How to Play Like David Silva: Master the Assist

Use this drill from Coerver Coaching to mimic the Spanish playmaker’s precision passing

by : Alec Fenn

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

If only you could do the same at your level… Well guess what? You can – you just have to pay close attention to this drill designed by Coerver Coaching’s Alfred Galustian (@coerveralf).

Based around the Spaniard’s skill set this exercise will challenge you to keep the ball in tight spaces and as a result pick that killer pass when the opportunity presents itself.

If you put the hours in on the training pitch you will eventually equip your game with Silva-inspired finesse – patience, a good first touch and an eye for a defence-splitting pass.

Hit play and become your team’s creative force.
