Martin O'Neill

A respected football coach and television pundit renowned for his inspirational style of leadership, Martin O’Neill has won numerous major trophies and three promotions in a managerial career spanning 30 years.
Manager of the Republic of Ireland from November 2013 to November 2018, he took the Irish to the knockout stages of the 2016 European Championship before suffering elimination at the hands of hosts France.
O’Neill enjoyed a glittering career as a player.
A league champion and twice a European Cup winner for Nottingham Forest under Brian Clough, he won 64 caps for Northern Ireland and captained his country at the 1982 World Cup.
After hanging up his boots, O’Neill went into club management in the lower leagues. He initially took charge at Grantham Town, followed by a brief spell at Shepshed Charterhouse before finally making a name for himself with Wycombe Wanderers. He took the club into the Football League for the first time in 1993 and enjoyed successive promotions. He also lifted the FA Trophy twice in his time with the Blues.
After a short stint as manager of Norwich City, O’Neill joined Leicester City and immediately took the club to the Premier League via the play-offs. Under O’Neill the Foxes won the League Cup in 1997 and 2000, as well as reaching the final in 1999. He also led the club through two UEFA Cup campaigns.
In June 2000 O’Neill moved to Glasgow to manage Celtic at a time when Rangers were the dominant force in Scottish football. O‘Neill reversed that domination by winning seven trophies in five seasons, including the domestic treble in 2001. He also guided the Bhoys to the 2003 UEFA Cup Final, which Celtic lost 3-2 in extra time to a Porto side managed by José Mourinho.
A four-year spell in charge of Aston Villa saw him take the club into Europe and to the final of the 2010 League Cup, where his team lost out to Manchester United. His most recent tenure in the Premier League was as manager of Sunderland.
In January 2019, O'Neill was appointed manager of Nottingham Forest.

This session is about a face-on 1v1 that develops centrally. It is a session designed for strikers, with the end result hopefully being a shot on goal. MORE
