Turning - Cruyff


Coaching Points


  • Drive in towards cone (Defender)
  • We plant non kicking foot next to the ball
  • With our kicking foot, we go round and over ball
  • Turn hips and pull ball through legs
  • You pull ball with inside of your foot
  • As soon as you plant non kicking foot you should be pulling the ball and turning
  • As you get more confident you should be faking a strike or pass to fool defender
  • Good players look before they turn to get into good habits
  • Perform at speed
  • You should explode as you change direction/turn
