Training: Post-Foxes fun and games!

The best of today’s session at the City Football Academy, including a must-watch training game…

Fresh from our 1-0 victory over Leicester, the focus has already switched to Wednesday's Champions League curtain-raiser against RB Leipzig, with a selection of Pep Guardiola’s men put through their paces at the CFA.

One particular drill takes centre stage in today’s session recap, which aimed to sharpen the players' touches in a unique and entertaining way.


Led by Head of Sports Science Sam Erith, the team were split into three small groups and tasked with an intricate passing sequence before delicately chipping the ball into a small-sized goal.

Our camera focused on the ‘grey team’ – made up of Nathan Ake, John Stones, Fernandinho, Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne – who emerged victorious!
