This Wise Words Wednesday is more for the coaches who want to learn a bit more about how professionals managers teach their academy kids how to play the game. This video is an instruction of when and how to press the ball defensively. The players have to learn the cues of when to press and when to drop off together, if you press too soon without the proper pressure on the ball, you can get out-played by crafty players. If pressed too late, the team can get into a situation where they are stretched and can be easily played in between the two banks of four from the midfielders to the defenders.
