The former midfielder, one of the greatest passers in the history of the game, explains his commitment to the possession game and discusses the strategies he has employed against both a high press and, as is more often the case in his current role, a deep-lying low block. He talks about the necessity of numerical superiority, both in possession and out of possession, and the importance of winning the second ball. He also reflects on the change in mentality he has looked to develop in his players – one where they treasure the ball rather than play in fear of it.
