GdS: Pioli has full confidence in Romagnoli – he will start against Red Star and Roma

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli has full faith in captain Alessio Romagnoli despite the criticism he continues to receive, a report claims.

Romagnoli joined the Rossoneri in the summer of 2015, having signed from Roma for €25million. Even though he has been a pillar of the Milan rearguard for six seasons now, and the club captain for three, but he is not in good form.

Yesterday in his pre-match press conference Pioli defended the centre-back amid the recent criticism that he has received from sections of the media and Milan’s fan base.

According to this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), Pioli will start the defender both tonight against Red Star and also on Sunday in the capital against Roma, highlighting the confidence that the coach has in the defender.

Alongside Romagnoli tonight will not be Kjaer but Fikayo Tomori, so therefore the “change” for the captain called for loudly on social media in recent days.

    I just don’t see us transforming into.the old Milan with Romagnoli as our starting CB and Captain…. he’s too slow…not physical enough and makes too many errors for a 27 yr old with his experience…he should be in his prime now…but Tomori and Gabbia have looked better than him…we need to move him on….make Donnarrumma the Captain and down Tomori permanently.
    I mean he can’t even replace Old Bonucci and Chiellini the way Gigio has with Buffon….if we want to be a threat…we must move him on and replace him with a younger CB…Like Lovato at Hellas or Schuurs of Ajax.

    That is thinking short term, Romagnoli at his peak is better then all that CBs and must just get form again
