A lot of young academy players have to end their careers early due to many circumstances.

Based on data from the FA and newspapers, only 10% of academy players will sign a professional contract after finishing the entire course of the football academy.

The football world is tough and very few players will become professional players. Even from that 10 % that are successful and sign a professional contract after finishing at the academy, no one can be 100% sure how long their professional football career will last
