After positive performances in preseason and against Shamrock Rovers, AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is ready to put his trust in Davide Calabria.
Milan went into the summer with the right-back spot being seemingly the position that needed addressing most urgently, but on the day of the Serie A opener against Bologna it no longer seems to be a worry.
According to Calciomercato.com, Pioli is ready to put his faith in Primavera product Davide Calabria as Pierre Kalulu continues to settle and Andrea Conti remains out injured.
Calabria has always worked hard, has always been available and now his sale on the transfer market seems to be a distant possibility. Of course no player can really be considered non-transferable and, in the face of crazy offers, nothing is 100% guaranteed for a player on whom Milan could make a clean capital gain.
However his flexibility (he can play both left and right-back as a deputy to Theo Hernandez) and his defensive work rate mean that Pioli, for now, is happy.
