The team is long and no longer supports the four forwards: on Sunday against Inter the coach will strengthen the midfield (4-3-3) but he is also tempted by the “old” Diavolo system by stroking the 4-3-1-2
The mantra, up until the eve with Sassuolo, had always been this: “Changing the game system? I still think it’s not a problem of positions on the field also because we change them often.” What Stefano Pioli says is true. Or rather: it “was” true. His Milan, Pioli’s Milan, has always had a fluid tactical profile, not easy to pigeonhole. Halfbacks who lower themselves to build in the middle of the centre-backs, full-backs who enter the field and become assistant playmakers or even disguise themselves as centre-forwards, attacking midfielders who widen by exchanging with the wingers, midfielders who become attacking midfielders.
