The squad depth available to AC Milan head coach Marco Giampaolo could lead to some ‘unpredictable’ selections, a report claims.
Theo Hernandez, Rade Krunic, Rafael Leao, Ismael Bennacer, Leo Duarte and Ante Rebic all arrived in the summer transfer window for a combined €95m.
The result of that, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, is that Giampaolo now essentially has two players in every outfield position.
There are three goalkeepers at his disposal, more than enough for a season with just Serie A and Coppa Italia football to play, while there are then 10 pairs of outfield players all vying for their respective spots.
In addition to that there is Fabio Borini, considered a ‘useful joker card’ by Giampaolo and the promising Matteo Gabbia.
In other words, as the head coach has already explained: those who adjust to the new tactics quicker will play, with ‘sharp and perhaps unpredictable’ selections expected.
