In modern football parlance the word ‘transition’ has recently come to the fore, being used to describe a sudden change in play.
Here’s a ‘transition’ that will make you laugh. During Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Burnley at the weekend, the Blues’ defender Branislav Ivanovic fell after an aerial challenge and rolled around in agony on the ground.
However, once Ivanovic realised that no free-kick was forthcoming, he miraculously makes a complete recovery. Bravo Branislav.
