Step 3: 4v4v4 (8v4) (15 mins)

You may need to adjust the numbers as this session was done by some of the best players in the World and devised by one of the best coaches in the World.

 

The 4 yellows play with the team in possession.

The idea is to keep possession for as long as possible.

The team in possession tries to open up the pitch, despite the tight area.

The team out of possession must press at maximum intensity & intelligence.

Every player needs to show for the ball, how the first touch should be played and where to move to next.

Play should be as quick as possible (1 or 2 touch).

 

You can select certain players to play 2-touch whilst everyone else plays 1-touch.

 

Guardiola is constantly correcting the players during the practice, almost micro managing the players.

It is incredibly intense and he demands maximum effort & concentration.
