Most children in nations where soccer is the dominant sport dream of becoming a professional. Spain is an obvious example of this thinking. Currently there are many people playing soccer at the amateur level, but hoping to become professionals someday.
Some have a privileged talent for soccer. Others have a great head that allows them to develop to their full potential. However, being a professional in this sport requires a lot of sacrifices. It is not enough just to be good, you also need to surround yourself with the best coaches.
Tips on how to achieve this
It is a pity that talented players do not fulfil their dream of playing football. That’s why consistency and having the right tools is key. Surrounding yourself with a football-focused atmosphere, as can happen in a high performance academy, helps in your preparation. Don’t forget that football is a team sport. Therefore, it should also be practised in this way.
Dedicate all the time you have to soccer
The first tip is to dedicate all the time you have to soccer. Your head and your life must be centered around this sport. Train as much as you can, watch professional matches, analyze your successes and mistakes… Watching high-level matches improves your performance, since human beings have a great capacity to learn by imitation.
If you have not started, it is important that you do so as soon as possible. The most important learning phase for a person is the first years of life. Finally, your physical fitness is critical. Without positive habits and healthy routines it is impossible to reach the elite. In modern soccer, the physical dimension is almost as key as the technical or tactical.
Develop your mentality
Soccer is becoming an increasingly media-driven sport. This causes footballers to go from heroes to villains in a matter of seconds. Work on your mentality so that opinions don’t stop you. It is also important that you develop it positively for the most delicate moments of the matches. Coaches highly value players with personality, who do not hide when everything is decided.
Some footballers have sports psychologists, both when things go well and when they go wrong. The last one to confess it was Borja Iglesias. The Betis striker admitted that he feels more confident on the pitch since he has been working on his head. What happens to us on a day-to-day basis, we have to try to make sure it affects soccer as little as possible.
