Availability: In stock



Book Summary:

This book focuses on teaching and implementing the 5-3-2 pattern of play which uses the sweeper as a fundamental part of its defense. The authors teach the need to be flexible, versatile, and to change schemes according to the opponent, the match, the individual players, and ever-changing situations, never sticking obstinately to one vision of play. Play systems should not be rigid schemes on paper, they must come to life on the soccer field. Fascetti explains the tactics and teaches how to implement the 5-3-2 pattern through a detailed coaching program, with a sequence of exercises and drills designed to develop in the players the nexessary automatic movements.


Eugenio Fascetti is an old school Italian soccer tactician who bossed the Bari side for a record 190 League games over six seasons despite his past as Coach of hated rivals Lecce. Fascetti, who replaced Giuseppe Materazzi mid-season, immediately tasted relegation but brought the club straight back to Serie A where they remained for a further three soccer campaigns.

He was also responsible for the unveiling of Bari soccer sensation Antonio Cassano.
