Juergen wasn't perfect when it came to pushing the program forward either. He was Wondo and Beckerman's biggest fan. Both were trash as we all know.

Can anybody tell me anything about Ashton Gotz?

Benfica just extended his contract to 2022. That's a great sign and vote of confidence for him! There's a nice video and article on the Benfica page (most of the video is in English).

Benfica put a $47m release clause on Keaton Parks. I don't know how standard it is to put a ridic high # in these contracts....

Pretty standard. If a team submits a bid for the full release clause they automatically get negotiation rights with the player and do not need the teams permission to talk to the player directly. Most teams inflate them with young players to insure they can recoup a great price if they develop into great players.

Pretty much means they value Parks very highly.

47? thats alot. Seems like they believe he will at some point start to be more value due to talent and playing time etc. Dont think you put that value to anyone.

Clubs like Benfica are often credited with finding & developing talent, and are therefore often raided by the Big Clubs/Leagues. Putting a price-tag like this on a young, fairly unknown talent, while extending his initial contract says that they see something in the kid and want to insure that if he does become a major talent that they'll get compensated for him. The release clause doesn't preclude the club from selling him for less....it just insures that if he is a major talent that clubs will have to pony up to get Benfica's consent.
