José Mourinho’s special session

The lead session in Volume 5 comes from legendary Real Madrid manager José Mourinho. Here is José’s overview of his session in his own words:

“The organisation of this session is simple – little equipment is required. The complexity comes through the fundamentals of team tactics, but this session offers a strict template on which we can build.

The session is about defensive organisation, and specifically two points: depth control and double marking. We examine distances and movement between defenders in protecting against attacking crosses arriving from the flanks.

With practice, defenders will be able to follow a set of processes of recognizing the threat, positioning accordingly, then dealing with the danger “

José Mourinho - Real Madrid

José Mourinho‘s session is developed in 8 diagrams looking at facets of defending including defensive areas, depth control and when to press.

A unique insight into David Moyes’s methodology

David Moyes’s contribution to this volume is a unique look at his methodology. This is unlike any other session contained in previous volumes. It gives you a blueprint for setting up a coaching session, allowing you as the coach to work on different areas of your team’s play in a small area.

David’s methodology is developed over 5 pages and includes the opportunity for you to download unlimited numbers of free session planning templates.

It’s more than just big name managers

The big names appearing in these books make them unique. But if the best manager in the world gave you a session plan that you couldn’t understand it would be worthless.

That’s why we’ve spent so much time making sure you can understand every word – even if English isn’t your first language!

We also invest in the best quality illustrations going. Hi-resolution and full colour, there are no x’s or o’s in sight.

Take a look at this session from Elite Soccer to see exactly what we’ve done to make our sessions as easy to use as possible.

Session overview - The manager tells you what the session is about, why they use it, and often when they will use it (“We do this on a Tuesday”). They also try to relate it to a passage of play you might have seen on tv or could find on the internet to see the pay-off in a match.

Set-up - Tells you what you’ll need to run the session. But don’t worry, the sessions in Elite Soccer: The Collectors’ Series don’t require any specialist equipment. Cones, bibs, goals and balls are pretty much all you’ll ever need.

Getting started - Tells you everything you need to know to get the session going.

The coach - Never heard of the coach providing the session? Find out about his coaching history. Be confident that you can trust the sessions from these high profile managers and coaches.

Progression - Explains how you can move the session on and adapt it. Every team has different requirements, make the session work for yours by increasing or decreasing the difficulty.

Match situations - Even the professionals like to end the training session with a game. This part makes sure your end game is reinforcing the session’s key points.

Technical/tactical considerations - Analyse what your players are doing well, and where there is room for improvement. The managers give you the main things to look out for.

Diagrams - The clearly laid out diagrams in Elite Soccer: The Collectors’ Series enable you to easily visualise the sequence of movements involved in each drill.

Key - Is that a pass or a player run? Avoid any confusion with an explanation of the graphics used on the diagrams, making even complicated learning scenarios easy to follow. You’d be amazed how many coaching books miss this vital element that makes the sessions so much easier to understand.
