OWN IT! to publish ‘game-changing’ football psychology book

OWN IT! has acquired world rights to a book, Soccology, about the psychology behind football, by former professional footballer Kevin George.

The book explores the hearts and minds of football players and offers insights into the minds of footballers such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Zinedine Zidane and Wayne Rooney.

George initially developed Soccology as a human performance programme and it has been endorsed by the Premier League and clubs such as AC Milan. He self-published his book on the subject in the summer, attracting media interest from FourFourTwo magazine, GQ, the Guardian and Shortlist.                         

Publisher Jason Morgan acquired world rights in all languages and will publish on 6th December.                     

“Every so often you get a football book which transcends sports and opens up a new way of thinking, not just about the beautiful game but about life,” he said. “Through a carefully crafted blend of psychology and sports, ​Soccology​ helps the reader understand their own psycho-emotional story and unlock their true potential in sports, business or life. This book is a game changer.”
