Jurgen Klopp’s ft. Jamie Carragher & David Jones (MNF)

‘I LOVE THE GAME TOO MUCH!’

Football Philosophy of Jurgen Klopp:

‘COUNTER-PRESSING (GEGENPRESSING) IS THE BEST PLAYMAKER’.

Counter-pressing (gegenpressing) – win the ball back, high on the pitch and you are close to the goal, only at one pass to a good opportunity:

  • Lose the ball and press the opponent with the ball (chasing all over the pitch).
  • Mood to press; mood to recover the ball.
  • The player more close to the ball tries to press the ball.
  • If you stay really high they don’t play, they shoot the ball to attack.
  • Lose the ball and be wild boys.

‘CALM WITH THE BALL:

  • First of all: do not lose the ball, keep the ball, no reason for risk in some situations.
  • The target is to have the ball as long as possible.

‘SPLIT THE PITCH TO DEFEND’:

  • #9 and #10 have to split the pitch for us because we decide how big is the pitch we have to defend.
  • React when the ball is in the air (when opponent’s play long).
  • To defend really as a team we need somebody who gives you a sign (left side / right side whatever).
  • If they are playing in a specific side close the gap, #10 cannot let the #6 receive an easy ball and decide everything in his position).
  • Close the spaces in the middle and try to recover the ball in the sides.

‘COMPACTNESS’:

  • Always being compact in all situations. We need to have the all formation there.

FULL BACKS – ‘Be an Option’:

  • They play in half spaces, sometimes they have to play really high (they are the winger) other times the center midfielder.
  • The Rule is: be an option to get the pass or be protection for the other players.
