Tactical drill oriented to use, when attacking, by the third man and useful to practice the way of defending it.
Do you know Liverpool’s Henderson Rondo? It is an interesting conditioning in order to reach a maximum pressure from the first pass.
To control the game pace we need the players to dominate the offensive tactical principals of delaying, change of pace etc.
The football coaches usually ask their players to play easy and safe once they win the ball back. For doing this, it is key to put the ball away from the zone where to win the ball back
Hexagonal rondo to work the switch of play, the players profiles and deciding before receiving the ball.
One of the constant aspects of the game is to play easy (the coach asks so many times for this) and be able to differentiate when to play with the farthest or with the intermediate players in order to overcome rivals (both attacking and defending).
When winning the ball back, we take it out of a pressing zone, we reorganize and we try to break a defensive line. All of this with the need for a a good body shape to advance on the field.
We adapt a rondo in order to practice the use of the third man and the free man as a microstructure to advance in the game.
The fact of facing offensive freedom (continuous decision making) to two defensive lines will develop multiple defensive tactical concepts
A good pressing and a defensive balance against the position game (Sarri, Guardiola, Nagelsman), with a rule which will make the offensive players to choose the right position in order to fix the defenders.
The objective is to move from the creation zone to the finishing zone. To avoid that the rivals could send the ball to your defenders back.
