Mourinho ponders deploying Dybala as a false nine

While his players are off enjoying their holidays before the team’s departure for their Portugal tour, Jose Mourinho is already preparing the upcoming second half of the season where Roma will have to do better with the return of Paulo Dybala and Gini Wijnaldum.

According to today’s edition of Corriere dello Sport, the Special One is considering revolutionizing Roma’s attack as the team’s offensive players, except Dybala, have struggled mightily in front of goal.

The newspaper claims that Mourinho is willing to experiment with Dybala as a false nine come January.

This same tactic was used (and worked) against Inter at the San Siro where the Giallorossi were able to defeat the hosts 2-1 with a goal by Dybala himself.
