GdS: Chukwueze, Musah and Camarda get a run-out but Milan fall to Trento

By Oliver Fisher -

Samuel Chukwueze got his first unofficial start yesterday evening as AC Milan hosted Serie C side Trento, as did Yunus Musah, but it was not a positive outing result-wise.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (seen below) recall how Chukwueze played about an hour but didn’t score while his team-mates didn’t either, which admittedly were largely the reserves from the Silvio Berlusconi Trophy the night before in Monza.

The 15-year-old Francesco Camarda even came off the bench, which says a lot about the experimental nature of the game from Stefano Pioli’s point of view.

Leon Sipos netted the winner for Trento as they emerged 1-0 victors, with the striker having come through the academy of Dinamo Zagreb.

Now the team are preparing for the next friendlies on Saturday and Sunday against the Tunisians of the Etoile du Sahel and Novara respectively, aperitifs for the league debut against Bologna on the 21st.

AC Milan XI (4-3-3): Sportiello; Florenzi, Kjaer, Simic (78′ Nsiala), Bartesaghi (88′ Jimenez); Musah (56′ Zeroli), Adli, (78′ Eletu) Pobega; Chukwueze (56′ Traore), Colombo (78′ Camarda), Romero.

  1. Biggest issue I see is the change of system from 4231 to 433.

    Not only will Pioli need to settle in all the new signings but our regulars need to adapt to a new system as well. He really made it hard for himself this preseason.

    If he’d stick to 4231,they wouldn’t even need all these signings. Now after 8 new players, we still lack a proper DM and a starting material ST. Not to mention deputy CB, LB and probably RB.

  2. Tmo, all 8 signings can also feature in 4231, 433, 433 (F9) and limited 442.

    Milan did wonders despite lack of depth. 8 signings were all needed. Transfer market is still open and we can hope. The problem is the outgoings. We need to freeup before making further moves.
