The 5-Minute Football Coach #107
Match-like rondo, Runs behind, Coach the players
I hope you’re well! Here are your coaching tips for this week:
⚽️ Practice of the week
First, a rondo mimicking a proper team shape with a defender and wide players. Maybe add small goals for the opponents to score into when they win possession?
🥅 Game of the week
Next, a game with a twist to encourage runs behind defenders and precise passing
Working on runs in behind?⚽️ • Can't move into the final 1/3 until the ball is there • Timing of movements in behind • Disguise your intentions to trick the defender Watch the animation below⬇️📝 @TacticalPad @CoachingFamily @Smedley033 @RussellPope99 @coachingdrills8
💡 Topic of the week
Lastly, and maybe not the best of timing (!), but some interesting advice from Justin Cochrane of Manchester United: coach the players, not the session.
I hope you enjoyed this. Until next time!
