VIDEO: How Zinedine Zidane Outwitted The Pressing Master

New, comments

Zidane showed the world he could produce tactical masterclasses when he felt like it in the 2016/17 season.


Kiyan Sobhani (@KiyanSo) and I have recently started a new youtube channel with Naguib Anam (@NaguibAnam) and Kartikay Khare (@kartikaykhare29) called The School of Real Madrid. The aim of our channel is to narrate and animate Real Madrid tactics, history, and other topics on a weekly basis.

Please subscribe to our YouTube channel and follow us on Twitter and Facebook if you like our content and consider supporting us on Patreon to ensure that we maintain our weekly production rate. If you pledge a certain amount per month, you can help us pick what topic to do next


This week’s School of Real Madrid video rolls back the clock to one of Zinedine Zidane’s finest tactical performances - Real Madrid’s 3-0 win over Sevilla in the Copa del Rey. Jorge Sampaoli, one of the best pressing coaches of all time, was taught a lesson in that very thing he was supposed to be so good at, and the likes of James Rodríguez, Casemiro, and Marcelo, played some of their best games that day.

Enjoy!
