Two Napoli options for Mazzarri after January transfer window



Walter Mazzarri can select between a 3 or a four-man defence for Napoli after the January switch window the place the Partenopei signed 4 new gamers.

The defending Serie A champions secured the companies of Pasquale Mazzocchi, Hamed Junior Traoré, Cyril Ngonge and Leander Dendoncker throughout the winter switch window so, as reported by Friday’s printed version of La Gazzetta dello Sport on web page 20, the Mazzarri can now choose two totally different formations.

Dendoncker can play in central midfield and even defence, whereas Mazzocchi could be deployed in a 3 or four-man defence in both of the 2 wings. Ngonge can be fairly versatile as a secondary striker, an attacking winger or an attacking midfielder, whereas Traoré can play as an attacking midfielder, left winger or central midfielder.

Mazzarri has lately switched to a three-man defence, however based on Gazzetta and Corriere dello Sport, he’s been engaged on a four-man defence set-up over the previous couple of days at Castel Volturno.

The Tuscany-born coach had began his second tenure in Naples by confirming Luciano Spalletti’s 4-3-3 which he switched to a 3-5-2 system in Supercoppa video games in January.

A system that gives a three-man defence stays Mazzarri’s favorite, however this doesn’t imply he received’t change the line-up within the second a part of the marketing campaign when Napoli should climb up the desk hoping to succeed in a top-four placement.
