In my previous post, I outlined how we achieved a very respectable 12th place in our second season in Serie A. The consequence is that we have another season to accumulate finance to develop all aspects of the club.
The Board agreed to improve both the training and youth facilities, which underpins my strategy of developing youth players and improving senior players to sell for large profits. This had already borne fruit last season when we sold Cedric Teuchert for £7.5m and Max Christiansen for £2.7m.
Until the club is established in European competitions, selling to buy for a profit would have to remain a core strategy.
In this post I will look at:
- Youth development progress to date
- Summer transfer activity
- Performance in my third season
- A change of club
