As you have seen, the work of a soccer player is not limited to what he does on the field. To be a soccer player you have to make certain sacrifices. First of all, rest is essential: it is recommended to sleep between 8 and 10 hours a day, as training sessions are demanding. Hydration and nutrition are basic to be able to respond during games. It is necessary to hydrate with water and isotonic drinks and reduce alcoholic beverages as much as possible. A soccer player does without a party for a large part of his life.
