Arsene Wenger believes in five a side training for the Arsenal players

By 1970’s Gooner

Arsene Wenger is a strong believer in including five a side games in the training schedule for the Arsenal players. Speaking for Nike’s recent promotion of the five a side game he says that a good five a side player can be a good 11 a side player.

It prepares the players physically but also forces them to develop their skills and close ball control. This is because space is at a premium with opponents being on top of you forcing one touch football and quick movement off the ball.

Wenger considers Fabregas as one of the Arsenal players who could excel at five a side due to his vision, interception and quick passing. He reveals also that when the Arsenal players learn that it’s five a side training for the day it makes all of them very happy.

You can watch Arsene Wenger speaking about the subject on the video on the right hand side of the screen and also for a more extended interview at

Also as part of the same promotion Abu Diaby and Philip Senderos took charge of two five a side teams and coached for their games. You can watch that also on the video on the right hand side.

Nike are looking for the team with the best 5-a-side moves that showcase technical ability, pure skills, pace and vision. The Champions get to go on a once-in-a-lifetime, money-can't-buy training session with Arsene Wenger at London Colney.

It’s not what Everton can do but which Arsenal will turn up

I play 5 a side quite a lot and it is a perfect way to hone the skills. Maybe the young english kids should be forced to start on this so that they can develop the skills and ball control they seem to lack.
