“The choice of having Michael’s Bumpus as physical trainer is not random and is based on the similarity between wide receivers and soccer players. As matter of fact, wide receivers are among the most impressive athletes in any sport. They run at fast speed, have quick and agile footwork and are able to catch a ball while battling defenders. These qualities can be exported to modern soccer players who need to have not only great footwork but also ability to fight for the football to establish possession. Furthermore the importance of training on fast accelerations is crucial for the majority of positions played on the football field but especially for forward and defenders”
