Which central midfielders did you admire when you were growing up? As a kid I played for a side called PSTC (Parana Soccer Technical Center) from Londrina, and in those days we didn’t have a professional team, just a youth team. So the primary objective of that club was to develop talented players. One of the main players who left and became successful was Kleberson. He won the 2002 World Cup and played for Manchester United, so he became an example for every young player at the club to follow. Back then, he was the guy that inspired me, and he was a big reason why I decided to become a central midfielder. I was also lucky enough to play in the same team as him for Atletico Paranaense. Have you always…

loosen up your limbs

ALL EXERCISES 3 SETS 5-10 REPS 1 Leg lower We’ve seen enough players crippled by chocolate hamstrings and don’t want you to be next. “This exercise mimics the running and striking motions that you produce over and over in games,” says Perryman. “One hip is flexed and the other is loose. You should also feel a nice abdominal contraction if you do it slowly.” 2 Romanian deadlift If you’ve got hips stiffer than a rusty car door, you won’t be able to change direction. “This is an excellent hip-hinge movement and will loosen the posterior chain – the muscles on the rear of your lower body. It’s great for improving balance and preparing you for single-leg moves in a match.” 3 Glute band squat Prepare to leap off the ground and dominate the skies with this glute-burning routine.…

Hi David. You seem to have a very laid-back personality – how do you remain so relaxed during a match? I’m anything but relaxed! But thanks, I’m happy you think that. When you play at this level of football there’s no room to be relaxed for any second at all. As a Chelsea player, I am involved in top-level competitions for the entire season and my level of concentration is just as high as my responsibilities. The day before a match I am already living it. I think about the game, plan my strategy, focus on my opponent’s ability and so on. This thought process continues right until the final whistle of the match and it soon starts again in preparation for the following game. Some players describe suffering from pre-match nerves…

Safety bar half-squat Sets: 6 Reps: 4 If you are looking to get the better of the opposition full-back in a foot race, then this drill will give you a decent head start. “In football it’s very rare to find yourself in a deep squat, so I think a half-squat will translate better for any running and jumping movements while on the pitch,” explains Perryman. Single step-up Sets: 4 Reps: 8-10 There’s nothing better than watching a speed demon slip through the gears – master this routine and that could soon be you. “This mimics your movement at top speed. Start with one foot an inch above the box, then slam it down and drive up, keeping your hips firm.” Split stance trap bar deadlift Sets: 6 Reps: 4 Rapid speed off the mark will help you to…
