Jesse Marsch once referred to him as his right hand man. Now the former Red Bull freestyler is reuniting with Marsch as a member of his RB Salzburg backroom staff.
Bertini, whose official title was ‘performance analyst’, did a ton of work analyzing video and editing video for coaches to use in group setting and individually with players. The video analysis played a key part in the Red Bulls match preparations.
Once game and training footage comes in – the Red Bulls tape and evaluate just about everything they do – Bertini splices and tags any action that could be useful to the staff. Often, Marsch says, he finds things nobody was looking for. Those insights help the coaching staff plan and run two to three film sessions per week. The players also have access to stations with clips targeted to their position and role.Ben Baer / MLSsoccer.com / How video analysis helps the New York Red Bulls hone the high press
Bertini filled an important role at the club and it will be interesting to see who inherits the role.
