Sažetak
Team position is of extreme imporance in interpretation of morphological data because there are specific demands for a specific play position. The aim of the study was the analysis of morphological characteristics and body composition of elite Croatian soccer players with respect to their team position. The measurements were performed on 57 players, members of the First Croatian National League. The anthropometrical measurements encompassed 13 variables. Descriptive statistics, t-test and MANOVA were used in data processing. The goalkeepers were the tallest and heaviest (182.9+4.3 cm ; 80.1+5.1 kg), and had significantly higher amounts of body fat (20.2% goalkeepers vs. 13-15% others ; p<0.05), whereas the forwards and the midfield players were on the average about 3cm shorter. The goalkeepers had longer legs and arms (p<0.05), and the largest biacromial diameter (43.2+1.9 cm). The forwards were the shortest on the average (179.2+6.3 cm).The lowest values of fat tissue were found in defenders (13.9%) and midfield players (14.4%). In conclusion, the differences in morphological characteristics accordint to the team position were noticed opnly in goalkeepers, especially regarding their height, weight and percentage of fat tissue.
