Everyone always asks me why I like playing goalkeeper , and why I started and if diving hurts .
Honestly , I never saw myself as a goalkeeper . I always wanted to play center back or midfielder , but as a kid I always too big and slow for any of those positions . So one day my coach put me in as a goalkeeper because we didn’t really have one at the time , and he saw that I wasn’t afraid to dive and I guess he saw something in me for being a goalkeeper , after that I started focusing on being a goalkeeper . In the beginning I hated it , but over time I started to become more passionate about it and I started to work out and train way harder so I can become better .
Now , I love playing goalkeeper . It’s apart of who I am and what I want to become when I’m older , it has affected my life in such a big way and that’s why I love it . I always try to work my hardest because I know I can become better and better everyday .
