Spalletti to use ‘complete’ 4-2-3-1 at Inter

Luciano Spalletti

New Inter Milan head coach Luciano Spalletti has confirmed his team will play a 4-2-3-1 system, as it is a well-rounded formation.

The 58-year-old signed a two-year contract with Inter and takes over from Stefano Piolo, who was sacked on 9 May. Spalletti comes with a solid reputation after guiding previous club Roma to a runners-up position in Serie A behind Juventus.

As such, he is keen to introduce a definitive identity at the San Siro and he believes his preferred system will reap rewards.

"I'll bring a bit of experience here, but for as long as the pitch measurements don't change, 4-2-3-1 is a complete formation to bring good performances out of the team, allowing those attacking qualities that decide results to come out," He told football-italia.

"In order to win, we have to score lots of goals. Balance is needed, but beyond the numbers, we'll rely on the concept of attacking the defensive line of our opponents.

"We need to create quality. After that, (the players) will recognise what are the characteristics they need to succeed, to quickly embark on an important journey."
