APOEL: What changes in “Archangelos”… with Gaiego

Must read

Differences and similarities with Sa Pinto

ΑΠΟΕΛ: Τι αλλαζει στον «Αρχαγγ ελο»… Γκιγο /></p>
<p>David Gaiego era and officially at APOEL, with the Spanish coach signing a contract until May 2025. The leaders of the “blue and yellow” gave the keys to the now former Anorthosis coach, having been convinced by the work he showed this year in the Famagusta team .</p>
<p>So based on what we watched from him in the 2023-2024 season, as well as information we obtained from those more involved in the field… we can say that significant changes are expected in the way the champions play.</p >
<p>The 52-year-old puts a lot of emphasis on high pressing, which he does regardless of the opponent. Unlike Sa Pinto who approached each match individually, the Iberian coach showed that he is not influenced by the opponent. A more typical example is the way Anorthosis faced Aris this year, a highly aggressive team. Even if it didn't work out, we keep the courage and faith in his plan.</p>
<p>He wants his teams to excel in possession, playing dominant football. In attack phase he chose both the 4-4-2 formation and the 4-2-3-1 formation, while the refugee club came forward in various ways. Either by building up from behind, or with long balls aimed mainly at Gassama.</p>
<p>Long balls are something we saw to a great extent in this year's APOEL as well, with Kvilitaia being the main target, which is one of his commons with the Portuguese. In addition, both defend with a 4-4-2 formation, showing significant stability in the rear guard, keeping the lines close. Particularly important are their common characteristics due to the fact that several players were kept.</p>
<p>Beyond the competitive aspect, perhaps the biggest difference between the two coaches is in character, since Mr. Gaiego is clearly considered calmer. Much calmer than the Portuguese, while in failures he used to come forward, taking responsibility without… much much.</p>
<p>In short, in the tactical part there are differences between the two coaches, but these are not taken for granted. night, with the biggest difference probably being in their character.</p>
