How to Play Like David Silva: Master the Assist

A Coerver drill to teach precision passing

Here is a great example from a top performer.

As a result of his vision, low centre of gravity and magnetic touch, David Silva is considered a master.   Constantly slipping passes through gaps and creating chances in the final third.

This drill is based around the Spaniard’s skill set.  It will challenge you to keep the ball in tight spaces and as a result pick that killer pass when the opportunity presents itself.
