Football Manager 2021 Tactics - 4-4-2 Ralf Rangnick "The Professor"
The tactical idea is the usual one of the 4-4-2 in question, high pressure and constant aggression on the second balls. The game will develop in a very direct way, trying to turn the game around after a positive transition.

Ball games on the ground from the defense and long distribution of the goalkeeper seems a no sense but in reality it helps the defense to better manage the ball if it gets into possession.

It is a 4-4-2 flat, the roles attributed to the players will determine their movement on the pitch.

As you can see the distribution of the goalkeeper is on "make passes to bypass the opponent's defense", this check favors pressing on the second balls which according to the settings must be effective.

Get the tactics learned correctly.

WP must be a technical and fast player but also with passing qualities. You can also adapt a playmaker in this role

The right wing, on the other hand, is an old-fashioned wing, right foot advice.

DF has to be fast and aggressive if she also has size, all the better.

AF I prefer it slippery, you won't need a corrazzier body but its aggressiveness is important.

Do not adapt BWM players, or they already are or buy them, will be essential for a correct recovery of the ball.

The defenders, better if fast

Use the shouts to affect the morale of the players and after your goal ask them to concentrate
