We’ll shortly begin the step-by-step process of building and implementing an individual development plan. While we do this, we’ll hear from coaches and individual development specialists working in professional football.

Before that though, we’re going to look at the real-life impact of individual player development with a case-study. By experiencing ‘the big picture’ and what can happen when a player buys into the active development process, some of the tasks, articles and videos throughout this course will be more relevant.

Don’t worry if some of the following information is new or unusual to you. In fact, that’s a great sign you’ll be able to take away some really important information from this course.

Jack Grealish

In August 2021, Jack Grealish was transferred from Aston Villa to Manchester City for a reported £100m.

The move came after a 6-goal & 10-assist season. In his previous campaign for Villa, Grealish provided only 5 assists, with an equal 6 goals. Grealish was nominated for the Premier League Player Of The Year award alongside Harry Kane, Bruno Fernandes, Mo Salah and Kevin de Bruyne.
