The modern day Defensive Midfielder is an INTEGRAL part of any team. This is a player who is calm on the ball, orchestrates coming out of the back, their distribution is world class, on and off the ball their movement is exquisite. So… What skills do you need to be a fantastic DM?
1️⃣ PASSING ABILITY
Today’s featured player HAS to be the best DM in the game right now, College Cup Champion with UCLA, multiple NWSL Champion with the Flash and Courage, FA Cup Winner with Manchester City, US Soccer Player of the Year 2020, AND World Cup Winner…the marauding wildebeest from Hanson, MA, Sam Mewis!
Watch Sam at Manchester City and you will see one of the most complete DM’s to play the game. She bullies midfields, she distributes, she defends, she assists and she scores goals. The most underrated player on that USWNT World Cup Winning team. Her play reminds me of a mix between Gilberto and Busquets (if you know you know)
So that's the skillset you need to become a top Defensive Midfielder! Follow me on Instagram, and you can tell me which other positions you would like me to do!
