    • Haris cannot gegenpress. Asking him to do so will fail miserably. I’m not confident he can be anything but a deep lying regista with a very low defensive work rate.

  3. Yup. After letting both Yaro and Marquez I started thinking a back 3/5 was not coming then the Rosenberry trade sealed it.
    .
    Also his last job was at RB Salzburg so a 4-2-2-2 (4-4-2) pressing system makes sense.
