Pressing means that you go ahead,” he faces one of his players.
“Tambakti, Messi has the ball in the middle of the field and you’re still in defense. Do you want someone else to go and press him? Take out your phone and take a picture with Messi if you want! If you’re in front of the defense, when Messi has the ball you have to chase it”, continues the coach.
“We’re good with the ball. Did you see what they did? Don’t you feel like we can turn it around? Argentina’s are playing relaxed. Come on guys, this is a World Cup. Give it your all! Kanno was fantastic, so everyone be like him. Let’s go now!”, closes the coach in the record, which quickly spread through Twitter.
