Spin to Support

This week's exercises are from the Liverpool Youth Academy in our book, "Modern Soccer Coaching - Technical"

Combination Four

Player 2 shows for a pass from Player 1. Player 1 misses him out and passes directly to Player 3. Player 2 then spins around the outside of the mannequin to receive a pass from Player 3. Player 3 then moves into space to receive the ball back from Player 2, uses a dribbling move and then dribbles to the start. The drill starts again with Player 4 once Player 1 has moved next to the mannequin and Player 2 has moved to Player 3’s original position.

Coaching Points

  • Player 2 must look like he wants the ball from Player 1 (Shout, “Feet!”)
  • Speed and quality of Player 2’s movement
  • All previous coaching points
