I had 2 phases of rehab after ACL surgery.
1st phase was purely strength training to get enough strength back in the leg to match the uninjured leg.
2nd phase was sports training to build agility, speed, flexibility, coordination in order to return to sports.
Xavi makes his living passing the ball accurately;long and short; forward, backward and sideways;always keeping possession while looking for the opportunity of that killer pass and making it happen. That's how he got five Ballon d'Or nominations.
Not a criticism but Freund can make those...
