Creativity in sport

creativity is having the ability to transcend traditional ideas and to create brand new ideas. when we consider a creative footballer it is these ideas which come to mind by them having the ability to beat players with great skills in a 1v1 situations, the vision of a pass which “no-one could see”, the scoring of a goal which seemed ‘impossible’ or even just a subtle flick or touch which shows awareness, vision and confidence. All these examples highlight what we regard as a creative player.

These are type of players we called genius and in modern time footballers today market are worth millions. He is a player which can win games, create goals and help a team succeed. according to the whitehouse address have some examples of genius footballers “Across the history of the game football has seen many genius’; Maradona, Cruyff, Best, Matthews, Zidane, Riquelme, Hagi, Pirlo, Laudrup, Iniesta, Ronaldinho and Messi.”

“Creativity entails varying, rare and flexible decision making in complex game situations.”  (Memmert & Roth 2007)

It’s not just footballers have creativity, there are many sports have creativity in them for example, Lewis Hamilton is a Formula 1 driver, his creativity is to have a good decision making to be able to overtake his opponents and not letting his tyres lose drip on the race surface and the main one to win the race.
