Inter Milan manager Walter Mazzarri has revealed that he will choose the most suitable formation for his team next year depending on what new players he will have at his disposal.

The 52-year-old added that that defensive midfield is one area that his team will look to strengthen, with an earnest desire to manoeuvre his team's tactics around that position. 

The Nerazzurri will be part of next year's Europa League by virtue of finishing fifth in the league and as a result, Mazzarri insists that strengthening the squad will be important.

The Italian also reveals that their plans are to qualify for the Champions League next year, for which having a quality team will be important.


"What do Inter need for next year? You'll see that on the first day of pre-season training," the former Napoli manager said during a press conference.

"There will be players who are still with us. In the first week I'll work on a four-man defence.

"I like to be able to balance the team a certain way and I'd like to be able to play with four at the back and a holding midfielder – an important position that could be useful if I played a 3-5-2 too.

"It's the most important signing for us to think about, with a view to playing four across the back as well.

"I'll choose the most suitable formation depending on what new players we have."
