“When a young footballer outgrows their youth academy and the time comes for them to impress on the senior stage one of a few things will inevitably happen. Whether the player is slowly transitioned into the squad, being afforded the odd substitute appearance, or is thrown straight in at the deep end – through necessity, as injuries thin the squad, or because the manager wishes to scrutinise the player’s mentality under intense pressure – both scenarios will give some indication of the player’s aptitude. Solid performances will enforce the manager’s trust as well as the player’s belief and their playing time will grow, eventually allowing them to slot seamlessly into the squad.” Bundesliga Fanatic
