How many touches do your club A-League midfielders take on the ball?

Ten years ago research shows that midfielders in Europe had 6-8 touches every time they got the ball.

Five years ago it was down to 3-5.

Now studying the Quarter Finals of last years Champions League it was down to an average of 1.8 touches per midfielder.

Who says?

Coach from Dinamo Zagrab one of the top ten Youth Development Production Factories in Europe. Check the video here.

Check out your club on the weekend. Sydney FC fan? Oh you can't guess Stuey Musialik's average was a little higher - you know I think it might have been!
