Footwork is very important in modern football. Just about every club, every scout looks at the technical side of a goalkeeper’s feet. If you are working at an elite level, you will surely know that KRC Genk is known for having feet almost as a priority on their goalkeeper’s wish list. Tijn Van Ingelgom admits that his footwork did not score the best marks on his evaluation. That is why he and his team & trainers took up the challenge to become a footballing playable goalkeeper. Therefore, they now train very hard almost every day on the various “get-out” movements as well as the opening turn. Having an idea of where you need to go beforehand does not only help you to stay calm in difficult circumstances, it also ensures that you can put the ball in the right position to switch and play in quickly.
