    As a United fan I can not complemate within my mind how well Klopp has done with Liverpool, strategically the best side in the league, if it wasn't for Man City last year's league title would be in the bag, hats off to them, they have got the best of us after years, there would not be any United without Liverpool

      Football was developed in the streets. It was banned in the 1300's in England because of broken windows. In the modern era Brazilian football also developed it's style from the street culture.

      Monarchy 07 then it’s really easy for your players to beat the press.
      Another way is having your primary playmaker dropping deep I.e de Bruyne in man city often drops deep to receive the ball when the team is under pressure cause of his superb passing range so he can easily find spaces as the offensive team is trying to press defensive line.

    This video is not correct. Gegenpressing is not standard pressing. Gegenpressing only comes into play if a team loses the ball and immediately wants to regain possession. This is conceptually very different to standard pressing when the opponent has he ball and is building up from the defense line.

  • Rohanınoglu
    Rohanınoglu Year ago

    Fatih Terim used this tactic in 1996-2000. This tactic has been very successful those years. Galatasaray won the UEFA Cup in 2000 and son the UEFA Super Cup with Mircea Lucescu
    ✅UEFA Cup 🇪🇺
    ✅League Title 🇹🇷(×4)
    ✅TSYD Cup 🇹🇷(×3)❕Trophy got up
    ✅National Cup 🇹🇷(×2)
    ✅Presidency Cup 🇹🇷(×2)❕Trophy got up
    İn Total(96-00,02-04,11-13,17-present day):
    ✅UEFA Cup 🇪🇺
    ✅League Title 🇹🇷(×7)
    ✅TSYD Cup 🇹🇷(×3)❕ Trophy got up
    ✅Turkish Super Cup 🇹🇷 (×2)
    ✅National Cup 🇹🇷(×2)
    ✅Presidency Cup 🇹🇷(×2)❕ Trophy got up
    So Fatih Terim a legend for Galatasaray

    It reminds me of the full court press in basketball. You similarly see players who just have no idea what to do in those situations.

    I saw Tottenham doing this against Man city in Autumn 2016 they beat Man city 2-0 and it was the best game of football i've ever seen.

  • tdyerwestfield - OFTW OG

    Klopp's gegenpressing tactics have developed further now at Liverpool, with 2 men pressing at once, one or three players shadowing behind the pressers and the player in the 6 role cutting passing lanes, forcing a long ball forward, in which Van Dijk or Lovren are man marking ready to head clear.

    It was Jack Charlton's mantra as well 'put em under pressure' it does not sound as sexy as Gegenpressing though particularly in a gruff Gerodie accent.
    It is one of the reasons why John Aldridge scored so few goals for Ireland as he had to close down his opponents.

      Btw, it would be called "counter-pressing". Not that hard to figure out. Igor, keep your humor up, man!

  • Darren Jeffers
    Darren Jeffers Year ago

    It's a nice video. Well done. I don't believe it is correct in the respect Liverpool targeted Rose as being the weakest full back in possession. If familiar with Klopp's tactics at Dortmund he usually overloaded the right hand side and carried this in his first couple seasons to Liverpool..............Firmino converted from left to centre and came from this angle when pressing. The press was supported by Lallana (right of three in centre) and henderson naturally right biased with Clyne mobile it was a right heavy press. Absolutely nothing to do with Danny Rose. .
