CorSera: Concerns within the club over Giampaolo’s tactical approach

By Oliver Fisher -

There are doubts within the club as to whether the 4-3-3 is the right system for AC Milan moving forward, a report claims.

Marco Giampaolo was named as the new head coach over the summer and many expected him to stick with his preferred 4-3-1-2 formation as seen at Empoli and Sampdoria.

That was indeed the system that was worked on in preseason, but it all changed when the Rossoneri failed to register a single shot on target against Udinese in the opening game of the season.

Giampaolo told Sky Italia after the game (via Football Italia) that he was considering scrapping the 4-3-1-2 in favour of a 4-3-3.

Now it appears the change is ready to take place, with a number of outlets reporting that a formation with wingers will be used against Inter on Sunday.

Giampaolo swapped to a 4-3-3 at half time in the game against Hellas Verona last weekend, replacing Lucas Paqueta with Ante Rebic to ease the transition.

However, a report from il Corriere della Sera on Friday (via MilanNews) states that there are people within the club who have concerns about the new formation, which Gennaro Gattuso used for the vast majority of last season.
