With possession becoming an obssession for the modern team, sides are loathe to giving away the ball at all costs and thus this necessitates being able to play out from the back even under pressure.There is increased demand for goalkeepers to be comfortable on the ball and for defenders and full backs to be adept at picking up spaces to receive the ball and pass between waves of pressure to locate midfielders who are open. Likewise there is responsibility placed on CDM's to facilitate the movement of the ball from defensive third into the attacking third.
