Alessio Romagnoli is set to return to the starting XI on Thursday but thinks ‘formation is just numbers’.
Romagnoli has played just 45 minutes so far this season, as he spent the summer recovering from a meniscus injury.
But now Alessio is finally back and he’s expected to start alongside Leonardo Bonucci and one of Mateo Musacchio and Cristian Zapata in a 3-5-2 formation against Austria Wien on Thursday evening.
“We are well-prepared for Thursday’s challenge, we absolutely have to do well [the match kicks off at 19:00 CET / Italian time],” Romagnoli told Milannews.it during an NBA 2K18 presentation in via Dante in Milano today (Tuesday). “The mental approach? It’s not only that, there are so many factors that make a different. The formation, however, is just numbers, it doesn’t change much.
“My physical condition? I’m physically fit, I’ve worked hard to get in shape again. Now I’m only missing the rhythm of the game. As for everything else, I’m completely cured.”
