Oakamoor, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/21/2014 -- UK Publisher Bennion Kearny is delighted to announce the publication of The Footballer's Journey: real-world advice on becoming and remaining a professional footballer.
Many youngsters dream of becoming a professional footballer. But football is a highly competitive world where only a handful will succeed. Many aspiring soccer players don’t know exactly what to expect, or what is required, to make the transition from the amateur world to the ‘bright lights’ in front of thousands of fans.
The Footballer’s Journey is all about how to become a professional footballer and maps out the footballer’s path with candid insight and no-nonsense advice. It examines the reality of becoming a footballer including the odds of ‘making it’, how academies really work, the importance of attitude and mindset, and even the value of having a backup plan if things don’t quite work out.
Filled with real life stories and advice from current and former professionals alike – readers will learn how likely a professional career really is, the importance of sacrifice, how commitment and focus will pay dividends, and much more. The book includes contributions from Chris Smalling, Ben Amos, Steve Claridge, and more than a dozen other professionals. The foreword is by Neil ‘Razor’ Ruddock. If someone dreams of becoming a professional soccer player – this book is a must read.
