In this pressing session players aggressively press to win the ball back quickly. The focus is on quick pressing and counter pressing to win the ball back. It coaches players to understand the principles of winning the ball back and exploiting space
Look for players understanding the right body shape for pressing and reacting to the triggers that say “press”. Communication is key between players when they see the triggers to “go” and understand when to “hold”.
A key element of a pressing game is the ability to accelerate and slow down with mental skills to help quick reactions when possession is lost and pressing is needed to win the ball back within six seconds.
