    I always get asked the question what is it like to be a professional goalkeeper or what does it take to be a pro?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The great goalkeeper coach @frans.hoek posted this picture and it answers the question perfectly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Every week football fans (that includes me) watch games on TV and we only get to see the top part of the posted picture. By this I mean - god like footballers with all the lights & glamour, sports cars, hot model girlfriends & wives. What a life, I want that exact life, right???
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Before you get ahead of yourself, here comes the reality check.....
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Believe me, for most run of the mill professional footballers and want to be pro footballers there is way more pain to be had than actual success/gain. Sorry to say this but it's reality, total truth. (This is the bottom part of the posted picture).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
From my experience firstly to even have a slight chance of making it at the pro level you need to have higher than average ability & talent with both hands and feet.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yes, there is the odd keeper here or there who defies the odds & makes it with lower than average talent. To take it a level further it's not only about ability or talent it takes thousands of hours of training, dedication, drive, pain, rejection, loneliness and so much more to be able to compete with keepers who are already at that level.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I've seen tremendous top notch keepers give up because they couldn't handle the journey, constant rejection or simply didn't want to put in the training time needed to succeed. I've seen medium level keepers make it because they had an unbroken train all day everyday atitude, constant dedication and a never give up mentality.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Remember, if it were easy everyone would be a professional footballer.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Having been there myself I can honestly tell you - it is so damn hard. So blessed to have made it....
