The counter attacking tactic i need

High guys, i was looking for someone to help me create a counter attacking tactic revolved around Hannover 96, Their manager, Mirko Slomka helped them avoid Relegation with 4 games to go 2 seasons ago. The next season he employed a counter attacking system, that got them to 4th position, i want to emulate the tactics that he used to achieve what he did.

Formation and Playing Style

The formation that he played was a 4-4-2, you could say a 4-2-2-2 (2 CDM). The playing style was simple, pass the ball to feet, play from defence to attack, as quick as possible. Using short precise passing sometimes using accurate direct balls, and then scoring in the process.

I was hoping that someone would help me create this tactic, as i do not have lots of knowledge and help me with it, additional information is below, as i will provide a link for anyone that is willing to help me
