Guarin SALME

Maurizio Compagnoni of “Sky Sports” spoke about Inter’s progression into the next round of the Europa League, giving special attention to the play of Freddy Guarin.

He said: “Guarin has always had everything necessary to break through, I knew him from his time at Porto. Recently he was a bit lost but Mancini has revived him. Now he has been very good in a midfield three, as with the 4-2-3-1 he was still a bit lost. The midfielder now seems to be defined as Medel-Brozovic-Guarin with Shaqiri; however, they could also resort to the christmas three formation with Shaqiri and Kovacic close to the top of the 4-3-2-1.”

    I still prefer 4-3-1-2. Coz more give competition in every position. If Kova and Shaq play together and then one of them cant play coz accumulation card or injury, who will replace them? Just focus on finding another great CB, FB, Medel subs and Icardi subs in summer. Remember in this summer Inter will release Berni, Jonathan, Campagnaro, Silvestre, Perreira, Alvarez, Scheletto, Bonnazoli, Taider, Podolski and maybe Handanovic if Inter failed to EL. I suggest try buy Darmian with Bennasi clause, Murilio coz already agree, Perin coz Bardi still inexperience, Toulalan coz free and only subs Medel, Jovetic coz he already lost position in City, And I will prefer release Rano and sign between Dragovic or Schar. And I really hope Mancini magic so we can sign Yaya Toure. And I still want to loaned out Botta, Laxalt, Bardi, Crisetig and Longo.

    I was between the ones that didn’t want Guarin because of his immature play.
    There is no doubt that he has got potential. It was so simple. Guarin MUST not keep the ball too much. If he passes fast he can be great. Looks like Mancio told him that and works fine. So,,, thumbs up to Mancio for that. I also like the rotation between Serie A and EL. Brozovic is the key, while Hernanes is great resting him in EL games. Also Palacio can play instead of Podolski abroad. The only problem now, seems to be Ranocchia and full back replacement when Santon or D’Ambrosio is injured…
    Wolfsburg, damn… Our only hope is Inter’s players to be motivated against this great team that Wolfsburg has.

  • Don’t think the Xmas tree will work that well in practice. It’s important to have Kovacic back in the starting lineup (VERY important), but having him and Shaq so close together would limit both their capacities, as they are both creators, visionaries. Palacio is key for this current system, being the type of player that works a lot in the defensive phase, takes part in creating and ultimately is in the right place to score.

    Mateo needs to go back in midfield (or effectively re-trained for a new position), or better yet, Mancio should change the system when the squad is balanced enough (which has to be before next season).

      the thing is, kova was promised (at least according to some inter hierarchy) that inter will be built around kova, so there was no need for him to learnt something new, just play his style and the rest will have to adjust.
      now after the revolution both the coach and sporting director have another vision, inter will be built of young quality players, not around kova anymore, so he needs to learn something to adjust himself in this mancio’s inter

      But is fundamentally an ineffective and unbalanced formation.

        ancelotti had a huge success with a Christmas tree with kaka and rui behind pippo , it can be effective if the players are there . but i think a 4-2-3-1 is mancini’s favorite formation . he used it everywhere he went . so i think shaqiri would be a winger . which was his intended position when he was bought , and kova as trequartista and a new left winger .

        I wanna see how unbalanced Kovacic and Shaqiri can be behind Icardi. And Guaro, Medel and Hernanes behind them.
