Description

Focus: Defending and regaining the ball back in key areas of the pitch to create goal-scoring opportunities.


Coaching Points:

Pressing the ball/delay – Nearest man – quick approach, slow down, side on, arc run to force play in one direction (predict play)

Support angles and distances to pressing

Cover arrangements matching movement/runs by opposition player(s) – DO NOT ball watch

Balance – stop ball going through spaces/gaps to opposition player – get organised

Control/restraint – judge when/when not to engage player on ball, look over your shoulder around ball and away from ball

Depth – how far players away from man on ball, units of players and goal

Compactness – defending players reducing space/time for player on the ball – team shape with regarding the units in the formation condensing the pitch
