Mourinho, LVG and Manchester United feel the heat…
FourFourTwo· Thu, Dec 15 2016 12:23:34
According to José Mourinho the body & the head are two separate things. I thought the head was part of the body.....
Will the once revolutionary Jose Mourinho be the next Arsene Wenger?
Introducing a new revolutionary approach and sticking to it for ever.Raymond Verheijen
Maybe Mourinho should look in the mirror & question the relatively static exercises due to relatively small pitch sizes he uses in training?Raymond Verheijen
Always using relatively small pitch size means players are standing still a lot in training which has significant effect on football fitnessRaymond Verheijen
Mourinho was winning trophy after trophy with a revolutionary training method. Has this success stopped Jose from evolving in last decade?Raymond Verheijen
Did Jose Mourinho make the same mistake as Arsene Wenger who is repeating his once revolutionary training methods for over two decades now?Raymond Verheijen
Maybe this is why Zlatan Ibrahimovic is publicly questioning Jose Mourinho's training methods and complaining about his lack of fitness?Raymond Verheijen
Maybe this is why Manchester United are rock bottom of the table in terms of the average number of explosive football actions in EPL games?Raymond Verheijen
What lesson can young coaches learn from this case study?
Never publicly blame your players.
Always look in the mirror and blame yourself!Raymond Verheijen
On Manchester United…
The Man United injury crisis is just another example of coaches learning by trial & error instead of coaches who know what to do in advance.Raymond Verheijen
The Manchester United injured XI: De Gea, Darmian, Smalling, Jones, Shaw, Fellaini, Schweinsteiger, Valencia, Rooney, Young. Martial.Raymond Verheijen
United injury list (1/3): Sam Johnstone, Matteo Darmian, Donald Love, Ashley Young, Antonio Valencia, Chris Smalling, Axel Tuanzebe.....Raymond Verheijen
United injury list (2/3): Phil Jones, Luke Shaw, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, Marcos Rojo, Sean Goss, Marouane Fellaini.....Raymond Verheijen
The Man United talents are thrown in the deep game after game after game. So, the injury risk increases dramatically
On Louis van Gaal…
Despite the fatiguing external factors ‘teacher’ Van Gaal rigidly applied his double session method just like he did at Ajax, Barca & BayernRaymond Verheijen
Not surprisingly, the United players accumulated a lot of fatigue and started to pick up many injuries as LVG refused to adjust his methods.Raymond Verheijen
Knowing LVG’s ‘teacher’ style, the Man Utd injury crisis was predicted well in advance on Twitter which is very powerful for coach educationRaymond Verheijen
Man United ended up in the biggest injury crisis in the history of the club. Afterwards LVG blamed the external factors for the injury chaosRaymond Verheijen
The real 'injury' reason was ‘teacher’ Van Gaal rigidly applying his demanding training methods ignoring specific external factors at UnitedRaymond Verheijen
In contrast to rigid ‘teachers’ like Klopp & Van Gaal, the flexible ‘managers’ like Ancelotti & Hiddink would never have made this mistake.Raymond Verheijen
Young coaches should develop structured methods like Van Gaal & Klopp but learn to apply them in a flexible way like Ancelotti & Hiddink.Raymond Verheijen
A powerful message to rigid 'teachers' like Van Gaal, Klopp & Guardiola who tend to be blind for the circumstances.
Van Gaal is “gambling” with Manchester United players’ fitness, says Verheijen

My interview about Van Gaal in 2014 with @ReutersUK: "Van Gaal is over-training Man United players - Verheijen"
In 2014: "What Louis van Gaal proves is that top coaches are not perfect. Even the world's best have deficiencies"
In last week's interview with the Independent Van Gaal confessed he has indeed overtrained his players last year
"Why avoiding a setback or injury of United talents is responsibility of manager Van Gaal" in How Simple Can It Be?
The mistakes made by Wenger, Klopp, LVG & Co should be publicly addressed, embraced and seen as learning opportunities for all other coachesRaymond Verheijen
