Perhaps the biggest obstacle to signing players is that a club does not know very well what they are like. Yes, you can analyze the data, perform various medical tests, watch video after video, but who are they really? Will they adjust to a new life in a new city? Will they get along with their teammates and the coaching staff? Will your skills be integrated into the system? No matter how much research a club does, there is always an element of the unknown.
