AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli wants his side to remain unpredictable and he has been trying a new formation in training, a report claims.
According to what is being reported by Sky (via MilanZone), Pioli has tried out a different system to his favoured 4-2-3-1 formation during the last few training sessions, and it is a system that Milan fans will be familiar with.
The broadcaster report that the former Fiorentina and Lazio boss has been deploying the team in a 4-3–1-2 in sessions as Milanello with Charles De Ketelaere acting as the trequartista behind the front two.
No further details were given as to who else was deployed where, but it would certainly fix the issue of inconsistency on the right flank if two of Olivier Giroud, Ante Rebic, Rafael Leao and Divock Origi were put up front.
In addition, the midfield three could then be made up of Sandro Tonali as the regista – a position he held at Brescia – with Ismael Bennacer and either Yacine Adli or Tommaso Pobega (or a new signing) as the box-to-box players.
