Tuchel: “Close your eyes and shoot!”

We have to listen to Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel talking about training players because he has demonstrated with Chelsea’s run of form that he is indeed a very good manager.

He was telling us this week how a good striker should score goals consistently.

He said, “I truly believe the best strikers were always strikers, it’s not so much about the coaches who train them, it’s just in their blood…it’s the positive thinking that matters and you escape the pressure of having to score.

They ask themselves if their decision to shoot is good and the vision clear enough.

So if you just hit the ball and more or less close your eyes and hope to God that it’s in, you just focus on the result and that’s what we try to implement and how we try to help.

Of course, we show videos and train but for a striker it’s most important to be confident to score.”
