Elite Soccer is a monthly magazine with exclusive coaching plans and practices written by the world’s best managers and coaches.
Each issue features six professional managers and coaches – working at clubs from the Premier League through League 2.
The first issue features sessions written by:
• Alex McLeish – Birmingham City
• Brian McDermott – Reading
• John Ward – Colchester United
• Alan Knill – Bury
• Brian Flynn – Wales U21
• Richard Hawkins – Manchester United
Elite Soccer (elitesoccercoaching.net) offers a unique perspective as each session is written by the manager or coach himself. Readers will gain insight into when and how often a session is used, as well as examples of when it has been influential in a professional game.
Former England, Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United manager Howard Wilkinson, Chairman of the League Managers Association, said: “As Chairman of the League Managers Association I am delighted that all of the managers appearing in Elite Soccer have taken the time to write their session plan specifically for the magazine.
Never before has the collective knowledge of our membership been available to those outside the professional game in such a direct and accessible format.”
Kevin Barrow, publisher of Elite Soccer said: "Elite Soccer is an exciting new prospect for coaches of grassroots and amateur teams. We’ve all dreamed about what it would be like to train like the professionals and now we can.
Elite Soccer gives us a look behind the scenes at what happens on the training pitches at clubs from the Premier League to League 2 - places that have until now been out of bounds for those of us outside the world of professional football."
Elite Soccer is only available online from Green Star Media Ltd by subscription. You will not find it in any newsagent or bookstore.
