They sometimes say that football is a stupid game. That it’s 22 men who run after a ball and then kick it away again. But football is much more than that. It is a passion, it is a lifestyle. Something your whole life revolves around. The first 4 years of Zyan Desoete’s football career were not as a goalkeeper or, as you may have read, as a striker. Strange but often it is the case that goalkeepers started or have as their favourite other position “striker”. For Zyan himself, his career started as a defender, but he always liked to be in between the posts. One day they asked him to play goalkeeper and the love was immediately there. So much fun, the saves, getting dirty (less for the mum) and so much more and he has never lost that feeling until today.
