HOW COME ?

In all arabic countries i see young people who play in the streets football and football is the most pop thing here in arabic countries....looking at those young kids i get amazed by theyre talent simply amazing...its in all arab countries i have been too. But when it comes to real proffesional football were simply horrible.

First: It is not about how talented you are as a kid, how you develope and progress as a footballer technically and mentally is what makes great footballers what they are.

Second: The enviroment in most Arabic countries is just so backwards to have a developed football. Affecting those kids by putting them down every time they see a son of some big time official in the country taking their place in a prestigous club.

Third: Arabic clubs do not have the required youth trainers to develope those kids.

Fourth: Even if a kid somehow was super talented, he will end playing in a shyte league which will not help him develope and progress and actually the vice versa what usually happens.

P.S: If Arabic countries give a rat's arse about football or sports in general, you would find kids playing in the street from the very biggening.

ufff.....this is a nice topic, and a one where you will not get a definite answer.

I agree with Pooh and what he said. I will add one more thing, is that football generaly 'ma bita3mi khobiz' as we say. I am talking from what I know in Jordan. Only of recent that I see some changes. Only a couple of years ago that football has become a profession here in Jordan. Before that, our footballers had other jobs, jobs that paid better than playing football. And the jobs I am talking about are jobs like cab drivers, security guards, hotel clercs, etc.....

Plus we should remember that it's always easier to blame the ones in higher positions, when sometimes (well maybe most of the times), the players themselves are the ones who are unprofessional. Almost every player wants to go on the easy way, no one wants to push himself an extra bit, so they go on thinking cheating the coach, or cheating the FA is smart. When at the end they're cheating themselves.

But then when I say stuff like this, I wonder why players act this way, and I realise that because there aren't enough incentives, and that the FA acts in a bad unprofessional way. So as we see we it's a vicious circle. It's easy to blame this and that, but the real task to do something about this.

At the moment the Jordanian FA has made drastic changes towards improving upon this, and many other things aswell in football. HRH Prince Ali is doing an amazing and honest job. We must be patient, changes will come, but we need time, these things take alot of years. If you ask any Jordanian who follows football about the last 5 years, he will definately tell you that football has improved ALOT. And I believe there is still room for improvement.

The 3 basic elements are money honesty and patience.

I think we'll see football in Arab countries boom, but it won't be this year or the next one. Maybe in 10 to 15 years, but it will happen.

No it is not true. That would be super dumb! Hassouna and Amer who are both players in foreign leagues, are also players to the NT.

The decision was not to allow any NT players to play abroad for the period before the Asian qualifications and during it, well, it did not really change the outcome though.

its very true
if we go back in time
1995 u-17 world cup
the best player of the tournament was a omani
Mohammed Kathiri
he is meant to be 28 this year
and before reading up on this tournament
i knew nothing of this player
what happened to him after all these years?
well definitely he didnt develop his skills and ended up in a s***y club and no one ever heard of him again
or he got an injury because of the rough play in these bad teams and couldnt play for the rest of his life
