Dr Erkut Söğüt
Founding Partner at Family & Football and Football Agent Institute
I use Comparisonator platform in my daily player comparison routine to understand my players’ performance much better and much faster.
Comparisonator interprets player transfer data in a very easily and understandable manner.
Nowadays, agents started to use data more to present their players to potential clubs. Agents can use data to help them in scouting and recruiting new clients. I use the Comparisonator platform in my daily player comparison routine to understand my players’ performance much better and faster. I am able to produce reports on my own within a few clicks on the platform and share them with my own player portfolio. It has also been very useful to understand teams’ performance in order to identify their positional needs. Platform’s best attribute is its speed. Thanks to Comparisonator, my own team of scouts and analysts are able to conduct one vs. one performance reviews with our own players & produce meaningful reports to share with decision-makers in seconds. Thanks to the Comparisonator platform, I am now able to interpret the football data in the easiest way and effectively pass my knowledge to participants in our football agency education courses. Although I have a team of analysts in the Family & Football team to back me up at all times, I understand player performance fluctuations on my own.
