Pro football players when they were young

Post by CR17Ronaldo » 13 Jun 2005, 17:54

that is a question that I always asked myself do prosoccer players were good at school If u take Cristiano Ronaldo everyone in school was laughing
at him because of his different portuguese accent from Madeira mine is from the Azores anyway ... He even throw a chair to his teacher ... but when
you have a special talent in football and some team is about to recruit you I think most soccer players will forget about studies But the question is what happen if some player broke a leg what will they do ?
Never give up keep training and reach to your goals Its all depends on YOU!

Pro football is a tough sport. I've never spoken to an experienced player who hasn't struggled with injuries or hasn't had operations and stuff. What happens to players like that is they just fade out - you won't see them on the rosters anymore. Players that can last over 8-9 years at a really high level are freaks of nature. But it's very, very rare that a promising youngster gets a career ending injury... it's just the accumulation of them that can wear you down.

Because Sol moved to Arsenal in 2001. People called him "Judas" if I remember well.
