ANDn First division there is a total of478 players with first team card, YMARCA has analyzed the origin of each one. The great majority comes from the affiliate of a club, after passing through their lower categories earlier. But nevertheless,others took the jump of the baseball (until juveniles) without passing through teams C or B. For example, Jaime Mata, from Getafe, whose first professional team was the Pegaso Tres Cantos.
The numbers are distributed as follows: of the 478,a total of 299 come from a Spanish team. Up to 63 sets, of all the categories of our country, contribute players to Primera teams. 30 contribute exclusively with one.Some are foreigners, and the most representative case, evidently, is that of Leo Messi, although more than 90% are Spanish footballers.

It has also happened with soccer players who left Spain:Yuri, which was formed in the lower categories of Athletic butat the end of his youth he went to Tottenhambefore returning to Spain.
