  • Waterstones Retired

    Price: £9.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Almost half of professional footballers face the threat of bankruptcy within five years of their retirement. A third will be divorced less than a year after hanging up their boots. With little or no support from the game to which they gave their lives, many end up addicted, depressed, living with debilitating illnesses, behind bars or even worse. While an elite few may be financially secure, or others may land plum managerial jobs or punditry roles, it transpires that for the majority retirement is something they're not prepared for and lives can spiral into a rapid and depressing decline. Retired is the ultimate 'where are they now?' and asks what actually happens to most footballers once they hang up their boots? How do players cope with going from heroes to zeroes in such a short space of time? And what can be done to help with their transition to normal life?.

    Description: Kicking On! How Footballers Win the Post-Retirement Game of Life takes an upbeat look at players who have retired from the game to forge successful, positive and interesting second careers. Retirement can be a traumatic time of life - particularly if you're in your mid-30s and football's all you've ever known. Many retired players struggle to cope with that pivotal moment when they have to leave the game for good. There's a heartbreaking trail of tales of those whose post-footballing lives have been sad or even tragic. But this book looks at the other side of the coin - the players who have flourished after hanging up their boots. Whether it's setting up charities, helping others cope with the challenges of life, creating multi-million-pound businesses, going into the media, politics, or back into football itself, there are more than 200 former players here with inspiring feel-good stories to share. Kicking On! is solid proof that a successful footballing career can be just the first chapter in a fulfilling life.
