Set pieces training
With this training type all players playing match recieve training in the set pieces skill that week.Also, the Set pieces Taker and the Goal Keeper receives 25% bonus training. Regardless of age this training takes about 2.2 weeks for a player to raise a level. About 2% of the managers train set pieces. When you train Set Pieces, your Goalkeeper and your Set Pieces Taker will get a 25% bonus on training. To optimize training, you can set up the set pieces taker - in case your regular one is being substituted - using the Penalty Takers tab. If your SP Taker will be substituted, the second player from the Penalty Takers tab will do the job, not the substitute.
