CM: Hauge’s first season a rollercoaster of emotions – the club’s stance on his future has changed

By Oliver Fisher -

The plan for Jens Petter Hauge’s future has emerged amid a lack of playing time over the past few months, according to a report.

Calciomercato.com writes how Hauge’s first season with the Rossoneri has been a succession of emotions, starting with a goal for Bodo/Glimt at San Siro in the Europa League qualifiers, joining Milan less than a week later, scoring against Celtic in the Europa League then away against Napoli, with more important goals following.

However, he has struggled for appearances in the last few months. A drop in condition, exclusion from the Europa League squad list and the many games spent on the bench without setting foot on the pitch even for the final few minutes have left some fans baffled.

Stefano Pioli in the most delicate moment of the season, preferred to rely on the most experienced players or those who have been at Milan for several years, a choice that Hauge respected without batting an eyelid. Last month he scored a decisive equaliser against Sampdoria, but has not played a minute since.

From Monday – after the game against Atalanta – Milan will analyse all their players on a case by case basis. Among these is that of Hauge who will probably need to find space to grow, and while the club has reiterated their total confidence in the Norwegian, a loan seems to be the right solution in order not to waste the investment. There is a line of clubs ready to take up this opportunity.

    imagine him coming on with 5 minutes to go because Pioli’s boyfriends got injured or something and scoring the winner against Atalanta

    Maldini should make sure he stay next season. This guy deserves to play every week i really dont know what is wrong with this coach.and do try to get us a coach after the last game

    This is exactly what people who know nothing about players do. Hauge is the only football player who knows how to play football when it comes to Milan players, with him only Ibrahimovic, Cohanoglu, Benaser, Leao can be added. But obviously the management of the club does not know what is good in Milan and who needs to be got rid of. Pioli hahaha … that he is very incompetent and every word is superfluous for his nonsense and how much he knows football players. This is a man who wandered into Milan and I hope that everyone will go out in the summer and ask him to leave.

    Milan has one of the most simplest systems in football while Atalanta have very complex and variation in their system and only a footballer with good game reading ability can counter, hauge has game reading ability but pioli wouldn’t play him for krunic or castillejo. Sad😢

    Who else noticed that this guy can play through the middle and he gives killer passes that the Turkish guy would be proud of. Honestly, I just hope there’s something Pioli sees that we don’t cuz playing Hauge is a no-brainer. The guy was so good at bodo cuz the coach had faith in him and he came here just to sit on the bench. Sometimes when I think that he wasn’t called to the europa cuz of Mandzukic I’m tempted to question the sanity of Pioli. Seriously, if we lose this guy for de Paul I’m totally gonna lose it. This guy is the present and future of Milan. Just as young as Haaland and can only get better with a bit more trust from the coach.

    I watched Hauge first goal against celtic…. He became agile like a butterfly and scored.
    Against Napoli ( away) he step overs and tricks a sharp reactive Manolas.
    Against Sampdoria he has scored such a brace as if it looks like something magic and creative is in the player which needs to be polished ( remember hauge came in 74th and 78th minute against napoli and Sampdoria) .

    If he has done in premier League his value would have raised to 55m $ at most by this.
    But we have seen Samu and Krunic. Samu who looses ball when defender tries to press him he falls down like a 13 yr old full back. Krunic has 0 ball control and 0 game anticipation ( he failed to realise that xyz player would give pass to raspadori who has intelligently found space, no rather he would give hug to kessie who is marking the no. 10 incase he passes to him. Hence leaves empty pocket for them. And GOAL ).
    But PIOLI —- ” OHHHH SAMU AND KRUNIC MY BABIES COME AND PLAY ”
    on Hauge — ” He is not part of my plans maybe he needs more time so I give him 8-9 minutes (when I think meite or krunic does not want to play) .
    And tonali ohhhhhh why would I pick him when I need samu and krunic.

    Now everyone knows that the problem is the coach, Pioli. Not the players, milan wants to keep pioli coz the management has no budget to spend, even in the summer window. Unless , they make big sales then they gonna do it.

  9. Heri says:

    Not for sale…..

    Please don’t sign Young players when you don’t want to give them chance to play ..Hauge is one of the best ..He didn’t fail … it’s the coach and His philosophy (I don’t if he had one ) that failed this talented players like him…He give chances to Miete, krunich, Hakan (inconsistent),samu , Leao then why not for Hauge…sad he scored a goal in last minutes against samp but this coach never gave him chance…we are mistreating him….I believe He is one guy most loved by fans thou he didn’t play much … Please Don’t waste him…
