'The Wall' Training Drill Manchester City Use Is Actually Brilliant

'The Wall' Training Drill Manchester City Use Is Actually Brilliant

Manchester City have taken inspiration from the great Eric Cantona with one of their training drills.

If you haven't heard the story before, Cantona used to kick a ball at a wall before training to practice his skills. Youth players would soon follow his lead and Cantona soon set a trend amongst the squad. The ultimate leader.

Anyway, Pep Guardiola's side have used the simple technique involving a wall in a recent training session and it's since gone viral.

Basically, if your team let's the ball drop then you must complete a group sprint. The coaches will count the scores based on passes completed within the set time. The teams will then progress to headers.

Unfortunately for the losing team, they must pass through the slap tunnel at the end of the session.

As you can see in the footage below, Yaya Toure takes his turn and teammates begin to sing the classic Yaya Toure song.

I'm sure plenty of you reading this will have used a wall to practice their skills, but to see a professional football club use this technique is actually quite refreshing.

Guardiola has been known to use this type of training before during his time at Barcelona and Bayern Munich. It certainly encourages team bonding as well as honing the touch.

You can't beat a creative training drill and La Liga side CD Leganes brought another to the table back in November.

The Spanish club have revolutionised a standard exercise ball with a unique assault course to increase spatial awareness.

A player must use the famous "dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge" techniques used by the likes of Peter La Fleur, Steve the Pirate and Gordon to avoid contact from the exercise ball.

In the meantime, the main objective for the player is to collect all four bibs from each cone.
