Coach Mick Hennigan explaining a tactical point

“High pressure defense is as much a frame of mind as it is tactical organization”

The progressive style of the training session you see, from start to finish, in High Pressure Team Defending is a testament to modern game and proponents of a progressive style of training that uses drills to replicate the situations players will face in actual games.

Let’s be honest, many coaches view high pressure defending as simply sending their forwards chasing the ball at full speed.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  If your players are not organized and don’t understand their roles, attempting a high pressure defense can simply leave holes open in midfield and at the back where the opposition can expose them with quick goal chances.


Having the correct attitude is critical in high pressure defending

Everyone raves at how good Barcelona are when in possession.  They love their quick style “Tika-Taka” style of moving the ball around the field.  However, an understated reason of Barcelona’s incredible success over the last few years has been their smothering style of defending.  Quite simply, this forces the opposition to turn the ball over and give possession back to Barcelona.

So when you see the statistics showing Barcelona had 65% of of the possession or 70+% of the possession, it’s not just because they are good at being in possession of the ball.  A critical part of those stats is because when the opposition do have possession of the ball, Barcelona force them to turn it over very quickly.

“Watch how EPL Champion coach works uses all his experience to motivate and push players to develop a winning attitude when defending”
