Evolving Role of Central Midfielders

Filed under: Uncategorized — larryang @ 12:44 PM

I’ve got central midfielders on my brain. Most of the players I admire play that position, albeit differently. Pirlo, Xavi, Xabi Alonso, Makalele.

4-2-3-1, Barcelona’s 4-3-3 and Italian 4-3-1-2 or 4-3-2-1. Double-pivots.  playmakers dropping deeper (see Pirlo and occasionally Beckham).
