AC Milan could be set for a return to the 4-3-1-2 system under Marco Giampaolo, a report claims, but it all depends on Krzysztof Piatek.
The Rossoneri failed to register a single shot on target in their first game of the season, and after that game Giampaolo told Sky Italia after the game that he is considering scrapping the 4-3-1-2.
However, La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews.it) then came out and said that Giampaolo was even considering the 4-3-2-1 formation last seen under Carlo Ancelotti.
That was the formation that we saw in Saturday’s win over Brescia, but the head coach’s long-term vision for the team is at this point unknown.
Tuesday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport – as cited by MilanNews – claims that a return to 4-3-1-2 could be on the cards, but only if Piatek proves he can perform in that role.
Another potential option is that Giampaolo could bet on Rafael Leao and Ante Rebic up top with Suso in support, and the Poland international as an option from the bench.
