Science in Football: Young Iarense joins Northeastern’s data analytics team

While still in journalism school, Douglas Sartor began his football career as a press officer at Cricima Esporte Clube. However, his career took a new turn. From the press room, he’s moved to the coal team’s technical committee and, more recently, to CSA, from Alagoas, where he works, but he still maintains connections with Iara, where he follows his family and also goes on vacation every year.

“At the end of 2015, the club went through a transitional moment in management, in which the staff also changed and the performance analysis was left without a professional. That’s when I received an invitation and decided to accept it. Our rooms were together and we exchanged information, which made it easier”, says young Iarense.

According to Douglas, the invitation to play for the club located in the northeast came through Algeria coach Fox, as they previously worked together at Tigre. He adds, “I am grateful to all the professionals I worked with. I always tried to be in touch with technicians and professionals in the area, and to gather experiences to better develop my business.”

“I do all the collective and individual analyzes of our opponents, looking for defensive and offensive parameters for each stage of the game. He concludes that “in order to better understand our players, we pass, for example, the details in the video to our defenders with the characteristics of the attacker that they will face with the opponent” .

“Data science has arrived in Brazil under the influence of Europe and other sports. The big Brazilian clubs already have a specific sector of analysis, as it is an important tool. It is not just statistics. It has to be understood and brought into the reality of teams. If a team succeeds in making passes, I need to know what type Which passes were and how they helped them in a match within the team play model…”, he points out.
