3 Reasons Why Chelsea And Mourinho Have Made The Right Business

2. Tactical awareness

Matic vs Groningen

Jose Mourinho is known for his horses-for-courses approach, and sets up his teams to counteract the strengths of the opposition. Matic’s possesses tactical flexibility, having played in a 4-3-3, a 4-2-3-1 and a 4-4-2 formation during his career. He can play as a box-to-box midfielder in a 4-3-3 or 4-4-2 formation while he is the most comfortable playing as holding midfielder in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Matic can shield the back four, intercept passes and launch counterattacks, and has a physical presence in midfield that will help him adapt to the English game; having previously spent time at Chelsea will obviously help him. Mourinho will appreciate his flexibility and he might soon be one of the first names on the team sheet.
