Coaching philosophy defines your career advancement and success, also how your team functions in practices and competitive situations. My coaching philosophy and Methodology is the fundamentals of program; not only to guide me as a coach but also the entire staff of my team, it also sets the stage for my players in the team which leads them to assume responsibility for their actions and decisions, that encourages them to meet the expectations of the entire team.
Passing, keeping possession is about techniques, judgement and vision. Long passing, short passing, side foot passing and crossing are all important to really sharpen players’ passing skills,” I choose this philosophy, “Retieni e Passa” which is Passing and Possession Game, because is key to winning games and disorganizing opponents, One of the key moments in possession game is being able to use the ball and create goal scoring chances, It is very easy to just keep the ball and neglect the principles of attack.
” Passing and Possession is so important and really worth spending as much time as you can on getting players reacting to having the ball and making decisions to keeping it, they can switch play when in possession and spread out to keep the ball from their opposition. When playing forward, every players must support their team mates in the next zone by making fast forward runs to receive a one touch pass back if necessary, as this makes it much easier to maintain the possession of the ball and progress through the zones.
Keeping possession is key to winning games and the football passing drills will help my new team achieve that, The best passing teams dictate the play, conserve energy, make the best of their resources and score excellent goals, joining Rangers International is Joy Unlimited for me, they have rich history in the Nigeria Professional Football League, they are a Big brand and Organized, always desire Success.
