{{ content.sub_title }}

I never aspired to become a teacher, I just majored in this area to learn about movement and guiding players. I graduated after a five year study and left knowing everything I needed to know about training the human body, even medically. I will never allow a player not to go for something.

Players should fight for every ball during a match. De-organization or something going wrong during a match, those are acceptable mistakes, things like that just happen. But giving up or not fighting for a ball, that is unacceptable.

Players who always fight for the team objective, deserve a spot in the squad. Hard His education makes him even more like van Gaal, but the similarity is also very No. He passionately pays attention to every single details within the order of his team.

Players who do not pay attention will not go unpunished. Arturo Vidal knows all about this. When the left wingback executed a weird move during a training session, Bielsa immediately stopped the sessions and told Vidal off: You sir, play at Bayer Leverkusen and you believe you are something else, don't you!?

But all you do is create chaos! If you wish to play for me, you will have to execute the basic tasks I demand from you.

Not the tasks that you believe are necessary. We have enough so called heroes in football! The boss Bielsa on this incident: "Communication is the most important factor for me. I need to be able to trust my players on their word. Communication is also closely linked to hierarchy. I believe a coach should have a unique aspect: he must be able to make his players feel they are not equal to him.

The coach is the boss. What is a boss, or a leader? Someone who when he enters the dressing room the murmur turns to a pause of silence. When he speaks everyone else is quite and maybe most importantly someone who when he tells a joke everyone laughs, while nobody would laugh at the same joke if someone else told it. Leadership is most visible when you lose, a good leader is able to deal with the stress that comes with a loss.

The best time to observe this is during stressful situations. Whether I am a leader? When I am asked to speak at a guest lecture the title of my presentation is usually: leadership, norms and values. Bielsa was able to renew Chile with his approach. Like van Gaal he has the courage to select young talents. And with result! Never before were Chilean players sold to European top clubs for great amounts, as during the Bielsa era. We have found this more suitable at the U8s and U9s level.

Age Group U8s to adults Pitch Size 40 x 20 or at the discretion of the coach, but basically a standard 4 v 4 pitch, with a half way line marking. If a team wins the ball in the oppositions half and then goes on to score before the ball has left that half, they are awarded two goals.

A goal scored any other way counts as just one goal. Very popular with the players and evokes good team spirit. The attacking team need to work as a unit and both press and close down defenders. Age Group U12s to adults Pitch sizes 50 x 20 or at the discretion of the coach a zone of about 10 metres from each goal should be marked out with a line or marker cones Number of teams 2 Team sizes players including keepers Bibs optional Goals mini soccer goals for children and full size goals for older kids and adults.

The game is a standard small sided game but with a zone in front of each goal.

In this zone are the keeper and an opposition forward sniffer. Players can only shoot outside of this zone and can use the sniffer to set up play. The sniffer however is not aloud to shoot at goal unless it is a rebound off of the keeper, goal post or bar. There are no goal kicks or corners and the keeper can only throw the ball out.

This is great shooting practice at distance. It is also good to work on setting up shots and reacting to rebounds. The game is also an excellent workout for keepers as they have to be alert and on their toes, should they spill the ball or the ball rebounds from the post or bar to the sniffer. It is a good idea to have a plentiful supply of ball in each goal to keep the game moving. Age Group U15s to adults Pitch sizes 40 x 20 or at the discretion of the coach Number of teams 2 Team sizes players Bibs optional Goals 5 a side or mini soccer goals.

The coach has a number of balls and stands on the side of the pitch. He starts the game by throwing or drop kicking the ball onto the pitch so that players have to challenge in the air to win the ball. The two main issues are winning the aerial challenge and reacting to the knock down or 2nd ball. Every time the ball goes out of play whether for a throw in, goal kick or corner, the coach starts proceedings again. Play for a set time or until the balls have all been used and then free play for 5 minutes.

It is a good game to help players become more confident at challenging for high balls. Age Group U8s to adults Pitch Size 20 x 40 or at the discretion of the coach, but basically a standard 4 v 4 pitch, this can however be played in either portrait or landscape format.

Number of teams 2 Team sizes players Bibs optional Either a line across the pitch or cones at the side indicating an end line. The main difference with this game is that there are no goals as such.

The players score by running with the ball over the opponents end line and put their foot on the ball. For the older children and adults you can also stipulate that they have to do a trick such as a Maradona turn as they go over the line. The game brings out many skills such as running with the ball, beating players, passing short and long as well as switching play.

It is also a good game for decision making. Setup 12 cones on the middle circle Players line up, each with a ball Duration: Players dribble around the cones Next player start when player in front of him reaches the fourth cones. Pitch size: Team in possession must pass the ball around to players in their own zone A before they can pass to their teammates in the other zone B When the ball is passed to zone B one of the defenders from zone A moves to zone B to create another 3v2 situation.

Team in possession passes the ball around, while the defending team tries to steal it Players are not allowed to enter the red zone Ball may be passed across the red zone to a player on the other side. A passes to B A runs jumping over the hurdles and takes position around the penalty spot At the same time B receives the ball dribble through the cones to the endline and crosses the ball into the penalty area A finishes on goal B retrieves the ball A joins the back of the B queue B joins the back of the A queue.

Add 1 defender in the penalty area Add 2 defenders, 1 in the penalty area, 1 near the endline. A dribbles towards defender 1 and passes to B A runs passed the defender and receives the ball back from B A dribbles around cone 1 towards defender 2, passes to C, runs passes defender 2 and receives the ball back from C A dribble towards and through the cones to the edge of the penalty area and finishes on goal.

Two rows of players are position just outside the penalty area, with a neutral goalkeeper on goal you may also opt to use 2 goalkeepers, 1 from each team The coach plays 2 balls to the same player. The ball must be shot on goal immediately If one of the two balls is scored the player will join the back of the line If the player doesn't score he is out of the game When the players scores both balls he wins back a player from his own team or he may dare a player from the other team to score 2 balls.

If this player doesn't score both balls he is out. If he does score both balls the player who dared him is out The team who has no players left looses.

Half a field Play in groups of 3 players 2 of the 3 players are positioned in the middle circle. The third player is position in one of the two corner areas One of the players lobs the ball from the middle circle to the player in the corner area. If the ball does not reach the area, they lose their turn.

If the ball reaches the area the player must pass the ball, with two touches ball must remain in motion , to one of the two players These players may only start after the ball has been passed The following scores apply: Half a field Play with 2 teams with a neutral goalkeeper on goal you may also opt to use 2 goalkeepers, 1 from each team The balls are all positioned on the edge of the penalty area. The red team has 2 minutes to shoot on goal one player at the time When the ball is over or next to the goal, the entire red team must sprint around the first cone before they may continue When another player misses the goal, the sprint around the second cone, etc.

After two minutes the yellow team starts The team with the most goals scored wins. The complete online soccer coaching experience for your club!

Proactive behavior, leadership and constant communication The Atletico-MG youth academy is regarded as one of the best in the country. They are praised for their integrated working method with the department of professional football, especially with regard to educating youth players and preparing them for the first team. The academy is known for their cooperation with the other members of the club's technical committees. Specialist in sports training and a post-graduate in Business Administration and Marketing, Wladimir Braga is responsible for the physical preparation of the under team.

He has the duty to design physical training exercises in combination with tactical elements that correspond to the team's system of play. This is especially important with the U17 age group, as they are at a critical age when it comes to high performance sport. Braga has been working at the club for nearly a decade and ensures that coaches have the ability and motivation to stimulate and encourage the players. They should be proactive when it comes to solving the game's strategic variations.

Leadership and constant communication play in vital role in achieving this. I believe this to be the most important aspect in the work environment of a big club. And we have access to all evaluations and equipment used by professional category, with results in our youth players being constantly observed by physiologists. Having said this, I do want to point out that this doesn't mean the other youth age groups aren't important.

The U17s are, however, the first youth age group that is capable of training with the first team. It is therefore crucial that they are ready to withstand the pace of play that comes with the first team, coordination and strength wise. Thus, I believe that in order to develop youth training a hypertrophy in weight as well as work power traction allows the player to increase his strength and ability to improve cyclic and acyclic speed, and to withstand the constant shock of game and eventually prevent muscle injuries.

We, as a club monitor these criteria and develop the physical and psychological components while they are here. More than numerical values of rating the players on the above mentioned criteria which are also relevant , we believe in the relationship between the components to design the player's profile. Integration between departments "There is a deep understanding of the relationship between the youth and professional departments when it comes to the attention paid to the development of players, the workload they are submitted to,.

Pre-season preparation in Brazil. How do you change this? I think by merely changing our playing schedule to the European format we will be able to solve this problem for the most part. Soccer is a tactical sport and should be understood as such. The fitness function is to assist in training and. Therefore, physical trainers must adjust their work according to the demands of football, then the coach and then the system of play, and not vice versa. At no time should we deny the importance of understanding the physical potential of a player in the process of preparing him for the first team.

Youth planning "In the youth department it is usually easier to plan the training content by means of a year plan for each age group. This may sound like something long term, as some mistakenly think, but it does also brings immediate results. The planning of training content in the youth categories allows professionals to gradually apply the tactical, technical and physical aspects that are fundamental in developing a player's competitive profile.

Good predisposition for work Easily recovers between training sessions and games Physically fit and not prone to injury; muscular, joint or shock Has tactical intelligence Will not lose focus on the goals and objectives Believes in team play Has the emotional, cognitive, and physical techniques to overcome adversity. A player needs experience in situations of making decision with pressure coupled with the knowledge of the various systems of play, but in order to effective apply this knowledge players need to master passing.

Furthermore, players need a broad knowledge of the concept of systems and the functions within each system, including the specific characteristics of their positions.

These components, both in practice and theory, can provide the player with the opportunity to understand the game and its competitive reality. This in turn allows players to develop their decision-making capabilities on the field. In time, they should be able act immediately on changes that the game presents.

So to make the plan a reality, every coach within the club assumes the responsibility to discuss, explain and provide the tools that players need in order to make decisions on the field. I believe that by clearly defining our learning objectives and allowing players to express their doubts and difficulties you can establish a confident relationship between the player.

When an understanding of the game and the system, along with its principles and sub principles, is established the player will be able to make effective decisions on the field. Technical method and integrated training model "Fear of the unknown is part of human nature. When it comes to technical training methods we are faced some big obstacles in Brazil. Unfortunately in our country, people do not respect good work and development, they only thing that counts are the results and by results I mean titles.

The Brazilian football school is very conservative and still hides behind a five time world championship achieved, but it is in need of new knowledge and methodologies.

Which is due to the traditional and fragmented model in which we see football. Although we are faced with many barriers, there are some changes taking places. But even with the next generation of coaches, who are highly competent professionals, we wont see someone developing this kind of work nationwide.

Heading is a not to be underestimated weapon Olimpia is one of the biggest club in Paraguay and has an excellent youth academy. The academy supplies youth talent for the first on a regular basis.

The biggest talents generally make their debut in the European competition within a year of being discovered. Youth coach Luis Acosta of the U14 team explains one of the keys for the success of Paraguay's biggest academy: Paraguayans distinguish themselves with their heading power.

Heading and Paraguay are synonymous. Striker Roque Santa Cruz Manchester City, former Bayern Munich and educated by Olimpia is viewed as one of the best headers in the world, but there isn't a Paraguayan player who can't head.

In Paraguay all academies pay a lot of attention to heading, especially in my age group, the U14s. In this age groups players already master the ball, so you can start to work on the fine-tuning, says Luis Acosta.

Youth plan Contrary to most youtrh academies in Paraguay, Olimpia works with a structured hyouth plan. Every day of the year, for every age group has been worked out. I enter the. Winning We are different from most other Paraguayan club, but also from most South American clubs when it comes to winning. We are focused on educating, not on match results. Other clubs focus on winning, even with the U14s. Ball Acosta's team trains four times a week. We do everything with the ball, even the physical training sessions.

We integrate aerobic exercise with tactical and technical exercises. This is done by our physical trainer. For me as a coach most attention is. Heading can really be developed into a weapon, when you can master it. A lot of coaches and players underestimate this. Heading is much more than touch the ball with your head, just like there is a fine technique for shooting the ball.

Offense Take offensive heading for example. We train this repeatedly. First without an opponent, then with an opponent see exercises 2 and 3. Usually we do this in the same session. The reason we start without an opponent is so the players can master the technique first.

When you immediately include an opponent, a player will deal with this opponent using the skills he already knows and masters. But a youth player should learn to do things he hasn't mastered yet or improve the skills he has partly mastered.

This works more effectively when you start without an opponent. Jumping An important aspect of heading is the jump.

Players usually use their strong leg to jump. Paraguayans have to be able to jump with both legs. We start with this in the warm-up see exercise 1. This way players will learn to head better when, for example the are jumping backwards. The posture of the back is another important aspect. Heading comes youre your back,. If you are more interested in placement, then the power, very little, comes more from your head and neck.

In our age group it is important that players learn to diagonally approach the ball and look at the goal and the ball when heading offensively. A lot of players at this age close their eyes when heading the ball. We gradually progress this and eventually reach exercise 4. This includes a cross from an upcoming wingback and the forwards have to score with the head, while being defended.

This simulates a real match situation when it comes to heading technique. Defensive Defensive heading asks for a different technique than offensive heading.

With defensive heading you jump with both legs at the same time from stance or while walking backwards. We also pay a lot of attention to this is our training sessions see exercise 5.


Usually we do this in combination with tactical exercises, such as shifting and sagging. You clearly see this when you watch the Paraguay national team. They are deadly when it comes to heading. Their heading technique is phenomenal, because of the attention paid to this aspect in their academies. On top of the education, most Paraguayan players can jump very high.

Logical, their muscles have been trained for this from an early age. They must interchangeably jump with left, right and both legs. The ball is passed from the side to the player in the corner This player receives the ball and crosses into the two incoming strikers These players head to ball on goal, without resistance from a defender Players stay in their positions. The ball is passed from the side to the player in the corner This player receives the ball and crosses into the two incoming strikers These players head to ball on goal, with resistance from a defender.

On half a playing field the shadow striker receives the ball, interchangeably from the left and the right side play 1: The half winger or wingback runs along the flank to the corner flag and receives the ball back He crosses into the penalty area Two defenders try to prevend the attackers by heading the ball away.

But that will not occur on the short term. He trained with us once and got another 30 days without training". Because of this lack, Scolari is looking for reinforcements from smaller clubs. In addition, the former coach of the Brazilian and Portuguese national teams has even admitted that he may resort to scouting foreign players.

The initiative is part of a franchising program that Argentines began to develop about a year ago, which already has seven other units throughout the American continent. The development of the education program will be followed with monthly evaluations and periodic visits from Boca Juniors to the board of each unit.

The team will have special attention to teachers and mentors of children to standardize the work globally. The focus of the project in the neighboring country is to spread the image of the team xeneize.

Boca Juniors school director Andrs Lillini was excited about the schools opening in Brazil. It is a great moment for Boca Juniors. Our mission is to help support this club with the resources as well as with the ideology behind the club, said Lillini. Mano Menezes always made it clear he would like to have a professional responsible for coordinating the youth categories of Brazilian national team. The choice for the position was revealed: Ney Franco, former coach of Coritiba.

After completing his coaching license he began to coach the U15 team of Atletico Mineiro, a function he held to After that, he received the invitation to work as coach of the Cruzeiro Youth team. In nearly a decade at the club, Ney went through all the categories of the youth academy, winning national and international state titles. In the final stretch of the Brazilian Championship in , he was invited to direct the professional team.

In , Cruzeiro established a partnership with Ipatinga Futebol Clube, enabling Ney Franco his first big break in professional football. The clubs need to understand that releasing a player for the U20 team is not prejudice. Its the opposite. It will only enhance the player. We wanted a coach with the necessary experience and ability to deal with players who are already competing at this top level in their age group, explained Mano, chief coach of Brazils professional team.

Mano used to favor tactical positioning, but Adilson gives us the freedom to play", said the player. With the departure of Menezes, who has left to take charge of the Brazilian national team, the new commander, Batista, immediately began making some changes to the Corinthians playing style. The defensive midfielder Elias, for example, now has more freedom to attack and has.

Elias said that the speed in which the team play has made a big difference, both for the team as a whole as well as for his own development. Besides applying pressure on the opponent as soon as possible, players seek to take advantage of the gaps in opponent's defense by faster response.

Adilson trains to ensure that midfielders and strikers quickly build and finish their attacks. In certain activities the coach actually times how long it takes for the team to reach the opponent's goal. The Brazilian corner is a contribution from Universidade do Futebol www.

Whenever we hear of Alex Ferguson, one of footballs all time great managers, its mostly in the context of his accomplishments, the silver ware he has won and of course the huge amount of pleasure his teams have given so many people in so many places over the years. Its almost impossible to speak of anything else, as his success in the game is that immense.

But, there's a side to this great manager that not everyone sees or hears about. There are parts of his story that are overshadowed by the success. Experiences that hes gone through, that most others on the same path have gone through but have slowly faded out of the picture and out of the profession.

And the reason were fortunate enough to be able to read and learn from him, is that he was. We dont hear about the others as they didnt last. They lacked mental toughness and they lacked perseverance. And it could be said that a lot of these tough experiences played such a large role in the shaping of such a great manager. He had come from the shipyards of Govan and he wasnt going back there without a fight. And fight he did - with anyone, any authority, anything that stood between him and success.

Andy Melvin, former Aberdeen journalist. Perseverance Sir Alex became manager of Aberdeen in after being sacked by St Mirren, only his second job as a young manager. And shortly after joining his new club, an industrial tribunal hung over his head and publicly labeled him, what now seems to be the most ludicrous statement in the history of the game; they deemed his as possessing neither by experience nor talent, any managerial ability at all.

Say no. It goes to show how very dangerous opinions can be, especially if not questioned and ignorance takes over. Thank goodness Sir Alex took absolutely no notice - another quality that has served him so well.

To look back at this situation from where we are now is very easy, but it cant have been that easy for a young manager, unproven, having just been fired and now walking in to a brand new, very large managerial position. Alex Ferguson, And it didnt get too much easier.

His first season of trying to bed in his own philosophy, and get this crop of extremely talented young Scottish players to do things his way; was not as plain sailing as history may suggest - from all the triumphs that we see in the record books. It was a shattering experience, he later confessed.


For the first time in my life I couldnt wait for the season to end. The players resented the way I wanted to change certain ideas. They were suspicious of my intentions. By his own account, he had a troubled time at the start of his Aberdeen managerial career. Even the players noticed a sense of unease and uncertainty in there new manager, he came fairly quiet among us at first.

It seems at times some of our older lads were trying to run the training sessions, dictating how the free kicks should be taken and so on. And during such a tough beginning to his time at Aberdeen, the results didnt go in his favor either.

What he did at Aberdeen was almost miraculous. Sacrifice Sacrifice is another quality that is so evident and strong in his life, especially as a young manager. He had and still has an appetite for the game that is so intense in quality. And sacrifice is a word not just for Sir Alex but also it seems for the Ferguson family, who over the years have had to adjust, cope and really manage being the family of one of the games top men.

Back in Scotland, at St Mirren his second role as manager , he used to be the first one in, and hed still be there until eight or nine, said Harold Currie, his chairman. Even on the training field, Bob McCulley recalls, Time didnt matter to him, he never wore a watch.

If he wanted something done, hed stay as late as it took, or come in early. And Fergusons dedication is all the more remarkable given he was working part time and still running his pub, Fergies. I had that burning desire to change the world he stated. Day or night hed be totally running St Mirren.

And with that attitude, all the players and all the people at the club could see that example to follow, and this is where you get the leadership. He was building a club, not just a team. Said former captain Tony Fitzpatrick. Ferguson speaks of his early days and how he and his assistant would never go a week without going to watch at least one game to look at players, to keep up and stay ahead of everyone else.

If they missed one game, then they knew theyd miss another, then another, and eventually theyd stop going a thought too devastating to even contemplate. My assistant and I would drive six hours to watch one and a half hours football, and then be up for training in the morning. There wasnt time for anything else. Ferguson remembers. He was so wound up. Hed come in and kick the half-time tea tray all over the place because we werent playing. Centre forward, Jim Meakin Mind games and high standards Ferguson has a reputation of having the ability to be extremely volatile and I dont think there are too many people that would.

It seems that his early years were a little more colorful than they are now and the way in which he got players to respond, some may say, was either extremely clever or just straightforward and ruthless.

Regardless of what we perceive; one things for sure, it was entirely motivated by a burning desire to win and be successful and it worked. Coaches and managers have different styles and ways of motivating there players.

And its fantastic to hear some of Fergusons comments and beliefs, as it gives you a very strong idea of how he operated and where he came from, theres only way for me or anybody associated with me, and thats winning. Im not in this game to be a middle of the road manager, or a nearly manager. Im in it to win everything. And the players are bred that way. And breed players he did. Now thousands of books have been written on subjects such as psychology and mind games.

Many people talk about it, but very few have lived it. And very few have been brave enough to try new things, apply them and come out truly successful, in the face of such consistent adversity.

I think mind games is an appropriate term for how Fergie dealt maybe still deals with his players, or should I say, played with them. He kept them on their. Others loved him and wanted to fight and play for him. And then there was the players that loathed him and wanted to prove him wrong. He cleverly exploited there personalities for the benefit of performing to there maximum for his team.

He tested and probed and found out who he could count on, to stand up to the real big challenges of being successful against the very best in the world. Fergie put the fear of death in players, said Gordon Stracham and used it as motivation.

But if you werent the victim, he might give you a crafty wink as he left the dressing room. And as surprising as Fergies confession on lacking confidence, especially with team talks, is how its been recalled that he used to plan and premeditate the famous hair dryer treatment. Ferguson often thought carefully about what affect he wanted his words to have on his players. On one occasion he was found rehearsing one of his outburst in advance, enquiring of a listener, Does that sound ok?

Results speak for themselves, and he certainly got the desired response from his players. He motivated every player in a different way, Willie Miller once said. Some hed leave alone, some hed make play by making them dislike him. And he set such high standards for himself and his players, which give us a magnificent insight into a completely different standard that most people hold themselves and there players to.

I thought wed played well, but he felt our passing was awful and he let us know it. I was silly enough to say, what the f ck are you looking for? We won Are you not happy? He came over and gave me a Fergie special. He told me in no uncertain terms that he was the manager and it was his standards that counted.

It makes you look at it. Even though you won , theres still room for improvement. Tony Fitzpatrick, St Mirren captain. What I love about Ferguson, about his story and his approach, is the fact as a coach you can hear this and learn so very much. And at the age of 68, his appetite for the game only seems to have got bigger! Coaching lessons: We start with the simplest form, the 2v2.
