“The flaw I see…”
” They put in the best players in the world and then they don’t try to find out if the player is in the right position. The flaw I see is De Bruyne and Modrić in the hallways. You say to yourself: what is this bullshit? They are central players. To fuck them, I would opt for a 4-1-4-1. So that Modrić and De Bruyne are in very big trouble in the corridors and that the two number 8s can dive “explained the former coach of theAuxerre.
“The objective would be to steal the ball from them”
Furlan then added: I very often ask my players to play between the left or right central and the central back, because there is a very important flaw. When you put a defense to three, you have to put three central defenders of very high level. There, you have two full-backs and a single central back. You can attract them and put them in very big trouble. I had Julien Faussurier, who played offensive right lane, Gaëtan Perrin, who is able to finish and Gautier Hein. These players are capable, compared to what you teach them, of being very good at finishing. (…) The instruction would be to bring out the ball with the two pairs on the sides. You put them in difficulty with two very effective lane pairs. You also use the midfielders with the number 8s which will dive into the back of Hakimi and Cancelo. (…) The objective would be to steal the ball from them. You have eleven very high level players who are very good at attacking. How do you put them in really big trouble? On the defensive aspect “.
