Description

Written by two leading football academics, this authoritative, accessible text explores the important role sports science plays in professional football. With billion-pound television deals and multi-million player transfers, a football team's performance has repercussions far beyond the pitch and league table. As a result, sports science plays an increasingly important role in the game, helping to develop elite performers. Science in Soccer offers a series of contemporary insights into the multidisciplinary approach to delivering sports science support in elite level professional football. Through exclusive contributions from leading academics and practitioners working with some of the world's leading football clubs. Science in Soccer covers broad topics such physiology, psychology, performance analysis and sociology. Experts in the field also focus on specific areas such as physical preparation of elite players, injury prevention, fitness assessment, nutrition, player development and performance analysis. Science in Soccer helps coaches, practitioners, students and academics translate theory into practice and is one of the most comprehensive books on football sports science to date.
