Soccer Science

edited by Tony Strudwick, head of performance at Manchester United Football Club

Through the years a wealth of information has been accumulated in soccer. Experiential and science-based knowledge abounds in the sport. Yet the scientific information has not been sufficiently disseminated to those who would benefit most from it.

Soccer Science fills the void with the best and most up-to-date research in the sport.

With editor Tony Strudwick and a who's-who list of international experts on the sport, Soccer Science offers you an unprecedented wealth of advanced yet accessible information on biomechanics, physiology, psychology, skill acquisition and coaching, tactical approaches and performance and match analysis. It is simply the most significant and comprehensive published work on the sport.
