Mourinho prepares imminent switch to four-man defense

Andy Mattioli

Roma concluded their year with a 3-1 win in a friendly with Viterbese behind closed doors.

Despite having relied on a three-man backline, Mourinho is reportedly set to apply a four-man defense in Roma’s upcoming league engagements as shown in the team’s friendlies in Portugal and Japan.

According to Il Tempo, the Special One will commit to four defenders once everyone is back at his disposal. Moreover, the Roma boss is expected to frequently rotate his midfield as he continues to wait for Gini Wijnaldum to fully recovery.
