Spezia coach Thiago Motta is planning to surprise Inter by using a different player in his attack to whom they would usually be expected to play, according to a report in the Italian print media today.
As has been reported by Tuttosport today, the young coach is intending to use M’Bala Nzola in attack instead of former Inter player Rey Manaj when the Nerazzurri come to town. Rey Manaj will be on the bench instead.
The Angolan centre forward is more of a physical player than his Albanian teammate and perhaps Thiago Motta feels that is the best way to snatch a goal from a corner or a set-piece against Inter.
M’Bala Nzola has only scored twice this season for Spezia despite making 20 appearances. He has registered one assist in that time.
Rey Manaj has picked up four goals this season so he is very likely to be brought on in the second half.
