GdS: Giampaolo to persist with 4-3-1-2 and Suso as trequartista

By Oliver Fisher -

Marco Giampaolo will reportedly continue to play Suso as a trequartista, despite concerns over his ability to adapt to the role.

The Spaniard was heavily linked with a move away from the Rossoneri during the summer due to Giampaolo’s arrival and his preference to play a 4-3-1-2 formation.

La Gazzetta dello Sport even stated that Fiorentina were interested in a move for Suso, while Roma and Lyon were also linked by a number of sources throughout August.

A number of impressive performances in preseason persuaded Giampaolo to continue playing Suso in behind the front two, however so far in Serie A this season he has not had much joy.

The former Liverpool man did get an assist against Brescia at home but aside from that has struggled to show the same sharpness as he did in preseason.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport – as cited by MilanNews – Giampaolo is determined to continue with the 4-3-1-2 system and will persist with playing Suso in the trequartista role.

This is in large part due to the fact that Lucas Paquetà has not convinced, though Giacomo Bonaventura and Hakan Calhanoglu are possible candidates should things continue to look bad.

For the time being though, Suso’s spot in the starting XI is safe.
