Hi guys, i wanted to find out how you would make a striker press backwards, so not pressing towards the defence but creating a 10 man barrier between the goal and where the ball is.

As soon as the opposition's CM has the ball i want the strikers to press them, but when it gets passed back to the defence, i don't want my strikers to press, instead i want them to create a barrier in their own half

can anyone give any suggestions or advice??

Set player to close own in own half and change he mentality to defensive also dont allow him to have any creative freedom

Not sure if that would help but i presume it would

But when doing that, the strikers won't go up and make runs, the closing down in own half means in the half that they're in.

Im trying to emulate Gladbach's tactic
