Genoa, how will Thiago Motta play? The 2-7-2 cannot be ruled out either …
Thiago Motta has not made his debut as a manager of an adult team yet but he has already been talked about for his tactical ideas while he was the Paris Saint Germain youth coach. During the experience with the Psg under 19, he tried to play with 2-7-2. You read that right, 2-7-2 because in his idea of soccer the goalkeeper must also have an active role and must not limit himself to parry.
A bit of an extremity of what some coaches like Guardiola, Luis Enrique or Fonseca of Rome already preach. Recently, while still in France at the helm of the Paris Saint Germain youth teams, Thiago Motta explained his 2-7-2:
"In my idea of football, the attacker is the first defender and the goalkeeper is the first striker. The goalkeeper has to start the game, he has to know how to play with his feet, I insert him in the seven midfielders, the goalkeeper must have the quality and personality to start the action with his feet, even at the cost of playing high. Going back to my sentence on the attackers, offensive pressure must start from the tips to recover the ball to the opponents "(source Ansa).
