Alf Galustian of Coerver Coaching on developing a soccer genius like Lionel Messi. Is this something you can coach or teach? Can you create a soccer player with the dribbling skills of someone like Messi?

“Messi is a one-off. But I’m certain everything he does can be taught.”

Galustian’s assertion that Messi is a working example for any aspiring young player. He says:

“Messi is the maestro and I think coaches can use this wonderful icon to excite young players to do long and consistent practice that is essential to acquire such super skills.

“Messi does it naturally but he is our teacher; we can break down and teach his movements through repetition. His genius is knowing not only how to make his wonderful actions but when and where – yet this knowledge will come as young players play more small-sided games, encouraged not to fear failure.”
