Jovan Dabic is the assistant coach of Guangzhou R&F in the Hong Kong Premier League.
In this episode, we discuss the theory of football action language. Unfortunately, general non-contextual words are used far too often by coaches in communication with their players. Things like, “Be sharper” or “Lacking confidence” are said by nearly every coach, but what is the consequence of using non-descriptive language in how it is interpreted by the brains of our players? We then offer an alternative form of communicating called action language.
