Taken from a pdf of 39 drills used by Mourinho while in his first stint as Chelsea manager

Rules/Objectives:

To integrate passing in relation to the positional play of the 4-3-3 system.

  1. x1 passes to x2 who turns and passes to x3, x3 then dribbles back to start position. (Alternate sides)
  2. x1 passes to x2 who sets for x1 to play long into x3. x3 then plays a 1-2 with x2 and then dribbles back to the start.

Key Factors:

  • Speed of pass
  • Direction of pass
  • Angle of pass
  • Face to face
  • Timing of run
  • 1st touch/control

Note: version 1 of this drill is identical to the Y drill used at Ajax. Watch the Chelsea U18 Youth Team perform this drill.
