we were wondering what ace Max had up his sleeve this season in terms of tactical changes that would give us that push in the final part of the season, as it looked like he hit the wall after the 1st Atletico game. then he comes back with the 352/433 once again, but this time its not with a fullback/wingback and wingback/winger, but with CB/CM and LW/CM hybrids! all while turning a previously useless bum into a key player. dear Max, is there an end to your genious?
Im afraid teams will figure us out if we use him often in that role. Especially pep with his 10 wingers/attacking players. Imagine De Bruyne, Sane, David Silva, and Sterling on the left side. Atletico didnt really push us. They played for a 0-0 or 1-0.
I mean, he was extremely sub par in his main position of cm, its not like we could see that Allegri was gonna turn him into a cm/cb hybrid.
Plus on those wages, I think its fair for people to question his ability, im sill not convinced its a good buy
