Crazy Ball – The arrival of striker from Nigeria, Victor Osimhen from Lille, reportedly will force Napoli to make changes to their game system, from a 4-3-3 to 4-2-3-1 formation.
The persistence and seriousness of Napoli to bring in a young Nigerian striker, Victor Osimhen did have its own consequences for Gennaro Gattuso's team. The issuance of funds which reportedly reached Rp. 871 billion plus a bonus of Rp. 174 billion, indeed on paper makes Gattuso have to be able to make the attacker part of their main team.
This reportedly will make some important changes in the body of Napoli in the coming season. According to the news from Corriere dello SportThe 4-3-3 formation used by Gattuso may no longer be usable and that's why the coach will try to use the 4-2-3-1 format.
The new game system is said to be able to make Napoli take full advantage of Osimhen's strengths as the main spearhead, but still not forgetting the figure of Dries Mertens. The Belgian striker is considered to be increasingly difficult if he continues to be relied on as the main spearhead, so with the new formation, Mertens is considered to be able to continue to appear effectively as a player who provides support to the main attacker.
However, changing the game system quite drastically can also present its own risks, especially regarding adaptations for other players. Napoli itself proved to have had difficulties at the start of last season, while still being coached by Carlo Ancelotti who tried several new systems such as playing a 4-4-2 formation.
The players seemed very used to the 4-3-3, and made substitutions for an Osimhen, if it didn't go smoothly it could cause more problems. Gattuso himself often gets maximum results with a system that uses four defenders, three midfielders and three attackers.
However, the huge investment made by Napoli's management for an Osimhen is certainly not something that can be simply ignored. Gattuso seems to have to rack his brains more in order to provide satisfaction to all parties and also be able to achieve satisfactory results in the field later.
