Teambuilding The late Rinus Michels was named FIFA Coach of the Century. He was the creator of 'Total Football', a brand of creative attacking soccer epitomized by his Dutch National Team and his club sides at Ajax and FC Barcelona. He was truly one of the giants of world soccer.
Michels called upon all his knowledge and experience to write this book, a 'soccer bible' for coaches, trainers and managers throughout the world as a source of inspiration.
All facets of the team building process, including team tactics and psychology, are included down to the smallest detail. Also included is how youth talent, per age group, should be developed. And finally, how to set up training sessions to achieve the best results.
All the chapters are interspersed with examples from Michels' personal experiences as a coach. At the same time he gives a reference framework for everyone who is, on a daily basis, involved with the team building process: from professional and youth coaches to managers in the business world
