CM: Milan’s plan for Hauge outlined after three offers were declined – his adaptation continues

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have a plan for winger Jens Petter Hauge as he continues to struggle for playing time, according to a report.

Calciomercato.com writes how since joining Milan from Bodo-Glimt, Hauge has played 20 games, scoring 4 goals, but he has struggled so far in 2021 having been an unused substitute six times. He played three times as a starter, and now that the squad has once again had its depth eroded due to injuries, he is ready to return to prominence.

His exclusion from the Europa League squad list disappointed him, as did seeing his team-mates come off the bench and not him, but he never said a word or complained because he knows he must work hard and his time will come.

Tonight he will not start against Udinese, but his entrance in the second half cannot be excluded. At the beginning of 2021 he appeared tired, after having experienced a 2020 on the crest of the wave and without a break due to the nature of how the Norwegian season runs through the summer.

Now he is physically better and is ready to make his contribution, the report adds, while Milan have not changed their opinion of him viewing the friend of Erling Haaland as an asset for the present and for the future. For this reason, the Rossoneri management said no to Southampton, Bayer Leverkusen and Stuttgart, who wanted to sign him on loan.

Hauge’s first few months have served him well from a development point of view and are needed to understand Italy and Italian football, to enter the dynamics of a great club.

    Hauge should be 1st option off of the bench in all games…2hy does Krunic get to play and Hauge doesn’t.Even Maldini should get more playing time

      I support that bro. They shouldn’t destroy a promising player for the sake of a stagnant one.

      i like hauge alot. but his position and mentality is not aligned with the team yet.
      he likes to position himself for through ball, but in milan the winger drops, and wingbacks go up. with theo playstyle, it looks weird.
      but i have faith in hauge, fuck i bought 3 jersey with hauge name behind it u better not sell him milan

      Even Paolo should get more playing time 🤣

  2. Rosess says:

    Maybe next season he will regularly play.

  3. John Nagel says:

    When Haaland scored 9 goals for Norway in the sub-21 championship in one match, 5 of the assists came from Hauge. Probably a smart move if a team can put those two together!

  4. Warrior says:

    They should give him some playing time especial in small games or when we at least have a 2 – 0 lead.. him and Maliki because they are our young stars

  5. Kingsley says:

    Let Hauge be everyone. If he is rushed and he performs badly, all of us here, especially the media will bash him & that will dampen his confidence. He has to prove himself in training first.

  6. MikeJ says:

    Important thing to remember here is that he has not had a proper rest. The Norway season plays through the summer, we are looking at a guy that has literally played 20 games more than everyone else this “season” so far, next season he will have more game time I am sure

    This hauge guy is damn good to play for milan
