In this session we work towards a tighter defence by teaching your players how to deal with speedy forwards, such as Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez - teaching them to hold the man up and not recklessly dive in!
Many coaches often focus a lot of time and attention on playing the offside trap. Although this can be successful eventually the opponent is going to time their run right, leaving you with a line of defenders sprinting desperately back towards their own goal.
To reduce your team's reliance on the offside trap instead we look at staying with your man, holding them up and not committing too early. Starting with a couple of Wake Up drills to get your players nicely warmed up - you can then work your way through a series of challenging defensive exercises to improve your team's defensive game!
