BIG RON PREACHES THE 6 A SIDE GOSPEL AS BLACKPOOL PLAYERS GET READY FOR ENGLAND SHOT
“Modern footballers could benefit from playing more 6 a side football” – that’s the assessment of former Manchester United and West Brom boss “Big” Ron Atkinson, as players in local leagues across Blackpool prepare to potentially pull on the national shirt of the country.
Atkinson, who will be leading the England national team in the 6 a side football World Cup in Crete this autumn, questioned whether modern football was getting too bogged down in tactics and systems, saying: “Football is a simple game, it always has been. Get the ball and keep it."
6 a side footballers in Leisure Leagues nationwide network of 500 leagues could find themselves in Crete being coached by Atkinson.
The home nations are all looking for fresh blood to shake up their fortunes as they look to improve on their showing last year and challenge Germany for the crown.
