Abstract (englisch):

The aim of the study was to examine the impact of the positional role and the individuality on the technical match performance in professional soccer players.
From official match data of the Bundesliga season 2018/19, technical performance (short[<10 m]/medium[10-30 m]/long[>30 m] passes, dribblings, ball possessions) of all players who played during the season were analyzed (normative data). Five playing positions (center back, full back, central midfielder, wide midfielder, forward) were distinguished. As the contextual factor tactical formation is known to influence match performance, this parameter was controlled for. Further, those players who played at minimum four games in at least two different playing positions were included in the study sample (n = 13). The technical match performance of the players was analyzed in relation to the normative data regarding the extent to which the players either adapted or maintained their performance when changing the playing position.
When switching playing positions, positional role could explain 3-6% of the variance in short passes and ball possessions and 27-44% of the variance in dribblings, medium passes, and long passes. ... mehr
