Book Summary:
This book is the result of the author's almost 20 years of teaching experience covering all age groups and playing categories. It has been written for all those engaged in teaching football, those who are learning the game and those who are striving to achieve peak performances.

The book comprises a theoretical section which contains all the teams relating to practice as well as a didactic-methodical section with a comprehensive range of progressive exercise and training forms bearing direct relevance to the game.

The book attempts to show that exercise and training do not have to be robot-like drill providing no pleasure at all but instead that the players can really enjoy and obtain the anticipated fulfilment from tha game when engaged in the exercises and training he has been called upon to carry out.

Enjoyment of the game must be the driving force both during the learning process as well as during training so that open-mindedness and the will to cooperate can guarantee rapid success with both to instruction and learning.

The book reveals new ways leading towards playing football well. It orientates itself to the players and the spirit of the game.
