My name is mantas uzemeckas I'm 17 and I'm still in college and I'm doing football level 2 I'm leaving this year and I would love to do football I don't see myself doing anything else then football I've been playing football since 9 till now and if there is anyway you could lead me to a good patch as please help me out thank you and it would be easier if you could email me firstname.lastname@example.org
I apologize if this question is a bit unorthodox but it is surprisingly difficult to get professional soccer career advice. My son is a budding talent as a keeper. He is currently training in Italy in preparation for an upcoming trial with a good Serie B team. At the same time he has been invited to trial with a Serie A team from Romania at the end of the month. I can't disclose which teams because of negotiations however I can tell you that both are apparently at or near the top of their respective divisions.
My thought is that from a career perspective it may be better for him to stay with the Italian team even though it is a lower division because since it is Italian soccer there may be more benefit for him down the road. The agent that is trying market him is telling him that even if it is Romanian soccer (not that they aren't talented) he needs to take any Tier A/1 tryout that he can get if he wants a serious chance at big ticket teams later on.
I would appreciate your thoughts.
I've seen many people saying they "want" to be a professional footballer, but I don't want to become a professional footballer, I need to become one. I'm currently enrolled in college but as I've known for a long time, school just isn't for me, I'm a smart kid don't get me wrong, but I know in my heart that I'm wasting my time. I'm 18, I've watched and played soccer since I was 4 years old, I don't watch any other sport, in fact I don't like any other sport. I cried when Donovan scored vs Algeria and when we lost to Brazil, and you don't know how badly I wanted to write to FIFA about the Torsten Frings(the audacity he has for playing in the MLS angers me so much) hand ball or Koman Coulibaly's horrific call against Slovenia.
Though, I don't think you want to hear about that, you're probably interested in hearing about what sets me apart from everyone else. Well here it goes:
1. I truly believe its my calling, I can't see myself doing anything else and honestly I can't bring myself to do anything else, as I said above.
2. I told my mother that in 10 years time I would've made enough money being a professional footballer that her and my father wouldn't have to work another day in their lives, I also told my girlfriend that I would make sure that her college education was completely paid for, as would grad school, and I don't intend to go back on that promise.
3. I want to share my story with others, that against all odds you can persevere, you can make your dreams a reality. Like Jay Demerit did with his movie, except I intend to hold seminars and instruct camps as well and I won't gain a penny from it, its strictly to help others, I'm a firm believer in giving without receiving.
4. Along with the helping others bit, I want to create and take part in charities, hands on, not just throwing money and getting tax deductions.
5. Finally, this kind of ties in everything, I want to make a difference to people. In this one video I watched, 85,000 fans in the Bernabeu chanted a name.... "Cristiano, Cristiano, Cristiano"... I want people to do the same for me, I want people to remember my name, I want to see a kid walking down a street wearing my jersey.
Maybe I'm a dreamer, but I intend to give it my best effort for God, for myself, for my family, for my girlfriend, for my friends and for everyone else. In order to do so though Lucas I need your help. Physically, I'm fine, I just need work technically, I'm very fast (best attribute) but my foot skills/ 1-on-1 ability isn't up to par, I need a better touch, I'm tall but terrible winning aerial dual's, and I need work on positioning and making runs. Positives, I'm fast, tall, good at passing/crossing, I can use both feet well, I have a good shot with both feet and I'm good at tackling. Mentally, I'm also shaky, partially why my 1-on-1 ability isn't that good, I have low confidence on the pitch and I often get afraid of messing up and if I ever did it would be a disaster, I'm very hard on myself and maybe I don't need as much help as I say but I still need help. Do you have drills, tips, etc. that I can follow that are directed towards my issues? If so, please get back to me at your earliest convenience.
Recently realized that after many years of playing soccer with a few recent year off of organized soccer that nothing made me happier. The ambition to make it is stronger that any other desire or wish. It is like a voice inside that wont leave me alone. Therefore i am looking for advice, tips and representation to make it pro anywhere because a life making it by on soccer would be tenfold more fullfilling that the mechanical engineering path im on now. I am left footed and am well at LM, CM, CF, LW and ST. Though i probably excel at LM/LW or CF. I am 20 years old from USA and am willing to relocate anywhere and learn any language need. I am also willing to let it take as long as it needs to, this desire won't die and the training won't stop. Currently know English, Spanish, a little German and Russian. Will play anywhere; I do have my favorite leagues but my hope and dream is to play anywhere and inspire fans. If you could message me back or reach me at email@example.com with any help or information i would be beyond thankful.
I'm 13 years old, live in Canada, and am trying to work my way up the soccer ladder. I practice everyday and my dream is to be a pro soccer player. However, I am going to attend a prestigious school that focuses on Academics, and my parents want me to stop playing. How do I convince them to let me play? How do I get scouted and put into youth academies? If you could get back to me I would really appreciate it. Thank you
Just asking you to hear me out firstname.lastname@example.org
Okay I didn't know how to contact you or send you a message privatley. Im here to say i want to become a professional footballer but the thing is i only been playing for 4 months but i got up in the summer at 6:00 am to go practice with my teacher and friend everyday except sunday because its church day but i am really determined to play and im motivated i get emotional about the thought of ever being a proffesional footballer i know there might be thing i have to give up my family is military in America we are stationed in korea right now. And im 13 my birthday is in july i want to get on a development team. Football is my love my family isnt very wealthy we are not made of maney i will say but development teams are alot of money and thats something my family doesnt have but i will do anyhting to be a soccer player even if that means departing from my family to join a development team and later be part of that club my friend that taught me everything i know will be moving next year in the summer. He is going to be stationed in Italy or the states and either place he goes he has the determination motivation and the potential and skills to become proffesional he has his heart in football just as me he is my role model he says he is proud of me and i get emotional right there he says he has made me better than most kids that have played for years. And he says im catching up to him in skills. He is the one that made me know what i want my family to be proud of and what i want to do in life and thats to love and play football. I know football is the sport where 30 is when your old in soccer and thats going to be around the time you expire unless if you are very good and deterrmined then you will retire later. When my friend asked me what position i wanted to play i said forward. But i eventually ended up a midfielder from his dad which was the coach of our youth soccer team and i enjoy that oposition vary much because i like to run back and forth and score but i alsolike to defend chase people thats in my area and have the ball i tried to play forward but whenever i would see the openent wide open with the ball no one putting pressure on it i would just have the instinct to chase that person for the ball. Now i perfer left mid or center mid or center attacking mid. I know this is very long but i wanted to take the time because i want this more than anything. Im not humble i dont try like try to impress any one like saying i have the best first touch and i can shoot really well i still have stuff to learn but i need your help my love of playing soccer means if i get a contract with Makesfield i would take it and move uo from there or even stay with them and help them to become champions instead of the people that are always at the bottom of the league table. I need your help i hope you read this contact me back please from facebook Justin Schmidt where i live Pyeongtaek South Korea message me there or my email which would probally be easier my email is email@example.com please help me out thanks.
Hello my name is Juan im a 15 year old boy that dreams of becoming a pro i practice everyday and work hard i think of my self as a to be Midfield Magician my friends tell my have superb touch i can put a ball where i want it really drastic game like situations i was wondering if you could help me out on chasing my dream.
Hello Lucas, I want to become a professional soccer player anywhere -prefer Europe- in the world. i am 15 and have a small edge over most of the competition in my school. Most of the students that are better than I am are much older than I am. But some of the players my exact age are equal or better to me and they hardly practice while i practice mostly everyday. I joined a small U-17 division C traveling club. I suppose while i did not score any goals the coaches were happy with my playing and said "I expect good things from you". I am currently practicing everyday but was wondering if you had any idea how i can get so good that I could one day go pro.
Hey Lucas I know it has been awhile since you made this article, but I am always thinking what if becoming a pro does not work out, is it possible to have a back-up job? I have beein playing in house league since I was 5 and now I am 14. I have no idea really on how to get noticed. Any ideas?
