Spalletti Testing Candreva As A Trequartista With Joao Cancelo On The Wing
Inter must get back on track after the two consecutive defeats and the draw against Lazio. The Nerazzurri need to return to their impressive performances from a few weeks ago, but something needs to be changed.
The shock could come from a tactical point of view. Spalletti so far has considered his 3 attackers as immovable, Icardi in the centre with Perisic on the left and Candreva wide right, however now things could change.
According to reports on Sky Sports, Spalletti is thinking of deploying Candreva just behind Icardi in the position as a playmaker, promoting Joao Cancelo to the right wing position. This is a solution that the former Roma coach is thinking of adopting and has been testing in training.
However, this option will only be possible when Danilo D’Ambrosio returns from injury, as Spalletti does not want to sacrifice either Cancelo or the Italian full-back, therefore it is not likely to occur in the next challenge with Fiorentina, but after the winter break.
