Sir Alex Ferguson and Jos‚ Mourinho are two of the world's top coaches, yet their tactics and systems are very different. This book describes the 4-4-2 system Ferguson uses with Manchester United and the 4-3-3 formation Mourinho has successfully employed at Chelsea and Inter Milan. Each of their preferred formations is covered in great detail including an insight into each system and how and why the key players are used to create the greatest advantage for the team. When new players are introduced the dynamics of the system change and this book shows you how these top managers adjust their teams to gain the result they need. This book will take you inside the minds of these two tactical wizards.
Every system of play has strengths and weaknesses. The challenge for each coach is to play to your strengths and attack the weaknesses of the other team, while leaving as few openings as possible for the opponent. 4-4-2 vs 4-3-3 describes how these systems of play match-up against each other and how Ferguson and Mourinho made adjustments to maximize their effectiveness.
Do players fit the system or does the coach determine the system depending on the players at his disposal? The qualities and roles of players like Didier Drogba, Frank Lampard, John Terry and Petr Chech in Chelsea's 4-3-3 and Ryan Giggs, Christiano Ronaldo, David Beckham, Roy Keane and Wayne Rooney in Manchester United's 4-4-2 are all discussed.
Whether your team plays a 4-4-2, 4-3-3 or some other formation, this unique insight into two of the world's best coaches and their tactical thinking will help you while training your own team and preparing a game plan for upcoming opponents.
