When it comes to winning the ball back attackers, who are mainly there to score goals, are as central to the plan as any defensive player on the pitch.

Info on the Pass
Info on the pass is a coaching term used to encourage players to communicate when passing the ball.
When making a pass, the player passing the ball should give information to the receiver. For example:
“Man on!” This means a player is threatening the receiving player from behind.
“Time!” This means player with the ball has enough time and space to receive the ball unopposed.
“Turn!” This instructs the receiving player to turn in the opposite direction to switch play or move forward with the ball.
