Gattuso returns Napoli to 4-3-3

Gennaro Gattuso will implement a 4-3-3 formation as new Napoli coach, according to reports.

He has arrived at the Castel Volturno training ground and will hold his presentation press conference today at 17.00 GMT.

Gattuso will replace Carlo Ancelotti as the Partenopei’s new coach, and is set to make tactical changes straight away.

Ancelotti favoured a 4-4-2, the first time he’s gone back to that system since his days in charge of Parma in the late 1990s.

The open warfare between club and squad drags on after the team refused to go back into a training retreat, interrupting the week-long stay several days early.

Ever since then, Napoli have been in lockdown mode, banning their players from speaking to the media.
