Mourinho Drill 25

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

Rules/Objectives:

Link up play to include space-making & switching of play.

Server (S) plays longer pass to X1 (who moves away to show), X1 performs space making skill and plays a short give & go with X3. X1 now looks up and plays a deep give and go with X2. X1 plays back into server, X1 & X2 rotate. Repeat other side X3 & X4.

An example of Mourinho performing this drill can bee seen on exercise 1 of the video Football For Kids.

Key Factors:

  • Weight, accuracy & control of passes
  • Variation of space making skills
  • Ability to play 1-2’s with inside & outside of both feet.
  • Rotation of players
