Soccer Team Tactics

Played for several teams in Greek professional leagues. At the age of 29 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 6 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) and FC Barcelona Training Sessions - 160 Practices from 34 Tactical Situations.

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 Borussia Dortmund 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 Borussia Dortmund and supporting training sessions in this book and the Jurgen Klopp’s Defending Tactics book (other part of this book set).


The tactical analysis diagrams are very clear and simple to understand with supporting description and coaching assessments.
The sessions and practices are are presented with clear simple to understand diagrams supported with objective, description, coaching points and variations/progressions.

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to Learn Klopp's 4-2-3-1 Defending Tactics, Each Player’s Responsibilities, Positioning & Movement With Every Possible Phase of Play!
