A new list on FMInside, which shows you the Best Dutch Wonderkids in Football Manager 2019. A total of 32 players on the list and all players have enough potential to develop into world class players.
Despite Dutch football slowly declining in recent years, they still produce a big amount of awesome talents in Football Manager. On our FM19 Wonderkids list they are represented in almost every position and that says enough.
Eredivisie great place to look for Wonderkids
A lot of young Dutch talents are picked up by big clubs in England these days. Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City have all been fishing in the pond over at the Netherlands and have signed many talented players in recent years. Nathan Ake, Patrick van Aanholt and Karim Rekik are good examples of players that made the move and then made it as a professional football elsewhere.
However, it is still good to see many talented players still in the Dutch Eredivisie. Two thirds of this list still earn their wages in Holland and could help bring this nation back to the top of Europe’s football.
Problems with Dutchies at big foreign clubs
Main concern for talented Dutch players at big foreign clubs is the lack of opportunities they will receive. Take Tahith Chong for example. With a -9 potential one of the biggest Dutch wonderkids in Football Manager. However, there is only a slim chance he will reach his full potential due to the lack of first team football he will receive. Can you sign him? Fat chance you will, as United will demand 100M for him. You can sign him on loan for a couple of seasons, but he will always end up back at United. Same goes for Chelsea’s Daishawn Redan and Bayern Munich’s Joshua Zirkzee. Such a shame!
