Ricardo Rodriguez may get the nod over Theo Hernandez to start at left-back against Fiorentina, according to a report.
The Swiss international has not impressed in his first four starts of the season and was benched on Thursday night for the defeat against Torino.
Hernandez – who joined from Real Madrid in a €20m deal this summer – was picked over Rodriguez and instantly appeared to represent an upgrade.
Many assumed as a result that he would start on Sunday evening when Milan host Fiorentina at San Siro, however that might not be the case.
According to a report from il Corriere della Sera (via Calciomercato.com), head coach Marco Giampaolo is facing a dilemma as to who to start.
The outlet states that Giampaolo is ‘worried about the speed of Fiorentina winger Federico Chiesa’, and as such is considering player Rodriguez – a more defensive full-back – to neutralise the threat.
