Link-Up Play Session with Rene Meulensteen (youth level)

(click on picture for the session)

Attached is a powerpoint session created by Rene Meulensteen while at Manchester United. I ran it with my boys u11 club team and it went smoothly. I ran all parts besides the last two slides (slides 6 and 7). The important objectives to focus on are: -Quick combination play (quick decision making and moving after passing) -Change of direction with the ball (turns which you incorporate at the beginning of the session) -Switching play. If you can bring these three things out in the session I think the players will get a lot out of it.
