Coaching Pressing Interview

Earlier this year I did an interview with Vin Blaine for his 'On The Sideline' podcast around the subject of Pressing. We talk about the book that I wrote in 2017 and specifically how coaches can move towards the level of detail required for the system to become effective at the highest level. We also discuss the best ways to train it, the most efficient ways to measure our progress, as well as identifying the importance of establishing a culture and a certain environment around the tactical system that compliments and reinforces messages on the training pitch.

Below is a clip from a recent Pressing workshop that I did with Modern Soccer Coach in the summer. This particular segment addresses the theme of how teams today must be adaptable defensively. With the game evolving to where teams have multiple ways to build and rotate players, surely the next step for a team defensively is to be fluid and adaptable, as opposed to be equipped with one set solution from the coaching staff.
