First touch, 2-on-2 game, Bielsa’s formations
I hope you’re all well and enjoying the summer!
At last the new season is just around the corner, and here are your tips for this week:
⚽️ Drill of the week
First, a 1-1 drill to work on taking a first touch beyond the defender:
🥅 Practice of the week
Next, a nice 2-on-2 game for younger players, with lots of dribbling and goals:
This small-sided game gets your players working in pairs to defend their goal and score high up the pitch 🧑🤝🧑⚽ It encourages communication, combinations, dribbling, passing and intercepting ✅ Give it a go! @SundayShare10 | #SundayShare
💡 Idea of the week
Lastly, nice to see Marcielo Bielsa’s 10 formations. Have you already decided on your team’s formation for the new season? And are you planning to coach your team more than one?
With lots of coaches working through their preseason, for this #SundayShare, I give you more Bielsa. At his 2016 presentation, he talked about how during his preseasons, he teaches his teams 10 formations. 5 with 4 defenders, 5 with 3 defenders. @SundayShare10
Hope you enjoyed this - until next time!
