More About Coach Mislav

New York City Football Club youth programs coach.
Worked as a U19 coach in Fredrikstad FK (Norway).
I'm organizing group sessions as well as individual 1 on 1 trainings. Working with all age groups.

I'm an ex-professional soccer player from Croatia who played 13 years professionally in Europe. Through my career I played with and against some of the best players in the world (Luka Modric, Mateo Kovacic, Marcelo Brozovic, Adrian Mutu etc). With more than 150 games at the top level of European soccer and being coached by some of the best coaches in Europe, I'm a perfect match to pass the knowledge I gained to the new generations of soccer players.

I plan my session for each player individually depending on their needs and skills. For each position the player plays, I try to work on the skills needed for the specific position. Also, I put a lot of focus on the first touch, passing skills and technique.

Client Reviews

I have had coaches work with my son before so I do have somewhat of a baseline going into this session. Our first impression when we first met coach was what is his energy like. He was very calm and easy going which for a child meeting a new person, especially one you are going to be spending one-on-one training time with, is very important. When they started, coach went right into various training drills to assess areas of skill and improvement. In the process of these drills, coach engaged in getting-to-know-you dialogue with my son which further enhanced the experience. He steadily worked with my son at a good pace over the next hour carefully assessing him. After the first session he gave me an honest break down of glows and grows. Most importantly I asked my son his thoughts and he simply said "I like coach". I could already see growth in my son's mentality, something that was holding him back from unlocking his potential. We look forward to continue working with coach Mislav and seeing my son's progress.

My daughter really enjoyed her training session with Coach Mislav. She cannot wait to train more.

I really enjoyed working with Mislav today. He was very encouraging and pushed me to keep going throughout the session. He explained to me how he plans on improving my skills in the future and I'm very excited to see how I progress over the next year with him!

Coach Mislav is very experienced player and coach as well. I had great training session with him. He's focused during the training and pays attention on details. I'm looking forward to work more with him.

Fantastic session with Mislav today! He is very knowledgeable about football and put together a precise and challenging training session. He also has great communication skills and this allowed me to really understand and execute the drills. I highly recommend Mislav for anyone who would like to improve their game.

Excellent first session. Looking forward for training more with coach Mislav L. Seeing me for the first time, coach Mislav was able to determine my skill/conditioning level and conduct a 100% training session. Mislav is a skilled, experienced coach, and he is passionate of what he is doing. He also helped me to fix a couple of things I was struggling with for a while and gave me a constructive feedback on my skills. I highly recommend coach Mislav to other athletes.

Coach Mislav is great. His technique of training is very professional. He's able to let my son know where his weakness and on what he need to improve. My son loves him and can't wait to have more sessions with him. Very recommended.
