When Ralf Rangnick studies recent Manchester United matches Cristiano Ronaldo's opening goal at Villarreal should bring a smile to his face.
The high pressing of Fred to create the opportunity is a hallmark of teams coached by the German and there was a further element of a higher press in United's draw at Chelsea - Michael Carrick's second game in caretaker charge.
But United's new interim manager will find very few other examples of the gegenpressing tactic he is widely credited for in other clips he watches of his new side.
In many ways Rangnick is partly responsible for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's demise, albeit inadvertently.
He has helped shape the football of two of United's current biggest rivals in Liverpool and Chelsea, which perhaps contributed towards the Norwegian this season attempting to move away from a counter-attacking style that had brought moderate success during his tenure.
Both Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel credit the 63-year-old Rangnick for inspiring their own versions of gegenpressing, a high-octane ball-recovery tactic he has implemented with his teams since the 1980s.
After a modest playing career it was a chance meeting in his first role in the dugout, as player-coach of hometown club FC Viktoria Backnang, that led to gegenpressing.
Rangnick recounted: "Dynamo Kiev, the team of legendary coach Valeriy Lobanovskyi, were staying in a nearby training centre and needed easy opposition for a friendly.
"A few minutes in, when the ball had gone out for a throw-in, I had to stop and count their players. Did they have 13 or 14 men on the pitch?
"I had played against top teams before - we always lost against them, of course - but they had at least given you the occasional moment of breathing space. Kiev were the first team I had ever come up against who systematically pressed the ball.
"That was my football epiphany. I understood that there was a different way of playing."
From there Rangnick's philosophy was shaped and it would eventually take him back to Stuttgart, where he started the 1990s in charge of their under-19s before by the end of the decade becoming coach of the first team.
After a mixed time with the Bundesliga club, he dropped down a division and earned promotion back to the top flight in his first campaign at Hannover, before a spell at Schalke brought more success.
While Rangnick was sacked by Schalke,he dropped down to the third tier of German football with Hoffenheim, but it was not long before he was dining at the top table again.
Back-to-back promotions contributed towards Schalke bringing back their old boss, but he stepped down within 12 months citing a lack of energy to develop the team and club.
After a coaching career charting almost 30 years, Rangnick accepted a new challenge in 2012 when he took on the role of director of football at both Red Bull Salzburg and RB Leipzig.
Over the next seven years, the two clubs would enjoy enormous success and that is part of his attraction to United - he will move into a consultancy role at the end of this season.
In the meantime he is back in the dug-out for the first time since overseeing a campaign with Leipzig in 2018-19.
"My job - the job - is to improve players," Rangnick has previously said and given some of United's recent results, there is space for improvement and it will all begin with pressing.
