back four: who steps out to press?

Goal: defensive choice making: ball pressure/ man marking @ outnumbered 5vs4 + outlet 3vs4

Exercise: Orange attack (right/left). Player in the middle passes to outside to start attack. @ 23y there's a sweeper to pick up the two attacking midfielders, the back3 starts in a left/central/right position (each with a striker). When play goes on: free to move!

attackers try to score in D, when defenders pick up > midfielders return and defense play 3vs4 to side goals.

Rotation: when attack is done at one side, midfielders return, attackers/defenders get back in position for play @ other side.

Variations: overload 4vs3, 3vs2 if less players, put goals at the outside of the 23y to challenge the defenders to outlet 3vs4 (midfielders not involved, shaded area)

Extra information: attackers have to create space: make smart running lines, blocks to confuse defenders. Defenders: protect the most dangerous zones.
