Author(s): Rudranath Chatterjee and Dr. Kanchan Bandopadhyay
The purpose of the study was to find out and compare of selected physiological profile of football players in relation to playing position. A total number of 319 male positional football players classified into four groups, were selected as subjects from different football coaching camp of Kolkata suburban area. Selected physiological profile included pre-exercise heart rate, peak expiratory flow rate and VO2 max (predicted) were measured by standard procedures. For analysis of data, SPSS software was used. One-way ANOVA and Post hoc compare of means was used to find out the significant difference among the groups as well as to observe which group was different from the other groups. The result showed that significant difference in mean was found in resting heart rate, peak expiratory flow rate and vo2 max (predicted) among the positional groups. Result also found that goalkeeper was higher value in pre-exercise heart rate and peak expiratory flow rate but inferior in vo2 max in comparison to the other groups. On the other hand, midfielder was superior in vo2 max than that the others groups. The physiological profile of footballers in respect of playing position play significant role in game performance.
