A talented coach, Michael Lindeman worked with Martin Jol at both Ajax Amsterdam and Hamburger SV, before following him to Craven Cottage in June 2011.
Known for his meticulous approach to player preparation, Lindeman specialises in advanced physical and physiological methods – a pioneering attitude that makes him one of European football's most forward-thinking.
An innovator by nature, he is renowned as the first to have used the Omega Wave computer system in football – a transmitter system that allows Lindeman to measure a player's physical and mental capacity. In his 18 months at Ajax, he reportedly halved the amount of injuries experienced at the club.
Lindeman also worked with the Polish national team during their 2008 European Championships campaign as well as FC Luzern, Young Boys Bern and Grasshopper Zurich in what has been a fascinating football vocation.
Although he never played the game professionally, Lindeman has a sound football education, expanding his experience by working in a variety of areas including therapy, fitness, personal training, nutrition and sports psychology.
