Turning -

10 players (in pairs), cone either side with gate in the middle (20 - 30 yds across)

1 player per pair at position 1, their partner at position 2.

Player 1 passes to Player 2 and follows his pass (slow jog) to position 2.

At the same time Player 2 receives the pass and performs a turn before dribbling to position 3.

At position 3 they will perform another turn and play to partner at position 2

Repeat in the opposite direction with players having 2 turns per repetition

Key Points -

Identify the type of turn to perform (inside of foot, outside, sole, Cruyff)

Arms out for balance, knees bent

Change direction at pace - to surprise your opponent

Turning under pressure -

30x20 (same outside area as before), 4 players on the outside of area with a ball each.

6 players in the middle, 3 attackers and 3 defenders

Attackers look to move towards players on the outside to receive ball, turn and then find another person on the edge without a ball to lay it off to. Defenders to apply pressure.

Switch Attackers to Defenders, rotate feeders regularly

Key Points -

As per technical

Emphasise the change of pace to surprise defenders
