AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli is hoping for a change of course from Ante Rebic between now and the end of the season otherwise his future could be thrust into doubt, a report claims.
This morning’s edition of Tuttosport (via PianetaMilan) recalls that Rebic has been unlucky this season, because his big goals at Anfield against Liverpool and away at Juventus were followed up by repeated injury problems that ended any momentum.
His last start came back on 16 October 2021 and his last goal was the equaliser in the 2-2 draw against bottom-placed side Salernitana.
In the second half of the two previous seasons the Croatian was devastating as he scored 11 goals in 2019-20 and 10 goals in 2020-21. With eight matches in the league and a Coppa Italia semi-final against Inter to come, Rebic is expected to play a leading role.
It could also have an impact on his future too because although Rebic’s contract will expire in June 2025, there are never many players who are truly immune from being sold. Nonetheless, the former Eintracht Frankfurt man has not been called up by the Croatian national team since the Euros, so he has intensified his training at Milanello in the meantime, ready for Bologna next Monday.
