e-learning

Hi,

The e-learning section of PL-Football  has changed. The information about my football philosophy that previously was presented in e-books is now also available as an application. The e-books describe the football philosophy at FC Shakhtar Donetsk and FC Kairat Almaty and the application will show you how to come to an organized training session.

The application “PL-Football” is available in the apple app store and the google play store the e-books are available at amazon.com.

The new application will give you an insight in the football philosophy, the structure of the training session and multiple examples of exercises that will guide you and assist you in your work as a coach. The application and the e-books are available in Russian and English language.

With kind regards, Patrick van Leeuwen
