Guest: Matteo Campodonico
Today, much of what sport has always meant to true fans, has been lost in a blizzard of corporate communications, fireworks and froth. As a result, the attachments, that were once so strong, seem more trivial in the global age of televised sport as entertainment. What was once authentic, is increasingly staged. In this podcast, we’ll get back to the things that sport has always meant to true fans.
Episode 25: The boys host the founder of Wyscout, Matteo Campodonico, who explains how he developed his vision for moneyball for European football. From his love of Genoa FC, detesting Sampdoria, to being shown Sacchi videos as a player, and realizing the immense market for sports data in scouting and coaching. It’s a unique window into how the player and coach transfer market REALLY works. And how football and business are about to change! Matteo gives his incredible insight into the last 20 years of Italian football decline and how PE may bring it back. A very bright man.
