BigNews.Biz - Jul 24,2009 - London, England July 24, 2009 – Whatever your views are on whether Cristiano Ronaldo is worth the recent record transfer fee of £80m, there’s no denying that the current FIFA world player of the year is a very special talent.
And like many of the world’s best players - such as Lionel Messi and Kaka - his game is undoubtedly underpinned by soccer speed training methods.
Ronaldo’s move to Real Madrid coincides with the launch of a new website, ProSoccerSpeed.com – aimed at soccer coaches and players and dedicated to soccer speed and skills development.
According to the site’s publisher, Joel James, it is well known in soccer coaching circles that training sessions at the player’s former club Manchester United are routinely structured to develop many aspect of soccer speed - physical as well as mental.
“The site continues to develop” James added, “and over the coming weeks and months we’ll be adding more articles and uploading interviews with soccer speed training and performance experts.”
And what of Ronaldo’s secret weapon? “It’s simple,” said James, “the best players and coaches know that soccer speed is a skill that can be learned.” This is the most important element of an effective soccer speed development programme.
