Using Video and Stats to Monitor Your Player Portfolio With Wyscout
Negotiating and agreeing player transfers is a complex and hugely competitive business. Agencies and intermediaries who understand and implement a greater application of video and data are speaking in the new language of football, allowing them to connect the right player to the right club whilst demonstrating greater value.
At Wyscout our mission is to empower football professionals with technology and data to enhance their role and become more effective in their daily work. With data and video solutions designed to support the needs of multiple stakeholders within the modern game, Wyscout solutions have been designed to help intermediaries maximize the labor and financial investment across their portfolio of players.
This blog series is a practical guide through the multiple tools on the Wyscout platform that can help intermediaries to become more efficient and more effective in their role. In this first part, we’ll take a look at the various steps to be taken when monitoring performances, one of the most important aspects of the modern intermediaries’ job.
In Wyscout, ‘Agent Portfolio’ can be used as a ‘shortcut’ to access all content related to the players managed by the same agent. By adding every assisted footballer to the Portfolio, agents are able to keep track of their performances by checking video and stats regularly.
Setting up your portfolio takes just a few minutes with access to over 460,000 players in the Wyscout database. Simply select players that you manage to view their profiles.
The ‘Events’ and ‘Stats’ tab can be checked to see all the video clips and the data related to the selected player. All videos are divided by type – i.e. smart passes, defending duels, shots, etc – while stats can be filtered by competition, season, position and other parameters, giving you complete flexibility to select the data that is important to you.
Adding selected video clips to create a custom, personalized allows you to share with other colleagues within the agency.

Step 1. Access the platform, then open the App menu at the top of the screen.
