Aitor Karanka: Countering High Full-backs

Aitor Karanka: Countering High Full-backs

At Jobs In Football, we try to connect users with the best learning resources available through all aspects of the game. When it comes to Coaching, there are a myriad of options in terms of online resources, but why not learn from the very best? Our partners at CV Academy provide exactly this, with courses delivered from the best minds at the elite levels of the game.


In this instalment, Aitor Karanka presents a match preparation session he used as a Premier League head coach with Middlesbrough in the lead up to a game against Arsenal.


The session prepares a team to defend and counter-attack against a side set up in a 1-4-2-3-1 formation that plays with high full-backs. 



To view the rest of Karanka's Coaching Course, as well as courses from other elite coaches, head to the CV Academy.
