With just a few days to go before the start of Euro 2024, Luciano Spalletti has revealed the playing system the Squadra Azzurra plan to adopt. The Italian coach envisages a flexible approach in which his team will be able to adapt to any situation it may face.

“First of all, we want something that’s not rigid, that’s free enough. To offer this possibility of freedom of expression to the players’talent while having an organized team. The more unpredictable it is, the more surprising it becomes for our opponents. We want to be able to do everything, because here in Coverciano, they are teaching us that playing systems are no longer as rigid as they once were. We’ll be facing teams who play 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3, and it’s no longer possible to leave a man unmarked in midfield. We’ll be trying to defend with four men and build with three. The best teams now know how to combine unpredictability in their movements with occupying areas of the pitch. We’re all builders and defenders in equal measure,” declared the former Napoli coach at today’s press conference.
