Football Manager 2022 Tactics - Diego Simeone's 4-4-2 Defensive Masterclass


Diego Simeone, a manager which is very well known for his style of play. He plays what some would describe as negative football, a game style played to wind up the opposition and rattle the players.

This 442 is a defensive masterpiece, with the midfielders defending fairly narrow meaning in some situations you almost have a back 8. This tactic is super hard for other teams to break down, and partner that alongside time wasting, tactical fouls and you have a tactic which no one wants to face.

Do not feel like you wont be able to score goals tho! as with this tactic it also is lethal on the counter attack with its direct passing approach you will see a variety of balls being played creating tons of chances on the break.

We tested this tactic with Diego's current and former teams he has managed.

Test 1 - Riverplate



Test 2- Atletico Madrid



I have also left a screenshot below of the tactic but please do watch the video at the start of
this page for a more in depth breakdown of this tactic.
