Dr Michael Merzenich introduces
Mentored Brain Training for football
Every decision, we make and every action we take, comes from our brain. Footballing Brains delivers significant marginal gains and a competitive edge by training the brain with the support of a trained mentor.
BRAIN TRAINING = PERFORMANCE + MENTAL HEALTH
The Footballing Brains programme involves a unique approach that maximises the impact of MENTORED BRAIN TRAINING for elite players, coaches and match officials of all ages.
“Football is a brain game, where to run, when to run, when to cover, when to press, when to move, how to move, it is decisions like these that come from the brain that determines whether you’re a good player or not.
“There are so many players in football with great talent, but their actual understanding of the game is poor, and that’s the difference between good and great. It’s getting the decisions right which is key to football.”
"Training the brain is football's next frontier…footballers have almost reached the peak of their physical capabilities and that improving decision-making will be the next frontier for the sport."
"Making the right decision in the right moment, that is the most difficult thing in football. Do the simple things, the simple things."
“I had the talent for the fifth division, and the mind for the Bundesliga.”
