Pep Guardiola – ‘Positional Game’
In the book: ‘TAC-TAC: Training Pep’s Fútbol using Tactical Periodization’ we show some SubPrinciples from Manchester City’s coach.
In this related to Build Up of the Offensive Organization, Pep Guardiola wants:
- All players must have their positions perfectly defined as the game evolves.
- Each player must position himself in the appropriate spaces in relation to the ball.
- All players must be positioned diagonnaly in relation to the ball and be mobile at all times.
- Players must understand that even if not directly involved in the play they are helping the team.
- Have players in their positions is paramount upon loss of possession.
- The Keeper is involved playing outside the goal, always available for a diagonal passing lane supporting the game continuity.

‘6v6 with 5 Offensive Jokers’
