Enrique’s approach to ball possession focuses more on constantly penetrating the opponent’s defensive zone rather than playing the ball deep and patiently.
Defensively their full backs get forward to intercept the opponent’s wingers and often force them backwards.
The approach to ball possession is mainly based on triangular combinations between central midfielder, defender and winger.
Wide triangles in the offensive third consisting of a full back, a striker and a suitable central midfielder are in turn crucial for developing possession of the ball in the opponent’s half and finalising actions.
