An All Round Guide To Becoming A Complete Footballer with Football Coach Tom Mura

Written by admin

“you can only do tactically what you can do technically” – Tom Mura

Those words struck a cord with me and for some reason I keep replaying it in my mind.

The dream of most young boys and in some cases girls is to play professional football. The glitz and glamour lifestyle lived by some of the world’s elite players is joy to behold on any level.

That dream start out as fun and then steadily progresses to competition for places and a quest to make the team.

Every next level requires more and more work and even when you become elite the work continues.

Achieving your dreams of becoming a professional footballer is not rocket science but at the same time its not a walk in the park.

How do you then achieve those dreams? You do so by understanding how the game works. The physical side of the game, the mental side of the game and also the business side of the game.

When you’ve coached footballer for over 25 years you definitely become an expert especially when you’ve committed to your craft.

Tom Mura fits that description perfectly. Tom is a football coach and he is the publisher and editor of World Class Coaching. He is also the host of the very informative podcast, Coaching Soccer Weekly.

What I love about Tom and the work he does is that the way he explains the game in such a way that even a 10 year old would understand. He is a true master of his craft and it showed in this conversation.

This episode will give you an all round guide to becoming a complete footballer. If you’re a complete footballer, it means you’ll stand out in the game. If you stand out in the game, your chances of making your dreams come true are within reach.
