William Viklund

Head coach U17

  • Date Joined: 29th September 2016
What I am looking for,
I want to work with dedicated players who have the motivation to become the best that they can possibly be. I prefer working with players from the age of 15 and upwards. However, with the right club and environment I could also consider working with younger players. I am interested in opportunities world-wide.

What you would get,
I am a highly educated and dedicated coach who always strives to improve myself and those around me. I am team player who puts the success of the club and the long term improvement of the players ahead of personal glory.

Coaching philosophy,
I believe that football/soccer builds physique so most of the football fitness training should be done by playing football. However, football can also build the physique unevenly therefore some training exercises are required off the pitch.
The most common action you perform in a football game is a decision. This is why almost all of the training should include as much information sources (opponents, teammates, attack. transition, defend) from the game itself. Without the relevant information sources there will be no decision making that reflects the decisions players make in the game. The player’s psychology, physiology, game insight and skill performance can be holistically developed and evolved within the practice environment.

Football fitness, game insight, skill acquisition and football psychology can be periodized (with flexibility) and are integrated parts of my planning, training and coaching philosophy.
