Football Manager 2022 Tactics - Slot 4-2-3-1 Feyenoord // FM22 Tactic
Arne Slot uses 1-4-3-3 mainly in European Cups. In other matches he is faithful to the 1-4-2-3-1 formation.

Slot's Feyenoord is a classic positional game with obvious inspiration from Guardiola's style, although it must be said that in the ball possession phase it is the movement of the players that is crucial to free up space between the lines.

Slot does not want a slow build-up of action. Feyenoord's play is vertical, fast and risky. The ball is moved quickly behind the opponent's lines.

They like to play in tight spaces, keep a narrow defensive structure, while maintaining a complete and wide structure in the second line, ready for a positional attack at any phase.

The structure for building action in the first phase of play is largely based on the two Wing-Backs (Pedersen, Malacia) who stay behind the opponent's first line of pressure. Both feel comfortable in the center of the pitch playing as Inverted Wing-Backs, but they can also maintain width. They line up high while the two central defenders split (Senesi, Trauner) making the goalkeeper partner the ball in a temporary back three.

In an organised positional attack Slot's team does an excellent job of covering the different sectors of the pitch by always positioning themselves with a view to switching to counter-pressing if they lose the ball.

Overloads on the wings make this much easier for them. If they lose the ball they usually have a number of players in that area who immediately start pressing and often regain possession high up in the rivals' half.

It is noteworthy that Feyenoord's players position themselves close to their rivals, but only sufficiently so that they have space to receive and quickly play the winning ball.
