I TRAINED WITH LIVERPOOL FC FIRST TEAM | VIRGIL VAN DIJK AND ANDY ROBERTSONJan 23, 2022
It's here yeah guys today I'm at Liverpool FC with SC Johnson and two of Liverpool's most influential players in the last two years and one of their brightest up and coming youth players and today I'm going to get a taste of what it feels like to train as a
teamLiverpool player what a crossover love yes oh yes please I was going to be natural with the free kick but then I would be transported against Western lads you guys had a fantastic season obviously you must train like beasts because to get that output on the court, you have to work hard behind the scenes, so are you ready to test me today?
I always was. Get in there guys, this is going to be good. I'm looking forward to it, but before we get into the video, check this out to learn more about how Liverpool's amazing partnership with SC Johnson will see plastic around a field upcycle that SC Johnson has partnered with. Liverpool Football Club will create a recycling scheme for the 500,000 plastic bottles used in the End Pool each season to be reused in Mr Muscle Trigger bottles. Sustainability is something that affects us all and football is no different. recycle more plastic so we can all benefit from a healthier world in my household we recycle every week and it really doesn't take a lot of extra time or effort to recycle what we can and make sure it gets to the local recycling center so that's the big job what SC Johnson and Liverpool Football Club have been doing to recycle plastic around a pitch now on pitch Virgil and Robert have organized three Liverpool FC sessions designed to improve my skills Crossing and finishing defending and free kicks so Robbo us talk this
firstdrill what we're doing what's the right purpose he's going to go in and out of the dummies try to keep a tight grip facing them like he always does and then he'll play a 1-2 off the board and then he'll look up and try to find yourself in the Box, hopefully, yes, it's about trying to see your Movement, trying to see where you're going and trying to pick you and, ultimately scoring a goal judging by the stats of The Crossing for your
teamshould be something you guys work on a lot in training that's right yeah look we do a lot of crossing and finishing drills it's not just old -designed to send it to wenger or fullback and you always know the stages of play which team we're playing next and how they're going to sit so look it's very important that you know where the species should be and where they can be but look, it's about the runs it's about the ball and you know it's very important that you hit everything and you know split second and that's why when you look up you need to try to see the big picture wow I love that that's gold guys going ld here alright the man is giving us the insider alright let's run to the drill let's do it let's do it let's do it i want to finish it i want to finish without pressure though without pressure there is nothing worse than a cross and an end rubbish yeah I love that oh oh no okay we're going good let's get a better warm up yeah it's going so well on this side oh no on that side we need to focus a little more I think we're tripping on the last hurdle here every chain has his weakest link that could be the third now what's up well save Ali's song let's go again tell the doorman to let him you know something that has always interested me you're crossing over to PACE it's amazing is that something he has actively worked on because You know there's one thing that works in your cross with a moderate intensity but in a long game to get that yard you have to go full speed and then try and put a precise cross is something you actively work on or I hope the best because I think I think it's some experience for me.
More Interesting Facts About,
i trained with liverpool fc first team virgil van dijk and andy robertson...
You know it's more the more you do it. running at a really high speed, but I think right before you hit it it's important to try and you know to take that break. look up so it's time you know when I was younger I used to hit and wait and sometimes I would go out sometimes you knew I would hit your parents on the stand or whatever but um it's all about being quick in the moment but then it's been slow in the head where you can look up and hopefully it's all kind of in slow motion which has been I think I'm in my prime that when I look up I see I see the race more slow about what maybe is happening can we talk? about Crossing is crossing is magnificent consistency is scary consistency is the key oh oh please oh no no no no no no are you sure we have the right Jeremy with him?
I'm not going to let Virgil win. I'm going in. Yes, the standard is high here. Very high free kicks. Do you practice them before training? During training after training. you're right it's a fun thing to do yeah when you have a series session or whatever then a lot of the guys finish yeah free throws or whatever because Trent has to practice free throws yeah he can get better definitely not. but try to practice them a lot, yes, in fact, everything is like you go out, he is, you know, I think the most difficult thing, as with free children, to be consistent. on he was ready for it you know oh yeah please yeah please b Cause the tire is so small it feels like you can't get it but there was also 20 yards away guys doing yeah we got a better free kick than ours, the UF too, don't come near, I'll ask you what I want you to drink. a weirdo I actually know how good you are yeah he's good with them you used to help them with confidence at Celtic and then yeah obviously I got injured last year so I'm trying to get back to before the engineer than ever do you drink tea. anyone, so don't stop, it's coming, the hardest thing is to get the ball out of the train.
I was going to go next, you know, with a free kick, but then the transport against, it was Western West Ham, yeah, if you missed it. shoot a free kick at school. I'm taking all the credit. I just want you to know that it's okay, he came in, but he's not directing the fire, but you know what I really enjoy when free throws in front of you. too bad, thank you very much, oh, okay, this part is going to be fun. I'm looking forward to this. I'm going to be looking forward to this all week, actually we're going to go through different scenarios and I'm going to pick the guys' brains on what they would do in each scenario, so the first one is there's been rapid turnover. and Virgil finds himself in a 1v1 position against one of the best Strikers in the world.
I will fill that position. We'll just say that he's someone like me. I'm not even going to do it because everyone criticized me, so I'm going to establish myself in the position and then I'm going to see what Virgil thinks in different phases. The truth is that Liverpool FC is a bit of an unrealistic position because there will always be someone shelling out to cover and help. probably Andy, but just for this phase of the game you find yourself 1v1 and the striker runs right at you, so what's the first thing a Defender should do? I think, in my opinion, you will never be like that, of course.
It obviously makes it a lot easier for the striker so you try, obviously that's basic knowledge for you, but for anyone watching, why should you never be in a straight line? Because obviously you can't move that easily, so if I go, yeah, it's pretty hard for you. you try to always go in this position and you choose a side where you want the striker to go so you can basically set traps you try to know what is best for this so that the weakest feed is in your case you stay because you can see it and I have been studying myself , i already picked you'll touch only the one with your right foot right so i've seen it left foot is just foot foot it's killing me here so you've timed you've timed I'm on the right footage you've timed so early so you're showing me to my left yeah you show them to your left and if you go make sure you have it I'm running I actually run like this and you're making it real hard for me to go that way at some point I'll probably be gone . ng to try to change it and go yeah are you looking for any telltale signs that I'm going to no?
It's just that obviously I'll try to look at you trying to look you in the eye. because if somebody's in front of you is very technical and doing all these tricks and stuff, you might be thinking about what's going on there, so you can see the body language and in my case I like to look at some places, see these Didn't know? So let's say you said sometimes they're doing footwork so let's say I'm doing what I'm doing I'm just trying to fool you you're literally standing there you're not even looking down that's that's smart that's smart you you pause a bit because obviously then in my case it could have been a runner yes Rubble runner and if at one point he goes there I'm just trying to when in a clean way yeah I'll try so this is a wide position and same kind of thing for sure man brittle side yeah thats the tutorial which is literally yeah watch a lot of times now you got left footer playing right right first played left so i think if they fit well in one then you want to keep them yourself know for example he knows mo loves he knows he can go both ways but when he goes in he goes in and shoots and most of the time he has top corner or not so when he faces nt players against him, you should probably overdo it. line every bit and try to show them there because like you said when we play we don't get left alone very often you know our midfield work hard for us to be fair to them and you know we usually have back but I think as Virgil said once Ash is online or Virgil shows them, you need to make sure you have that.
I'm in the left center back, so I'm here. g I just received the ball, I'm going to attack, so I say outside, he receives, you already communicated to him, yes, if he is that close to me, then he will say Outsider inside and if someone is inside. I think it's always important to listen to them because they can see at this point that I can only see you, yes, and the ball, and that's my focus, but Virgil is talking or Millie or whoever is in midfield that I've seen outside or inside, so I think you have to know that it's very, very rare that we go against it.
You have to respect what they think is right and what they think because they can see the whole picture. that's key information, probably one of the most intimidating positions on a football field I could imagine in the Box, the center is about to come in and this man is here marking me, man marking zone, does it depend on the circumstances? What comes first which is something like rule number or ne, yeah that depends which side the bar is coming from so if it's coming from the right side what I don't expect is someone to beat Robo on the side, but anyway, if by chance they beat us and the cross goes in, then Normally, if there is a Forward, there is always the other center of the mark.
I see the top in the overview and you have the front the front area you have to cover basically yes you see the ball to make the near post and stuff so it's different the other side obviously you see your other , your partner, basically, I mean from zono, you have an overview of what's going on here, but if they have two strikers, a different story again, then you have to score. So someone else has to cover the first one and obviously you the goalkeeper he has to do a good job so I guess you have to communicate that, it all depends on the situation and also the opponent, like if you play him with no respect, like Burnley, he will obviously have a lot of physical players and he will come with everything. ing that they have in the box yes then you have to score correctly and make sure they don't have a clean header because you won't always win the header yes you can make it as hard as possible Andy Virgil thank you so much for taking the It's time to help me improve my knowledge and my skill set.
I really appreciate it because honestly what I take with me today is a lot of things, but among the things that I take with me, these guys have very high standards, so it doesn't matter how good they are. you do something, they'll recognize it, but they're looking for small details about how you can improve and I think that's what separates the good from the best. That's what I think. SC Johnson bins to recycle your plastic until next time love peace and foreign technicians that's what we like to see
