Steven Pienaar: Sharpen your skills

Improve your skills and emulate Everton’s finest with these tips from Steven Pienaar

To have the skills of a Premier League star you need to execute highly technical, complicated drills right? Wrong.

Everton’s master technician Steve Pienaar takes a handful of cones and a football in to the gym and gets on with it.

“I always go into the gym and put cones in a semi-circle around one corner of the room,” he told FFT.

“I stand in the middle and kick the ball against one wall, turn and kick the ball against the other wall, and so on. “This drill helps me to work on my close control and turning in small spaces.”

So there you have it – there’s no reason why you can’t develop your command of the ball.

Now all you have to do is dust off that gym membership.
