Pressing has the ability to expose defenders in possession, frustrate opposing teams, and create waves of attacking momentum that can help win games. This book studies top coaches like Pep Guardiola, Diego Simeone, Jurgen Klopp, Marceol Bielsa, Brendan Rodgers, Anson Dorrance, and Mauricio Pochettino, who may not have invented pressing, but have taken it to new levels by developing unique systems to suit the demands of the game today. In addition, they have successfully created team cultures in which players are prepared to go above and beyond for one another. Aimed at coaches of all levels, Modern Soccer Coach: Pressing offers a unique insight into the different areas that coaches must address when developing a successful pressing system, including developing play models, training methodology, player profiles, scouting systems, team culture and the philosophy of the coach.
