Bielsa's approach is based on football as a collective sport, in a team sense. He believes that a team's success is based on the collective effort of all its members. He has a very clear idea of the process by which the team moves the ball and what the roles are of all players:
The fundamental tool that this system gives to the team is the initiative. The team does not move only because it must but it moves because it wants to. In the other hand, the team does not get the ball because it must, but because it wants to. The person who gives the ball to the team has the courage to do so. The person who receives the ball is not receiving it because he must, but because he wants to.
