André Silva came with high hopes to Milan, but never really lived up to them. However, on Friday night, Di Marzio reported that Giampaolo wants to keep the Portuguese striker.
On Friday night’s Calcio Mercato L’Originale, the ever reliable Gianluca Di Marzio came with the news that Milan’s new manager, Marco Giampaolo, wants to keep André Silva.
Giampaolo’s plan is to play André Silva next to Krzsyztof Piatek up top in his trademark 4-3-1-2 formation. A speculation that can be made is whilst Piatek is the spearhead forward, André Silva will handle link-up play from midfield to attack and supply Piatek.
Silva got a flying start on his loan at Sevilla last season, as he scored eight goals in his first 13 games. In his first league game in La Liga, he scored a hat trick against Rayo Vallecano. However, after that he scored only one more goal in his remaining 16 games.
