Football talent pool is bigger, however 11x more players are needed.
Lol that actually seems spot on.Messi/Ronaldo level is, along with the likes of Maradona and Pele, the best level of football ever played - not bloody likely he would've been that good.
Quick, explosive runner. Good foot-eye coordination, evidently. Apparently scored a tonne at junior level.
Now, I played with someone like that who went on to play pro (I never thought he was that difficult to defend against in training...) and he topped out at the 3rd tier of English football, though he was all of 5'7" fully grown and a lazy sod who only came to life when he was in scoring range.
The "read how someone's going to play as they walk onto the pitch" test suggests to me he would've been a bit of a head down and charge kinda player, probably not a great passer nor likely to score many goals from distance and probably did not like it up him (i.e. would not have relished playing a dirty so-and-so such as Sergio Ramos) but he would've been a Mr "Take your eyes off him for half a second and he's found space and scored a goal" type and I would assume a very hard worker who might've been best playing in midfield than what was apparently his chosen/given role as a child playing as an attacker.
Top flight player, I would expect.
Actually he'd have more time, since it's a team sport and most of the time you do not have the ballI know you were joking but you pointed out something interesting. Nadal wouldn't have had the time to perform his OCD rituals, maybe that would have been a problem. He needs to do things at his own pace, which wouldn't have been possible in
Rafa's father & uncles were very handsome when they were young (pictured from left to right): Miguel Angel Nadal, Toni Nadal, Marilen Nadal (Miguel's twin sister), Sebastian Nadal (Rafa's father) and Rafael Nadal:Lol I had no idea. Very cool. I always thought Toni was a very handsome man too.
He has a lot of OCD rituals, even when he doesn’t have the ball. And you can’t do things at your own pace in a team sport.A good guess is imo he should be an A league player. According to his own opinion, he wasn't as good at football as he was at tennis (just "normal" good), hence why he chose tennis. I think, similar to Murray, he also disliked his current coach then.
Lol that actually seems spot on.
