Lazio’s System Would Radically Change Under Possible New Coach Gattuso

Lazio’s tactical system would radically change should Gennaro Gattuso take over from Simone Inzaghi this summer.

As reported by Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the Biancocelesti would switch from their tried-and-tested 3-5-2 formation to a 4-3-3 system that could also transition into a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Under this system, Manuel Lazzari would switch to playing as a right-back, with a new signing needed to provide competition to Mohamed Fares on the left flank.

In midfield, if all the top players stayed like Luis Alberto and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, then a few back-ups may be needed.

A new signing would also be needed up front. Ciro Immobile would remain the star man in the centre of the attacking trident, and Joaquin Correa would be comfortable playing as an outside forward.

That leaves the final outside forward role, which could be filled by Felipe Caicedo or Vedat Muriqi, or even a new signing.
