If we had to give some brushstrokes about the football that has been seen in the Valencia So far we should talk about two basic issues. The ball exit from behind is non-negotiable and Valencia he likes to plant himself in the opposite area with quick transitions and more verticality in the opposite field. For this proposal, lanes and wingers with good travel, fast and with depth are needed. We could call them pure wingers, an increasingly endangered species in today’s football.

So much Samu Castillejo What Samuel Lino They respond in a certain way to this profile, and against Castellón it was possible to verify that the Brazilian has a spark in his boots to do damage. Also in other games, the goals have come with this type of connection from which Guedes has taken advantage. Now, if the Portuguese comes out and waits for what happens with Maxi, Valencia would be very lame at the top and would need a ball catcher, although it is also expected that the wide players can contribute a good number of goals.

Finding a fit for Bryan Gil in this way of playing would be more complicated in the hypothetical case that he ends up arriving. We are talking about a footballer who performs well on the wing but has to circulate more inside, the Andalusian should adapt to a system that Gattuso has very clear in his head but which he still has to shape.
