From 4-3-3 to 4-4-2 or 4-3-1-2 of Carlo Ancelotti by sending Rodrygo to play as a striker Pair: Vinicius Jr. or Jose Luis San Martin Mato Joselu.
Such tactical adjustments resulted in Rodrygo being closely followed by the opponent’s defense. And thus having limited playing space. The 22-year-old forward admits he doesn’t like that role very much. This is because he is more comfortable playing in wide positions in a 4-3-3 system.
‘I’ve always made it clear that I have the ability to play on the wing and play inside as well. But I’ve always said that I don’t like being a number 9. And in the end both at the club and here (Brazil) I had to play that position many times. But I didn’t like it very much,’ Rodrygo said.
