The work of professional football : a labour of love ?

Roderick, M. J. (2006) 'The work of professional football : a labour of love ?', London: Routledge.

Abstract

A long-term study providing rare insights into the precarious career and ordinary working culture of professional footballers. Away from the celebrity-obsessed media gaze, the work of a professional footballer is rarely glamorous and for most players a career in football is insecure and short-lived.
