During AC Milan’s Serie A opener against Bologna there were a lot of tactical indications on display, but the use of inverted full-backs was certainly among the strongest.
Recently we have seen some changes in how Milan head coach Stefano Pioli uses his full-backs as they come inside when Milan have the ball. This is what is called as an ‘inverted full-back’, which can be explained through observations of certain principles.
We wrote an analysis on the concept just nine days ago expecting to see it in action right from the first game, and we were not disappointed.
