Can you please help me out..
Thank you.
I'd say...play more often with your left foot. haha.
Seriously though....play more with your left foot.

You are only as quick as your weakest foot so, that means, more time is needed to develop said weaker foot. The only way to do that is to use it more often....not learning a "illusive technique".

Play on a left handed kit for a couple of months....you'll be blown away at how much control you will get in a short time period.

Cheers,
