⚽️FOOTBALL AND ITS HEALTH CHALLENGES⚽️ Went to a great conference today run by @fifpro_official on the health challenges faced in professional football. We heard from some great speakers including the medical team from @officialqpr and from @arsenal as well as @marcovanbasten talking about talking a holistic approach to footballers health and how the decisions you make may differ from usual due to the fact that you need to take into account what may be best for the player’s career and performance and what we can do to help people when they exit the game. It’s great to hear about exciting news coming from the @iocprevconf on mental health and the @drakefoundation research into different aspects of the players overall health. It also focussed on the important aspect of what happens after an athlete retires and what our duty of care may be and how we can help them keep their health for longer. It showed us how athletes who retire and move less are at greater risk than the general population of developing calcification of their arteries in their heart and talked about what we might be able to do to reduce this risk. Great day of learning! #doctor#sportsmedicine#football#footballmedicine#pfa#premierleague#pitchside#holistichealth#performance#soccer#ilovemyjob#medical#medicine#sports#athlete
An absolute pleasure interviewing Dutch legend Marco van Basten - one of only five players to win the Ballon d'Or three times and the name I shouted every time I hit a volley on the school playground - about his incredible career, the injuries that cut it short and that legendary AC Milan team.
Matteo simple has been revelation to say the least. The 20 year is simply INSANE and we cannot get enough We just saw lacazette talking about how ambitious Guendouzi is about becoming one of the best players in the world and now he’s gone on to actually prove that by finding himself in the final short list for the 2019 Golden Boy award Congratulations to @matteoguendouzi who has been included in the final 20 man shortlist for the golden boy award 2019! 🏆🤩 You truly deserve it champ 🔴⚪️ Follow @arsedevils for daily news player and match updates about Arsenal...
"We had no objective medical data on players...Arsene Wenger said I want you to create a football university." 👨🏼🎓👩🎓⚽️ Arsenal medical chief Dr. Gary O'Driscoll has told the #drakefootballstudy launch about how the club has transformed its medical services.
Poche settimane fa abbiamo assistito tutti noi all' esordio da sogno in Europa League per Italo-brasiliano Gabriel Martinelli, siglando una doppietta in soli 3 minuti che ha consentito all' Arsenal una partita del tutto in discesa, metterà a segno successivamente anche un assist. 18 anni compiuti da poco, un classe 2001 che si ispira a CR7, dopo i tanti no ricevuti da diversi top club internazionali tra cui: Barcellona e Manchester City, l' Arsenal e Emery sono stati gli unici a puntare forte su di lui e credere nelle sue capacità balistiche sopraffine. Fidatevi di noi di questo ragazzo ne sentiremo parlare un gran bene in futuro ma intanto sta stupendo tutti nel presente. Insieme a lui nell' Arsenal ci sono tanti giovani promettenti che come lui sognano di esordire in prima squadra. Quindi quest' anno spero avrete un occhio di riguardo all' Arsenal e alla sua fenomenale squadra.
