Unique coaching sessions from the leading figures in soccer management Welcome to Elite Soccer’s Ultimate Coaching Sessions, a new way of accessing training sessions from the world’s best professional soccer coaches.

We have identified 25 of our favourite sessions from the Elite Soccer archive and compiled them into five manuals, each looking at a different key area of play:

Attacking, Defending, Midfield, Goalkeeping and Fitness. In this issue, Ultimate Defending Sessions, each of the training plans is written by a manager or coach at the very top of the game, including Premier League and Championship winning managers:

Roberto Mancini believes it is vital that his defenders are strong and decisive.

His training session shows us how he instils those qualities in his players, and it must be working for him as his Manchester City side conceded fewer goals than any other team in their 2011-2012 Premier League winning season.

Brian McDermott’s Reading side put together a great run to clinch the 2011-2012 Championship title.

Here, his high-energy shot-blocking drill shows the kind of attention to detail that contributed to that success.

Nigel Adkins identifies that one of the keys to a solid defence is the ability to deal with crosses effectively and efficiently.

Here he gives us a training session that contributed to his promotion winning Saints side achieving a club record run of clean sheets.

Steve Bruce was one of Manchester United’s most celebrated centre halves and knows his craft inside out.

In this session he shows us how defenders need to prepare for occasions when they find themselves detached from their defensive partners.

And Dave Jones presents a session that drills and organises the back four as a solid, settled unit, focussing on the core principle of when to show an opponent inside and when to show him outside.

We thank each of these top professional coaches for providing us with their valuable insight into the game.

And we hope that these training sessions provide you with the inspiration and motivation to take your own team on to great success.

Enjoy the manual and best of luck in your coaching.
