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
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).
