1 – What advice would you give parents who want to give their children the best possible chance of becoming a pro- athlete? Determination and dedication. Becoming a pro-athlete will not be easy and you will often get setbacks, you need to be determined to keep training and learning. Keep them level-headed and listen to the coaches. They need to learn how to cope with disappointment as well as adulation as often you will receive rejections before you get the big break. Training is incredibly important and you can’t skip anything there are no shortcuts to the top you must work hard to achieve your goals.
2 – How important is diet and nutrition to a pro athlete and is it different between an Olympic swimmer and top-level footballer? You don’t need to be on a constant diet as you will burn a lot of calories while training and playing. You need a balanced healthy diet to allow your body to recover between sessions and to ensure you are fit and healthy. The key to it is balanced, you can have anything in moderation and once in a while reward yourself but don’t make it a habit.
3 – As a footballer at the highest level how is easy was it to motivate yourself and how as it changed since you’ve gone into coaching? Motivation at the highest level is never a problem. Your teammates will drive you on in training as you don’t want to let anyone down. Coaching is more difficult as you are reliant on other people you can get everything planned and have fantastic training yet when the players cross that white line onto the pitch on match-day things are out of your hands. You have to trust the players to do everything you have been working on and to carry out your plan.
