During my playing career I won 6 championships with 5 different teams. At the age of 29 I stopped playing and completed my studies in fitness conditioning and football coaching. I was also a student of the UEFA coaching schools (H.F.F. in Greece) and I am a fully certified UEFA ‘A’ Licence coach.
I started my coaching career coaching at academy level for 3 years and for the last 6 years I have been a head coach at F.C. Doxa Dramas (professional Greek team) and 3 different semi-professional teams in Greece (winning 2 championships).
I love to learn from the great and
successful teams who help to
evolve the game.
For my second book of the series,
I wanted to use my skills to create
great content for coaches all over the world to improve their training
sessions. I decided to analyse the
most successful national team in
recent years, Spain. They are a team which play attractive,
but also effective football and have
conquered all before them. The
period in which all these goals were
scored was 2008-2012 (official
competitive games) when Spain won
Euro 2008, the World Cup 2010 and
I think this is a book which provides
content that has not been produced
before. We have combined a
comprehensive analysis of the
phases of play which lead to goals
with training exercises that can be
used for coaches to train the same
tactical situations used with many
formations such as the 4-4-2, 4-3-3,
4-1-4-1 and 4-2-3-1.
1. We analyse Spain’s tactics and
the phases of play which lead to
their best goals and work on how
to recognise and find solutions
against different opposition’s
formations and various tactical
2. We created specific practices
to train how to apply the same
objectives to your team and
achieve the same results.
