- Implications for training:
- The Disorganized Defense situations that follow Disorganized Attack Phases are not very trainable at a tactical level, since it is very difficult to anticipate where they will happen and where our players will be to try to recover it after.
- It is very important to train the Disorganized Defense Phase in a contextualized way, as an intermediate phase that unites a previous moment and a later moment, and not in isolation.
- The mental aspect takes on enormous importance in this phase, since the two key elements to achieve success will be: the position, understood from the anticipation, and the player’s attitude.
