Yunus Musah made his first start for AC Milan in the 1-0 win against Hellas Verona yesterday afternoon. The American was one of the better players and sent an important message to Stefano Pioli.
The Rossoneri clinched three very important points underneath the floodlights at San Siro, despite making some heavy rotation. Musah got his first chance from start and did well overall, not afraid to get stuck in.
As highlighted by Calciomercato.com, Musah sent an important message to Pioli with his performance against Verona. Playing as the right wing-back, the American ran constantly and also wasn’t afraid to take on his man when in possession.
Sometimes he lacked the technique needed, but he made up for it with very hard work. It’s clear that his ability to play where the manager needs him could be crucial this season, especially given the hectic schedule.
As the report concludes, he’s still a rough talent and needs more time to fully adapt, but for just €18m plus bonuses Milan have themselves a wildcard in the midfield.
