From the publisher:
Does football care about developing the person as much as the player? Speaking to coaches, psychologists and teachers around the world, Soul investigates the ways in which being an athlete doesn’t mean giving up on personal development. Aided by insights from other sports, Soul is both a practical guide and a collection of stories that shows just how important it is to look beyond the athlete. From the real cost of being in football to the unhealthy playing field that currently exists, Soul doesn’t hold back in revealing its ultimate message: that the game needs to care more about people.
