Mourinho Drill 33

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

Rules / Objectives:

Coach to Improve Defensive & Offensive Transition play. The playing area is split into 2 halves with 3v2 in each half. The 3 attackers aim to score against the 2 defenders, when they score all 3 players must quickly retreat to the centre circle as shown. Now the 2 players that were originally defending have to get the ball into their 3 attacking players in the opposite half who must score against the 2 defenders.

Key Factors:

  • Quick retreat & re-organisation
  • Understanding of roles in transition period


Watch the Chelsea Youth Team perform this transition drill.
