N ot so long ago, Julian Nagelsmann turned up in the Munich suburb of Giesing for a job interview with a difference: Pep Guardiola, too, dropped in on him, offering kind words and a nice pat on the back.
He preferred the clear path laid out for him in Kraichgau to the glamour of Bavaria. Nagelsmann promotion was fast-tracked to the first-team job in February , to a combination of universal disbelief and doubt.
He was 28 years old at the time, and the team sponsored by software magnate Dietmar Hopp — 17th place in the table, five points adrift of the relegation play-off spot — were well on their way to a first abstieg descent from the top flight.
The idea has turned out a pretty good one though. The rather straightforward win against a Leverkusen team was depleted within six minutes at the BayArena — TSG old boy Kevin Volland brought down Kerem Demirbay with an ill-timed tackle outside the box — lifted unbeaten Hoffenheim into fourth spot in the table, four points behind leaders Bayern.
Their unexpected position chimes with the main story of the season so far, the surprising rise up the table by lesser lights such as newly-promoted RB Leipzig second , Hertha third , Köln fifth , Frankfurt seventh and Freiburg eighth at the expense of the establishment.
At this level, the quality of the players at your disposal will ensure that you play well within a good tactical set-up — if the psychological condition is right.
Nagelsmann was forced to the sidelines early on. At Hoffenheim, he worked as assistant coach of the first team before taking charge of the second side and finishing a degree in sport science.
This is because when the ball is forced deeper than the pressing team is willing to move and is in an area where the pressing team feels comfortable not pressing.
The direction of the press can be horizontal, vertical and even diagonal depending on the compactness of the opposition team. Backwards pressing is an effective tool when the player chooses to the press the player with the ball from his blindside, even though the ball has already past his line of press.
For example, in a system, if the ball passes the forward line of press and yet one of the frontmen chooses to run towards the back of the player with the ball to press him, then that is called the backward press.
It yields higher chances of success as the ball holding player usually remains unaware of the onrushing presser.
The flaw in this philosophy lies in the fact that each opponent is followed so the pressing player becomes reactionary and thus, his positioning and movement can be easily manipulated by the opponent by dragging him or switching positions with others.
Once the opponent player leaves that space, the presser returns to his starting position. The idea here is to press the opponent with the ball while the rest of the team closes down the available spaces.
The weakness in this system is as only one player steps up to press in his spatial zone, he can easily be bypassed by numerical overloads of the attacking team.
There is no active pressure on the ball carrier, but rather a space controlling around the ball by shifting towards it in a block. Only when the ball is played into the tight spaces inside the block, the team would aggressively press to win the ball.
The difference between the two systems is that in man oriented zonal marking, the opponent player and the space around him space is primary, while space oriented zonal-marking prioritizes the reference point and space around the ball.
The key to it is for the pressing team to approach the ball-retention process in a way to prevent any possible switch in the underloaded space on that pitch as otherwise, the system fails.
This requires great intelligence and coordination as it can involve a blend of man marking, zonal marking, blocking passing lanes, space control, etc.
Pressing allows a team if executed properly to control the rhythm of the game. The defensive structure is what the offense tries to break and to do so it accordingly structures itself.
So technically, pressing if applied smartly can cause the team in possession to alter their shape, positioning and structure in order to evade it.
Thus, it can be subtly used to control the rhythm of a match. Counter-pressing is pressing the ball in transition from offense to defense with an active attempt to move the cycle of the phases of play in the opposite direction.
It is a match control tool that allows the team to skip the defensive organization phase and rather force the opposition to transition defensively and thus render them vulnerable.
It replicates the role of a brilliant playmaker. If the counter pressing team wins the ball in its defensive transition successfully from the opposition who were about to be in an offensive transition with it, then in such a case the team that loses the ball will lose its shape.
As the side was going to attack, prior to surrendering the ball, and hence that would also be the perfect situation for the ball-winning team to hit them on the break with a brisk counter-attack.
An important aspect, just like in pressing is positioning for counter-pressing. If the team in possession positions themselves in strategically important positions prior to losing the ball, then they would be in a better structure to counter-press and win the ball and initiate attacks.
Thus, poorly positioned teams upon losing the ball react to how the opponent shapes their attack rather than determining how they shall foray forward.
Counterpressing emerges as an effective tool in controlling the tempo. The basic idea of positioning should be to occupy small spaces of the field in a compact manner while remaining as far from each other as possible and yet maintaining connectivity with the area.
When the opponent wins the ball, they should be forced away from the center of the field and towards the touchline or backwards, limiting their space, ability to turn and also reducing their passing options.
This causes the transition to take longer or the ball to be won back. By suffocating the space around the ball, a turnover is forced.
In this system, the defenders always have access to the opponent, meaning they can directly challenge for the ball every time. It allows more space around the ball but leads to many more challenges and duels.
This, however, becomes disadvantageous when the opponent has excellent skilful 1v1 players.
