A goalkeeper’s position on the field is the best position to help the team, both defensively and offensively. The goalkeeper can provide great help to his teammates by giving instructions and information about what is happening during the game.
An outfield player is located in the area where the ball is concentrated, so his field of vision is much more limited and makes it much more difficult for him to have the necessary information to make the right decision. This is where communication comes into play, and the goalkeeper is the only player in the whole team who has the possibility of seeing the whole perspective of the game.
A goalkeeper must be in constant communication with his teammates. It doesn’t matter if the ball is in zone 1, 2 or 3, or if the team is defending or attacking. The information the goalkeeper can provide to the team can be decisive in decision making and even in setting the pace of play for his own team.
From a very young age, goalkeepers must get used to communicating throughout the game. Thus, when a goalkeeper reaches the youth stage, he already associates the game with constant communication. This is one of the qualities that every professional goalkeeper must have: COMMUNICATION.
