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 Atl├ętico 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.
