Great app but I have some suggestions

Overall this app is helping me a lot in my football journey and I just wanted to say if you ever looking to enhance your football career than this is the app for you. It gives you step by step instructions on drills for different positions. It also has fitness and recovery training too. I suggestion I have is that you guys should start having a diet plans that pro footballers use. I been struggling a lot on what and what not to eat also which foods are more beneficial to my body as a footballer. I also suggest having more of a variety of stretching seasons for the off days or games days. I don’t know I think it would help on what to do after or before matches you know. Well those are all the suggestions I have about this app but the rest is awesome. Love y’all and take care.

Great App

Love this app. Super helpful when it comes to tactics especially for me.
However, there is one tactic video that doesn’t show up: “Ball on the ground vs the Air”
Also, there are defensive and attacking midfielder tactic sessions, but I don’t see any regular center mid ones. Did you mean for the defensive to be the central cm too?
Another thing: I would love to see some tutorial videos on how to perform in certain situations, for example, how to defend an attacker dribbling right at you.
Thanks, great work

One of the best training apps I’ve used

I’ve tried multiple football training apps, and this one is the best I’ve used. I’m a college-aged football player, and this app really helps when I’m trying to balance school work and training. This app offers a numerous amount of exercises to help improve your game. Even without the membership program, you still have a lot to work with. If you wanna improve your game, I’d recommend this app!
