GdS: Pioli not thinking about starting Tonali against Bodo/Glimt – his fitness must improve

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli will resist the temptation to give Sandro Tonali his first start for the club on Thursday night, a report claims.

The Rossoneri face Bodo/Glimt at San Siro in what could be a tricky Europa League third qualifying round game, as the Norwegian side are flying high and play an attractive style of football.

According to a report from La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), head coach Stefano Pioli is not currently thinking of handing Tonali his first start.

After nine minutes against Shamrock Rovers and 14 against Bologna in the league, he will probably play 20 minutes against Bodo/Glimt.

In order for him to become a starter, it will be necessary to wait a little longer as the Italy international has only been working at Milanello for a few weeks and must first think about improving his physical condition.

As a result, it seems the Kessie-Bennacer duo are in line to get the nod again.
