Is this the Dawn of a New Era for Zim Football?

Apart from the negative publication of Zim Football, the firing and rehiring of warriors technical team, at least for now  Zim Football  family has something to smile about .

Zimbabwe Football Development Academy-Centre of Football recently introduced a football style targeted at Zimbabweans code named iTouch Football. The project is a brainchild of Zimbabwean coach based in the UK,Lord Morris Kakunguwo.

Kakunguwo told this publication that he innovated iTouch Football to improve and progress the African football standards to excellence.Lord Morris talks about universal type of football where all players can play different type of positions on the field of play.

As an experienced coach with AFC Aldermaston in the United Kingdom, Lord Morris believes his new style of football would be the blueprint of the Warriors and Zimbabwe football at large.
He currently spends time training coaches in his academy and others in Nigeria on how to train children on iTouch techniques. So i asked him what iTouch was all about?

” “i” stands for individual talent of a player which is the strength of the iTouch football when playing in a team. iTouch has 5 components of football which coaches use everyday but cannot distinguish or interpret to players in a way to gain success on the pitch,” he responded.
Lord Morris has been studying and following Pepe Guadiola, Jose Mourinho and Sir Alex Ferguson for more than five years. Kakunguwo said he has gone to the extend of buying the trio’s  books to understand their football techniques.
iTouch is clearly linked with technology as our game is developed technically to suit modern tactics. The touch on the brand links with the smartphones with touch screens and how often people touch the screen when using the phone is also how often players must touch the ball during passage of play.
iTouch comes with zones like in any strategy, it divides and defines the roles of players before they kick the ball.
iTouch has its own principles that are prioritised when players have the ball or without the ball.
Lord Morris emphasised the importance of Temperature playing at high tempo,with intensity, pressing high and putting the opposition under pressure.
Currently Lord Morris said iTouch was used in the Zimbabwe Soccer Premier League and the team benefited by surviving relegation and could  not divulge the name of the club for confidentiality purposes.
iTouch brings in passage of play and patterns of attacking which players will adopt when trained.
When these principles are followed by coaches, their teams will outplay the opposition.
iTouch also highlights the importance of Anaconda tactics which coaches use but without knowing the benefits.
iTouch brings in a style and philosophy of play mistaken from Spanish Tiki Taka because of possession but does not emphasise on possession without an attacking purpose or prowess.
Lord Morris feels because its his academy’s dossier and blueprint can only be shared by our iTouch specialist coaches as each age group comes with different characteristics.
The last team to benefit from the coaching techniques was Dzveya FC a village team in Dotito District which has over the years outplayed all teams because of the iTouch seeds sowed by Lord Morris.
iTouch values the goalkeeper as the last man in defence and decision maker in terms of distribution and key to success. Over the years keepers have been overlooked but iTouch empowers the goalkeepers as they start and reduce speed of play.

Can we really say the new era for Zim has dawned? Let’s wait and see how this iTouch Football will fare under this competitive market.

    I leave a response whenever I especially enjoy a article on a website or if I have something
    to contribute to the discussion. Usually it is triggered
    by the fire displayed in the post I browsed. And after this article Is this the
    Dawn of a New Era for Zim Football? – sportbrief.
    I was actually moved enough to leave a thought
    🙂 I do have a couple of questions for you if you usually do not mind.

    Is it just me or does it appear like a few of the comments look like written by brain dead visitors?

    😛 And, if you are writing at additional social
