Its often said that Ajax no longer produce young players, but just look at Van Der Vaart, he is only 19 and is already on the starting line up and one of Ajax's best players. and not only to they produce players but they scout in great players like Mido. They found Mido where no professional football team would look for players, in Egypt, They have an eye for talent i say

Didn't Mido play in Genk or something before he came to Ajax? That would indicate they found him in Belgium, not Egypt ;)

As for his Egyptian career, didn't he play for one of the biggest clubs? Zamalek or Al Ahly? In that case he would be quite well known.. ;)

All I want to say is Ajax is the third best football school

after River Plate
and Red Star

I mean these two have no competition.

Well u have a good point. About red star- theyre not the only team that produces hot prospects in their league. And River plate have the advantage of south american players that are born with balls at their feet. ie the south american footballism culture makes it easy to find young players over there

Holland doesnt have that addiction though. Their youth academy is based on their highly professional and unique style of training and treatment of players.

Thats why it is rumoured that their players act very professional and have a strict code of conduct- most of them anyways.

Not to mention Davids, who is rumoured to have walked out on a conference when a cellphone rung.
