How to be a great football player
By Football Italian staff The latest in our countdown of the best players of the world.
1 / 3 What do you need to become a great player?
First of all, you need the best body in the world – the same body that will help you win.
If you’re lucky enough to be born in the best country in the whole world, then your body should be perfect.
In the game, you can only be good at one thing at a time.
Second, you also need to be good on the pitch.
That is a bit different from the rest of the players because of your position on the field, your position as a centre-back or even your position at the back.
If that’s the case, you should aim for a position where you can dominate the game and create chances.
That means playing a defensive role, playing on the wings or even as a winger.
You need to understand the style of the game in order to be successful.
That’s why you need an advanced understanding of the style.
If the coach can teach you how to be an effective footballer, then he can teach the rest.
Finally, the most important thing is your mentality.
That can be measured by your attitude, how you act on the training ground, your work ethic and how you interact with the media.
You must have the courage to change if you want to be the best.
