Style of Play

No team wants to build from the back and play a possession-oriented style more than Perez Zeledon.

The objective is to go from the goalkeeper to the opposing goal. Ball to feet, play the way you face, one-touch passes, all the possession cliches are utilized when Perez Zeledon is on the ball. Direct passes are not launched, they are chipped with precision. 

Every pass has its purpose.

In the final third, quick, 1-2 combinations and runs off the ball generate most of the scoring chances. Interchanging play between the striker and attacking midfielders wreak havoc on opposing center backs.

In short, Perez Zeledon wants to be the Manchester City of Costa Rica. The problem is the roster is closer to Sheffield United’s.
