I use this drill to train the pressure of my team and the rapid exploitation of defensive weaknesses of opponents.

In space 40x40m create two groups of 5 players with 2 gk. Players get from a number and wait in the final line of their goal. I throw a ball in the center while shouting a random number. Players with the same number are required to run fast to get the ball.

He who will gain the ball is required to give a back pass to a team mate and only then the players from both teams can get in the pitch.
The player who came first continues to exert pressure on the new owner of the ball with the rest of the group followed by sprinting and pressing their opponents high. In this way they try to stem the offensive activity of the opponents.

If they manage to steal the ball they are now very close to the opponent goal.Then they should find solutions quickly to achieve goals. If they can not steal the ball and finish the situation I leave the game, until one of the two teams make a final attempt.

2.Explosive Offensive transitions

The insight and the appropriate decisions of my football players during the transition to the attack, is a constant concern but also a trademark of the teams I train.

I use the following training session mainly on a weekly micro-cycle during the season, where I want to give my players cohesiveness but also their function, with the recovery of the ball and the rapid transition to the attack under conditions.

Part 1:

Possession drill (rondo) 8v2 in square 15x15m.

The players are required to follow the rules of the all-known "rondo 5v2" with the following difference. After all passes, the outside players must run quickly around the pole placed outside the sides of the square.

This is how I prepare my football players for main training, with a move immediately after contact with the ball, which is decisive in setting up continuous action from the player's side for the attacking transition.

Exercise Intensity: 65-85% M.H.R.

Exercise Duration: 1-2 sets x 8'-10'

Exercise break: 1' per set

Part 2:

I divide the group into 2 groups 10v10.

SSG with ball possession in a 40x40m space.

Football players are placed in their positions based on the formation that I will follow in the next match but also and for the opponents based on the analysis that has been made. The space is selected based on the distance I want my team to have between the lines.

Teams play with 2 contacts with a target the "opposing" team the 10 passes (retaining their formation) and our "own team" pass through any of the 3 gates I have placed in a short time.

Exercise intensity: 75-95% M.H.R.

Exercise Duration: 1-3 sets x 3'-6'

Exercise break: 1' per set

Part 3:

Free game 10v10 with 2 GK at 3/4 of the pitch.

I let the game run freely without contact limitation but with the offside rule in place. I urge starting eleven team players to quickly exploit on the backs of the opponent's lines with constant movement and right decisions.

Exercise intensity: 75-95% M.H.R.

Exercise Duration: 1-4 sets x 6'-10'

Exercise break: 2 'per set
