GdS: Calhanoglu back in form ahead of the final sprint – Pioli has never questioned his position

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will need their number ten to show all his quality on Sunday night to achieve a positive result against Juventus.

As La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) writes, his two goals in the last three league games mean that Calhanoglu is starting to return to some kind of form. The Rossoneri attacking midfielder started the season well, but then Covid slowed him down and only in the last few weeks has the player been able to show his qualities.

The paper claims that head coach Stefano Pioli has never questioned the position of the Turkey international but rather the opposite, and he has continued to give him the main role in his attacking patterns. He is untouchable in the 4-2-3-1 behind Ibrahimovic, so Calhanoglu will look to repay the faith against Juventus.

His contract is about to expire and renewal negotiations have been “frozen” in order to let the team focus on the season finale. A good result on Sunday could also guide the club’s choices.
