Чуть деталей, чем будет сабж заниматься
It is part of a broader question that is very pertinent at the club. The transfer budget is mediocre. Wages are a problem. The club feel they have a particularly strong group of young players knocking on the door. But the Premier League has been a notoriously difficult nut to crack for the 18-to-21 age group in recent years and the Jadon Sancho principle is a dazzling example of how an increasing number of prodigies in the English system are encouraged to develop outside of these shores. In England, conventional wisdom dictates it is not practical to throw a bunch of young players in at the deep end.
Arsenal have come up with a strategy to try to tackle the need for progress in this age group. The “transition team” was launched this summer, with Freddie Ljungberg central to it. The Swede’s strides on the youth coaching circuit at Arsenal are highly regarded. He has spent time with most of the age groups at Hale End because they are so impressed to see how he fares and what impression he makes, and his promotion to the first-team staff after an exciting year with the Under-23s is a move to create a link between youth and senior squads. “The transition from Under-23 to first team is massive,” says the director of football, Raúl Sanllehí. “It’s a pretty specifically English issue as we don’t have B teams playing at a high level which our European competitors have. So we need to make careful choices around who stays with the Under-23s, who trains [and plays] with the first team and who goes on loan. The transition team will be responsible for managing development plans for each and every player to best optimise their potential.”
Ljungberg is acutely aware there is a cluster of talent from the academy that needs testing out, needs chances. Arsenal want to avoid players disappearing into the black hole of the 18- to 21-year-old football drift. The strategy began taking shape last season when the attackers Reiss Nelson and Emile Smith Rowe had loan spells in Germany. The next steps for them, for the defender Krystian Bielik, who did well at Charlton, and for the crop who had tasters at Arsenal last season such as Willock and Bukayo Saka and a few more besides are the focus of Ljungberg and his transition team.
