Mourinho Chelsea Drill 9


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


The playing area is split into 4 grids, with a 1v1 in each of them. 2 neutral players can join the 1v1 to make a 3v1 and at least 5 passes has to be made, after 5 passes the ball gets transferred to a different grid where the player must protect the ball until the 2 neutrals join him.

An example of Mourinho performing this drill can bee seen on exercise 3 of the video Football For Kids.

Key Factors:

  • Protecting/Shielding the ball
  • Strength on the ball
  • Creating angles/options
  • Quality passing & possession
