Pic: Cagliari tried out the rarely used 2-0-8 formation at the weekend and beat Inter 4-1
If you like attacking football, you'll love this...
Cagliari manager Zdenek Zemen has always been a man that's been creative when it's come to the tactics his side plays.
The Czech coach is a strong believer in attacking football and he was one of the early advocates of the 4-3-3 formation starting with his successful spell at Foggia back in the early '90s.
Zemen has been in charge of over a dozen clubs since then which is a lot of movement in any walk of life, even football management. But if you ask fans of any of those teams about his time at their club, they'll tell you, at the very least, it was entertaining.
The 63-year-old took over Cagliari at the start of this season at their Serie A campaign got a bit of a kick-start over the weekend thanks to a 4-1 win over Inter Milan at the San Siro.
Zemen's side went for the jugular from the outset and here's the proof, this is how the team lined up for kick-off. 2-0-8, it's like a rugby restart...
