What makes good footballers?

Is it the coach, the player, the training – or everything?

Good football players born in 1991 will be studied for ten years by NTNU researchers and the Norwegian Football Association. The goal is to determine the characteristics of football talent over time.

The researchers will look at what the players did from 13 to 15 years of age, the relationship
they had with their coach, the player’s training methodology and development, the player’s view of himself and the difference between playing in Norway and abroad.
