Leo Messi already has begun to train with the FC Barcelona of Ronald Koeman, and the Dutch technician has been able to check at first hand that the Argentinian star is fully motivated to keep on being the offensive referent of the team this season 2020-21. Koeman Breathes calm, because it will be able to range to 'The Flea' in a very special place of the 4-2-3-1 that medita implant like system type.

According to sources of the changing room collected by 'MD', the Dutch wishes to play with a 4-2-3-1 with offensive major prominence and the protect, in the centre of the field, of a double pivote that serve to recover balloons and organise the game. A double pivote presumably composed by Frenkie of Jong and Miralem Pjanic, those who would connect with Wijnaldum (if it lands finally) a bit more advanced, as it stick with the forward.


The Dutch midfield player, a 'all-terrain' with a lot of arrival to the contrary area, would exert of first line of pressure after loss beside the rest of forwards, and with the balloon in the feet would commission to connect with the left extreme, the tip and the false right extreme. This last position would be allocated to Leo Messi, the one who would start initially from the right to go to the centre and move with full freedom.

Koeman Wishes that one of his offensive players was hit to the band to open thefield , a task that seems allocated in the left wing for players like Ousmane Dembélé, Ansu Fati and Francisco Trincao. The mission of this extreme would be the one to open the field, find depth and force to the rival right side to go out of the zone of the centre, what would cause that there were spaces between him and the central.

Dembélé-Griezmann-Messi in attack?

Messi, as we have said, would split from the right and would centre only in attacking, without going down to look for the balloon to the medullary as it has done in these last campaigns, but it would expect to that they sent it to him his mates. Neither it wants to Koeman that Messi wear out a lot in defence, although it will not remain totally freed of these functions the Argentinian.

With Messi of extreme liar in the right and a pure left-handed extreme, the tip of attack would be for Antoine Griezmann or for the new signing that the FC Barcelona plans for the forward: Memphis Depay or Lautaro Martínez. One of the two attackers could arrive in the next days, and would have fit in the eleven of Koeman. If it is like headline or no, this already will depend of the trainer.
