– It is no secret that the three districts have chosen not to send players to camps in 2018. We think it is very unfortunate, especially for the players, " says Jörgen Eriksson, vice-chairman of the Swedish Football association to svenskfotboll.see.
But by the board of directors has now decided to Copenhagen takes over the selection process of the districts continued to choose to stand outside, have we ensured that all players are treated equal – that the selection is complete and that the ambitions of our spelarutbildningsplan can be completed.
, president of Skånes football federation, says that the district will not prevent the 15-year-olds Copenhagen.

But he is critical of all of the districts to send 16 pieces of 15 year old boys and girls to the elite camps. Whether it is the island of Gotland, Skåne or Stockholm.
" We are a large district with many players. All players should have the same conditions and for that we should be given time to look at all the players we need to start selecting from the age of 13. We do not think that it is in line with the mission, we perceive that our societies have vis-à-vis the Skåne football federation, says Claes Ohlsson.

players develop in different ways.
– All does not develop as fast and with an early selection risk is the risk that many of the younger players not going forward in the right way. We believe that our mission is that our players get as good education as far as up in age as it is possible, " says Claes Ohlsson.
" We have always said that you should move the elite camps up in the age of. When the camps is set at 15 years, I think it will be too early for us. It may fit good for the smaller districts that do not have as many players. But I do not understand why all districts should have the same when we have so different conditions, " says Claes Ohlsson.
