Joshua Kimmich - Checking Over Shoulder Before Receiving



๐ŸŽฅ Bayern Munich and Germany international Joshua Kimmich is a world class midfielder. It's worth identifying the basic fundamentals that he has mastered which have allowed him to achieve the level of play he is on today.


๐Ÿ“ Take note of the following criteria that youth coaches (especially those with younger age groups), have to drill with their players so that they master them earlier, rather than later.


It is all about having them get enough correct repetitions to produce game automations before progressing onto more complex tasks where we introduce cooperation/opposition, or even competitive game-like scenarios.


๐Ÿงฉ Spacial awareness - scanning the field before receiving the ball -

๐Ÿงฉ Body position when receiving the ball - far foot -

๐Ÿงฉ Understanding of where the ball is coming from and where it needs to be directed

๐Ÿงฉ Perfectly weighted passes - inside the foot -


๐Ÿ’ก Perception - Decision - Execution
