After hearing Sir Alex Ferguson earlier this week confirm the situation with Wayne Rooney I could only think one thing: unbelievable! Other high profile players at Manchester United have left due to fall-outs with Sir Alex Ferguson, however, this situation is quite different.
In soccer, the ball can come at you any way. It can come to you on the ground, bouncing, to your chest, to your head, and etc. Deciding how you will receive the ball can be the difference between a goal and a miss. Being able to receive the ball on any part of ones body will automatically make the difference between a good player and a great player.
Many balls come to a player at their chest. It might be from a cross, goalie kick or simply a miss hit pass. Understanding how to stop it on your chest is more important than most players can ever realize.
