TFA Podcast: The tactical evolution of defenders in the post-Pep Guardiola era
In this episode of the TFA Podcast, host Adam Scully is joined by Rangers Academy analyst Caio Miguel as the pair discuss the role of defenders in possession since the great Pep Guardiola revolution of 2009.
The duo take a look at goalkeepers, fullbacks and central defenders, speaking about the development of each position, the player profiles needed to fulfil each function, why functionality at the back is so important for positional play, the purpose of functionality with the backline, what the future holds for each position and how this all relates to relationism too.
