This week we were fortunate to be joined by Eric Laurie who is currently working in Norway, Molde FK in the Norwegian Eliteserien, as Head of Academy Performance Analysis and a coach on the U16 staff. In this interview, Eric discusses the role analysis at youth level as well as the career path for a young analyst in the professional game. His own journey is a unique one, growing up in the United States and now working at a professional club in Europe, and he has advice for young analysts and coaches who may have similar ambitions in the game.
