Should be fine, if it is concerned. Comes from another country that is proficient in the passing game. Though, for many years... all that Benfica needed was just a little bit of cynicism...

Plus he will arguably increase Benfica's good relationships to FC Barcelona. I'm honig for Saviola or Riqueleme now

Koeman used to play 4-3-3 with Ajax. What formation does Benfica play?
Do you think Koeman will change the tactics?

for the past 2 seasons , we have been playing essentially 4-5-1...and on occasion, 4-4-2......we did play 4-3-3 sometimes too, but quite seldom

well, looking at the players we seem to be targeting, i would say that it is very likely we will play 4-3-3 more often this year....but its a bit early to tell which will be the prefered formation, since we dont have the squad complete yet, nor has koeman directed a single working session yet
