Is fatigue an excuse for non-performance or a legitimate concern for players?
Fatigue and recovery. Two words heard quite often in the world of football.
But are these just words used to provide an excuse after a bad game or is there more to this?
It’s been said that that footballers don’t work as hard as everyone else so how can they get tired?
The answer is that fatigue is not related to the number of hours in the day spent at work, but rather to the workload imposed on the body.
