmund. A choice that justified him 100%, as shown by the fact that he was included in the top 11 of the Bundesliga in the 2nd season in Germany. Why did he enter the top 11? Because he had 12 goals and 18 assists, driving everyone crazy.
Sancho continues at the same pace of course, having managed to win a place in the national team of his country, where he has several fans. Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United, even City that had him and lost him υπάρχουν There are fans elsewhere, such as in Italy (Juventus), since the 20-year-old Englishman is an extreme who dances on the line, dribbles the opponent, makes very easy goals for his teammates and -even less- he can easily score.
Matisse de Licht
At the age of 19 he was the captain of Ajax who reached the "4" of the Champions League, the captain of the Dutch national team and one of the most expensive defenders of all time, getting a transfer to Juventus for 75 million euros. A few months later, having turned 20, the De Licht is in the process of adapting to Italy and after a very difficult start, things seem to be improving. There are no doubts about his talent, his potential, after all.
Amazing with the ball on his feet, as he can easily take a 40-pound ball with both feet, very strong and fast, the Dutchman has shown that his great skill is his ability to read the phases and clean them before they are even created. When he learns, because in Italy he is probably sure that he will learn it, even if he marks it, he will be a beast that the attackers will not want to face.
He made his Serie debut at the age of 16 years and 242 days, which means that he became the second youngest debutant on an Italian stadium. She is now 20 years old, already approaching 200 appearances with Milan, is a key player in the Italian national team and has the whole future of his own. The tragic situation of the Rossoneri these years, of course, does not help him at all, as it was not in his favor and the loss that occurred with the issue of the renewal of his contract, by his manager, the well-known Mino Raiola.
In fact, not a few people believe that about him Donaruma it would be better to leave the Milanese and go to a team that will be better in terms of competition, more stable financially and will not have the bond that it has with Milan as a player of its academies.
This is not good at all for a footballer when things go wrong in the team, since he is the one from whom they ask for the most or say the most. Above all, however, Donaroma just needs to work and wait for his best years to come. Because these λίγο are a little late for the goalkeepers. And that is in his favor.
