GdS: Pioli leading Milan’s Scudetto bid with a mix of experience and new stars

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are having an incredible season and have taken the Scudetto battle into the final two games thanks to a mixture of youth and experience.

As La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) writes this morning, Theo Hernandez has been a fundamental part of Milan’s push for the league title as he has the highest minutes played in the whole team with 2533, scoring four goals.

Olivier Giroud may be 35, but he has made vital contributions this season as the Frenchman decided the matches against Napoli and Inter with his goals.

Then there is Sandro Tonali who has been the revelation of this season and a completely different player compared to the one seen last season when he had some growing pains after his initial loan move from Brescia.

Mike Maignan meanwhile has been perhaps the most decisive man of this season, having joined from Lille last summer with the difficult task of replacing Gianluigi Donnarumma which he has done exceptionally.

Fikayo Tomori and Rafael Leao have also played a big part as the extra men of this Milan squad, decisive when it was needed, and finally the impact of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s leadership (and his 8 league goals) must be mentioned.
