Johnnie Jackson will assess the AFC Wimbledon players at his disposal before deciding whether he will continue to favour the wing-back formation he played at Charlton.
The Dons appointed the Valley fans’ favourite, pictured left, as their new manager last month.
Jackson played 5-3-2 while in charge of the Addicks. Asked if he intended to do the same at Wimbledon, Jackson told the South London Press: “I’ll probably mix it up.
“Once I get in and see everyone on the training pitch and really get to know the players properly then we’ll make more of a judgement call.
“I’ve got certain ideas and different things I want to try out but it is about getting the right people in the right position to be able to do that.
“That is probably something that evolves in the next few weeks.”
Jackson is hoping that the Dons are able to keep hold of Ayoub Assal.
The 20-year-old, contracted until June 2024, has been linked with Fulham and Brentford.
“He is an exciting player who I have got high hopes for,” said the Wimbledon chief.
“He is massively important in what I want to do moving forward.
“I’ve come in here and I don’t want to lose any of my best players. I want to build around these sort of players, add to the group and make it stronger.”
The Dons are set to appoint a head of football operations who will work alongside Jackson and support him on recruitment, scouting, dealing with agents, contract negotiations and talent identification.
Wimbledon will play home friendlies against Ipswich Town (July 16), Reading (July 19) and Oxford United (July 23) as part of their preparations for the new League Two season.
National League South side Eastbourne Borough are the first warm-up fixture on July 9.
