In England, the homeland of football, losing a game is almost like a tragedy, especially in the first leagues, both for supporters and players. When their team loses, it’s the end of the world, especially since the next match seems so far away. Therefore, how do professional footballers console themselves after a lost match? You’ll find out by reading this article further! Some activities that we’ll list might seem surprising to you, while others are predictable & you could’ve thought of them easily too:
- A meal at the restaurant, with the whole team.
First of all, to close ranks, the whole team, including the manager & sometimes even the owner, could go out to a restaurant, both to eat, but especially to socialize in an informal setting. This quality time spent together will most certainly help them raise their morale & get better results in the future. Most often, this tactic has the intended results, with far fewer “casualties” than sacking the manager, for example;
- Regular visits to the gym & more intense training.
Another approach is for the footballer to hit the gym for more intense training, as well as train even better on the pitch, with or without the ball. Logically, this should help him be in top shape for the next game, which will also translate into better results. In football, there is a saying that the value of a player or a manager is given by their last result. Of course, nobody wants to be considered a loser, both literally and figuratively, which is why they try to recover quickly after a defeat. Furthermore, if they give everything both in training and on the field, no one can blame them for anything;
- Playing FIFA & spending quality time at home.
The totally opposite approach is to take the defeat lightheartedly and make the most of your free day. In this case, footballers simply stay home, either alone or with their family & friends, play FIFA, eat, watch TV, and do all sorts of different activities they would normally do, regardless of their profession or latest results. Surprisingly or not, this might also prove an efficient approach since it will help the footballer relax & free his mind, focusing on the next game at the right time, not before, thus putting additional pressure;
- Going out with Birmingham escorts to release the tension.
Last but not least, if the footballer is from Birmingham, playing either for Aston Villa or Birmingham City FC, one of the best ways to console themselves after a lost match is in the company of a gorgeous woman, who will make him forget about anything else except her. More precisely, we’re talking about a companion to join him either for a date at an exquisite restaurant, or a whole night of passion at a luxury hotel. Besides releasing the tension, this activity will restore the footballer’s self-esteem & he’ll start to consider himself an attractive man with a lot of money again, despite the morale “shaken” by the last defeat.
