Hakan Calhanoglu was one of the key players for Milan in the first half of the season, with ten assists and six goals in all competitions. In 2021, the story has been very different, with just two assists to his name.
The No.10 was forced to sit on the sidelines for three games due to COVID, and he hasn’t really been able to reach his top form since then. As highlighted by Gazzetta Dello Sport (via PianetaMilan), Milan need him back as soon as possible.
The Rossoneri currently have the Turk’s ‘stunt-double’ in the squad, as the newspaper describes it. They need Calhanoglu back at his best in order to recover from what has been a tough last few weeks, with no wins in their last four games.
Stefano Pioli will field the attacking midfielder from start tomorrow as Milan will take on Roma. It will be a crucial game for the San Siro side, hoping to bounce back with what would be a massive win.
