Statistics have long been a part of football. Instead of notepads and eyewitness accounts, algorithms and video technology now count when it comes to collecting and analyzing match data. The Manchester United analyst and coaching team leverages this raw data from all matches, for example, for opponent analysis and performance analysis.
Players’ ball contacts, running distances, duels and much more can be video recorded. This data offers advantages in terms of preparation for match play and self-analysis. While on the road for away matches, access to this data and the training material based on it must be ensured.
