One of the biggest issues for young Goalkeepers is worrying about if they are going to grow tall enough to make it as a professional. From speaking to scouts and coaches about what they look for in a goalkeeper we have already heard that as much as we may try to dismiss it and talk about talent there is a massive advantage to being a taller goalkeeper and if you look around the top clubs today you are hard pushed to find more than 1 or 2 goalkeepers at 6ft or less with the norm being around 6ft 3 and above nowadays.
With this in mind we have decided to get your feedback on just how tall you think you need to be to become a Professional Goalkeeper… to keep things simple we will assume we are talking about adult male goalkeepers for this poll (We will do something for the female goalkeepers soon I promise!)
So vote with your mice and once the poll is finished we will get a few professional coaches opinions on the matter and see if they are in agreement with your votes!
Please leave your opinions and comments below as to why you think this is the required height to be a professional goalkeeper.
