Thank you for the comprehensive answer!First of all, I want to reminds you that Gegenpressing (or Counter Pressing) is a tactic where you attack your opponent, loses the ball (usually in wide area of the pitch), win the ball as high as possible, start a quick counter attack.
my input is:
1. Opposition Instructions:
gegenpressing is mainly about pressing opponent's fullbacks, centre backs, and defensive midfielders. this achieved by closing down DR,DL,DC,DM,WBL, and WBL. you might want to tackle them harder if your players (especially Wingers, Attacking Midfielders, and Striker have about 10 or 12 in tackling) as for the rest of the opposition, it might be better to just mark them and show them to their weaker foot. your OI is (and will) expose your defense from left and right.
2. Team Shape:
you might want to move your Right Central Midfielder to Central Attacking Midfielder spot in Supporting Attacking Midfielder role. This will allow you to press the Defensive Midfielder and having an extra man at the end of the cross. if you want to play an authentic Klopp's Gegenpressing, you might want to the Wingers as Inside Forwards at attacking role. and plays Inverted Wing Backs or Support Full backs. Klopp plays Mane and Salah that is a natural attacking Inside Forwards to cut inside and attack on-the-ball fullbacks. as for the fullback, Klopp plays Inverted Wing Backs or Fullbacks depends on the opposition. the IWB is good against team with solid midfield that press high, but the Support Full Backs is usually better since they help the pressing and stays just behind the Inside Forwads to cross.
3. Team Instruction:
put the Width into Balanced. so your team have more flexibility in when and where to play, this also open up options since your team won't focus solely in the middle of the park and able to send a long ball out wide to stretch the play. push your defense line up and your closing down in the match (or permanently) if you think your player doesn't press fast enough, Work Ball Into Box will help your Inside Forwards open up spaces for overlapping Fullbacks and intentionally losing the ball closer to the box and in a more dangerous position. Klopp usually exploits his midfield to retain control while the flank is looking for spaces.
Lastly, you might want to reconsider your tackling approach as Get Stuck In without good tacklers will only result in cards, and Gegenpressing's tackles mostly come from the Flanks that doesn't have naturally high tackles.
Hope this helps!
Thank you for the good answer!!!Here's an interesting illustration from a Marcelo Bielsa masterclass. Being one of the most influential managers ever, he's well known for his extreme pressing style.
On the left column you see potential formations your opposing teams could line up in. On the right is the formation we should ideally use to make sure we have maximum cover, which will make pressing easier. All these formations make it so your opponents will have a hard time out-numbering you anywhere on the pitch. Bielsa and Guardiola like to have players who can play multiple positions, so that they can make adjustments to their formation mid-game if so needed.
Keep in mind that even they don't employ all these formations. Dramatically changing your formation mid-season will only hurt you. Let's for example just pick the three most common formations and see what we need to counter them. 4-2-1-3 (aka 4-2-3-1), 4-3-3 and 4-2-4 (aka 4-4-2). On the right column we can see we would ideally play 4-3-3, 4-2-1-3 and 3-4-3 to counter these formations. So I would typically just train these three formations as this will probably line up well against 90% of teams in our league. I also try to make sure my team can shapeshift into any of these formations mid-game by having flexible players.
