Think I agree with this, if we decide to play without an out an out defensive midfielder but for example play Ndombele, GLC and Gedson in a dynamic midfield 3 then I can get behind it but I don’t think shoehorning Ndombele into being a 6 is a good idea, one of his key strengths is his progressive and powerful dribbling which obviously leaves space behind, and this would have to stop if he was forced to play deep. His creativity would also be wasted imo.I really hope Ndombele isn’t played as the most defensive of the three. It would be such a waste.
I just can’t imagine a Jose team without a defensively-minded midfielder filling in the gaps and intercepting the ball. The way football is going tactically at the moment, this player need to b quick across the ground to be effective.
