Alfred Schreuder took over Hoffenheim during this summer after Julian Nagelsmann left the club and joined RB Leipzig. Hoffenheim finished last season in the ninth position and so they won’t take part in any European competition this season. Considering this, Schreuder and his team can totally focus on the Bundesliga.
Nagelsmann took over the Kraichgauer in February 2016 and rescued them from relegation. In the following seasons, they were among the best teams of the Bundesliga and finished fourth, third and ninth respectively. So, Schreuder took over a team which already showed during the last three campaigns that they are a side with a lot of potential and quality.
This tactical analysis will show Schreuder’s career so far, conclude the tactics and the philosophy of his previous team where he was the head coach and use a pre-season friendly to examine how Hoffenheim might will play in this season.
