FILM: The right fit? Assessing managerial style

Managerial style is analysed in this second analytical film from OptaPro, with particular focus paid to Arsène Wenger, Rafael Benitez and Tony Pulis.

Metrics assessing directness, patience and width are used to assess how these mangers set up their teams to use the ball.

Defensive pressure (PPDA, first coined by Colin Trainor) is also applied to evaluate how these managers' teams press the ball when not in possession.

The analysis was conducted by Sam Gregory.
