There is not another sport in the world that inspires so many ambivalent feelings of joy or sadness, like soccer. Soccer moves passions in all countries and has become, over time, a mass phenomenon that has a social impact, which well channeled, can be a motor for development and social welfare.
In soccer nothing is written in stone, it is based on the hard work and sacrifice that makes teams and players great, and let’s not forget that motivation is an essential tool for growth. In this article, we will show you some of the most famous and motivational quotes said by widely known soccer players.
“Talent is not everything. You can have it from the cradle, but it is necessary to learn the trade to be the best.“
“I worry more about being a good person than being the best player in the world.”
“I learn even from children on the beach; maybe because my game is child-like, I have fun like a child.”
“I do not play to win Golden Balls; I play to be happy.”
“You must respect people and work hard to be fit. I used to train very hard. When other players went to the beach after training, I was kicking the ball.”
“I’m not a perfectionist, but I like things done well. More important than that, I feel an incessant need to learn, to improve, to get involved, not just to please the coach and the fans, but to feel satisfied with myself. It is my conviction that there are no limits to learn and that you can never stop, no matter how old you are.”
“Money allows you to live better, but it is not what inspires me. I live to play football, not because of its economic benefits, I also play for the team and not for myself.”
In these phrases by the greatest soccer players, we notice that in this sport is not only training that leads to wins. It is having passion and a desire to be a part of something bigger. If you win then enjoy it, if you lose then it is a lesson for yourself. It is about having fun, learning, and living.
Sport is a source of health and well-being. It contributes significantly to the creation of healthy habits and improves the quality of life of those who practice it; this sport also works like excellent instrument to promote a more inclusive society and to fight against intolerance, racism, and violence. Soccer is a game by definition, but its reach goes beyond that.
