I sort of agree. Elite soccer players are not bulky guys (for the simple reason that it is so incredibly hard to keep that kind of size from all that running).
That being said, I don't think you need to focus much on shredding, per se. I think with whatever running and conditioning you end up doing, it's just going to happen for you. It sounds like you may have put on some extra weight while you were recupertating from your injury? Maybe?
I would just focus on a solid lifting program on here (maybe Westside for Skinny Bastards II by Joe DeFranco) and as far as supplements go, I would think Surge would be good for you to take after lifting or any soccer training sessions, since recuperation seems to be key for you.
I'm also a soccer player, although [i]no where near[/i] your level. Strictly recreational, but I find the Surge helps quite a bit. More than anything else, just figure out a way that you are not doing legs on the day before your games. lol
