About this video: Getting scouted can be tough, even tougher if you don't know how to impress football scouts! Now, you should never change your game in order to impress a coach, scout or anyone else, but there are some things to keep in mind and work towards so that when a scout is at one of your games, you are more likely to take the opportunity.
What Are Football Scouts Looking For?
A former scout for Chelsea FC when asked about this went over what he called the two A's, ability and attitude!
He described ability as a players decision making on the pitch. So the question of how to impress scouts in football is half answered with just that!
It makes sense. It doesn't matter how skilled you are if your decision making is poor. IQ on the pitch is highly valued at all levels especially the higher up the ladder you climb.
Notice how he also mentioned attitude. Another scout described his impression of Gareth Bale when he 17 by saying that he was humble, yet confident without being arrogant.
Impressing a soccer scout is more than just ability. How is the mental side of your game? Will you mesh well with the other players and coach? Or will you cause problems?
Are you confident? Or are you going to continually dip in form because you doubt yourself?
Football scouts will want to see good examples of all of this! Sure, your tactical awareness, physical attributes, and other ares will play a part of the whole equation, but there is a reason why ability (decision making), and attitude were mentioned first.
