ARRIGO SACCHI TACTICS PDF

Though Sacchi never enjoyed a sustained playing career, he did display a supreme tactical ideology revolved around the continuation of attacking upon scoring the first goal. The intertwining of fluency and precision in regards to the creation of goal scoring opportunities came naturally for Milan under the guidance of Sacchi. Sacchi would explain the location of the hypothetical ball, thus forcing the players to configure their own movements and imaginary passages of play. Therefore, the team gathered what the best decision to make when in possession would be.

Benjamin Zander. Counter- or Gegenpressing is, in its core, a very simple and understandable concept. It just means that the team immediately after losing the ball tries to press against the ball to prevent an oppositional counter and — instead of transition into the ordinary defensive organization, whatever it may be — being able to immediately get into possession again.

For exact details on counterpressing, you can read up on it in this article the basic aspects of it, here you can find variations and in this German article I have tried to cover everything I could think of within words. The Busby Babes for instance were never lauded as a great tactical side, but they already displayed short passing football with mostly zonal marking and immediate pressing when losing the ball to prevent the opponent from countering.

Still, a few teams often are called stand-outs in the application of this specific strategy. Another coach often connected to this style is obviously Josep Guardiola, whose teams would always try to get the ball back as fast as possible; no matter if Barcelona or Bayern. And the forefather of both in terms of defensive work and counterpress is Arrigo Sacchi, who won back to back European cups 25 years ago. But obviously there are clear differences between all of these teams in their application of counterpressing — a strategy that has become standard on top level nowadays.

In this environment Sacchi started to change things. The at times quite rigid man marking, extreme small numbers of attacking players and dense, deep defense were changed to a zonal marking structure with aggressive press, an offside trap and more competent possession play.

And one aspect of this play was the use of counterpressing when losing the ball. Back then most teams immediately dropped back after losing the ball; often the strikers just stayed passive and upfront, the others trying to drop in front of the defenders and the defenders not really advancing anyways. It very much depended on the match plan. In the legendary European games versus Real for instance they did use counterpressing because the opponent was overmatched, used man marking thus being forced into a bad structure when winning the ball and was vulnerable to being pressed.

In other games — for instance versus Bayern in the same years — Milan would only counterpress sometimes and often drop deeper immediately to not concede space to the opponent. The players around the ball would sometimes counterpress with the other players dropping deeper again or wait. Goal: Ensure stable defensive shape, then start regular pressing again. Goal: Stop or prolong the oppositional counter while creating the own defensive shape in the first two lines.

Goal: Stop the counter, win the ball, attack again by yourself! Sacchi basically used counterpress as a mean to continue pressing or to prevent counters — which is the main goal, of course. Also the players leaving their zone to counterpress would do it individually and not being followed by the other players of their team which again opened gaps.

In their press they often try to immediately force the opponents to long balls or intercept their passes. On the other hand they use it every single time when losing the ball in nearly every game. For him, counterpressing is the best playmaker and creates the best shots. Still, both — Klopp and Guardiola — heaved counterpress on a new level since ; together.

Their teams counterpressed more consistently, collectively and intensely than any other team since the Netherlands and perhaps even more organized with more details and additional motivations. Follow ReneMaric. The four classical game phases and where counterpressing is at.
