Ralf Rangnick: Tactics, Formation, Style Of Play, Coaching Career, Trophies, Stats And Records

German manager Ralf Rangnick is a wonderful tactician who knows what he wants from his players and demands high-intensity football. Rangnick is often considered one of the best football managers and sporting directors. He has a vision which he instates in every player and the team he has coached. He has polished young German managers like Jürgen Klopp, Thomas Tuchel, Julian Nagelsmann, and Ralph Hasenhüttl.

He has a vast knowledge of the game and demands his players to play a certain type of high-intensity football. Rangnick is famous for mastering the Gegenpressing style of pressing where the team presses the opposition with high intensity after losing the ball. All the players close down the subject with the ball and try to regain possession as soon as possible.


Rather than regrouping after losing the ball, Rangnick demanded his players to close down in the opposition half and win the ball back. He likes to play attacking football and thinks that a game can only be won by scoring more goals than the opposition. Rangnick credits all his game knowledge to Valeriy Lobanovskyi who was the head coach of Dynamo Kyiv.
