Marcelo Bielsa's Influence on Top Coaches and what they Say...
Pep Guardiola

Pep Guardiola

"My admiration for Marcelo Bielsa is huge because he makes the players much, much better.

"Still, I didn't meet one guy, a former player from Marcelo Bielsa who speaks badly about him. They are grateful for his influence on their careers in football.

"He helped me a lot with his advice. Whenever I speak with him, I always feel like he wants to help me.

"It is important for me to say this about Marcelo because it doesn't matter how many titles he had in his career. We are judged by that – how much success we have, how many titles we have won. But that is much less influential than how he has influenced football and his football players.

"That is why, for me, he is the best coach in the world. I am looking forward to seeing him in Lille next season. I am pretty sure his influence on their team, their club and their players will be huge – amazing.

Mauricio Pochettino

"He is one of the best managers in the world.

"There is no doubt that he had an effect on me. He helped me to mature when I was starting my career at Newell's, he helped me in the national team, and he's continued to help me in my coaching career.

Jorge Sampaoli

"We’re followers of Bielsa and of the way he plays the game, but comparisons are unfair, because we’re talking about one of the best.

"People always think that by hiring one of us, they’re getting a Bielsa clone, but Marcelo is one of a kind.

Gerardo Martino

"I’ve always been a fan of Bielsa, who was just starting out as a coach as my playing career was drawing to a close.

"Straight away I warmed to his personality and I take great pride in being compared to him.

What the Coaches Say on the "Importance of Transition Play"
Diego Simeone

Diego Simeone

"I am always enthusiastic and when I came, I said I wanted to rediscover the essence of the club: An Atlético team that was always aggressive, intense, competitive, counter-attacking and fast… I think that’s what we’ve been giving.”

This book includes Simeone's Transition Tactics with Sessions on how to practice them.

Pep Guardiola

Pep Guardiola

"I want my players chasing the ball like (dogs chase) dog bones.”

“You cannot be brilliant when you disappear when you don’t have the ball. It’s impossible. Football is a connection between what you have with the ball and without the ball.”

This book includes Guardiola's Transition Tactics with Sessions on how to practice them.

Jurgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp

"The best moment to win the ball is immediately after your team just lost it.”. Football is about emotion and speed. It’s a transition game“

“If you win the ball back high up the pitch and close to the goal, it is only one pass away a really good opportunity most of the time. No playmaker in the world can be as good as a good counter-pressing situation.”

This book includes Klopp's Transition Tactics with Sessions on how to practice them.

Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho

"Transitions have become crucial. When the opponent is organised defensively it is very difficult to score. The moment the opponent loses the ball can be the time to exploit the opportunity of someone being out of position. Similarly when we lose the ball we must react immediately.”

“Everybody says that set plays win most games but I think it is more about transitions.”

This book includes Mourinho's Transition Tactics with Sessions on how to practice them.

Claudio Ranieri

Claudio Ranieri

"Today, some complain that Leicester lose too many balls. But that's only natural, when your team plays at the speed of light.“

“I give my strikers freedom to attack and cut across the lines, as long as we immediately return to a 4-4-2 as soon as the ball is lost.”

This book includes Ranieri's Transition Tactics with Sessions on how to practice them.

Athanasios Terzis

Athanasios Terzis

I played for several teams in the Greek professional leagues. At the age of 29 I stopped playing and focused on studying football coaching. I have been head coach of several semi-pro football teams in Greece and worked as a technical director in the Academies of DOXA Dramas (Greek football league, 2nd division).

I have written 7 other books including: FC Barcelona: A Tactical Analysis - Attacking and Defending. (English, Spanish, Japanese & Korean),
Jose Mourinho’s Real Madrid: A Tactical Analysis - Attacking and Defending . (English & Japanese), FC Barcelona Training Sessions - 160 Practices from 34 Tactical Situations and Jurgen Klopp's Attacking and Defending Tactics.

Analysing games tactically is a great love and strength of mine. I think teams have success only when they prepare well tactically.

I have watched Juventus in many of their league and Champions league matches for the last few years and all of them during the 2013- 2014 season. Over 1000 hours of research has enabled me to present a full tactical blueprint of Juventus with supporting training sessions in this book and the attacking book (other part of this book set).

Jed C. Davis

Jedd C. Davis

Jed is the assistant manager and head of analysis for Oxford University Centaurs and has worked with various youth players throughout Europe.

He has studied the methods used at FC Barcelona, Liverpool FC, Swansea FC, Villarreal CF, AFC Ajax and a number of teams developing a particular fascination with the possession based philosophies in football as a way of controlling and winning games.

Tiki-Taka football is a style of football popularised by Spain and Barcelona during the decade ending 2010 and is part of a philosophy in football that has existed right from the game’s very beginnings: a way of controlling the game through possession and positional systems.

Jed Davies has been fortunate enough to speak in great lengths with a number of coaches who work at the clubs who currently advocate the possession based philosophy and in doing so, has developed a clear understanding of what the tiki-taka philosophy is and how it can be developed through purpose designed training sessions.

A train of thought has been developed that football that is played in this way is developed through it’s ‘form’: positional systems, attitudes to building up possession etc. Davies therefore has proposed that football tactics should be designed around the dictum “form follows process”, a way of perfect football within an adaptive structure where the structure and positional system is the agent of change, rather than the players themselves.
