Skiller OTW – The Marseille Turn

This week Skiller Of The Week concentrates on the McGeady Spin

Zinedine Zidane has been known to use different variations of the Marseille turn. Instead of using his sole to drag the ball back in the move’s first phase, he sometimes uses the inside of the foot, especially if he is performing the move while running at high speed.

Franck Ribery and Aiden McGeady also perform slightly modified versions of the spin. The modifications include dragging the ball behind their standing foot instead of to the side during the first phase. The third phase also sees them using the outside of the boot instead of the sole.

The Aiden McGeady variation, known as the McGeady spin, has been included in EA Sports FIFA video game series.
