GdS: Pioli rejoices as Brahim Diaz shines and sends a strong message

By Oliver Fisher -

Brahim Diaz’s performance against Udinese sent a message not only to doubters, but also to Stefano Pioli and two new summer recruits, a report claims.

La Gazzetta dello Sport report how Brahim hadn’t scored since 25 September 2021 against Spezia, but during the 4-2 victory against Udinese he showed himself to be a real attacking midfielder.

There had been rumours that the Spaniard could have his loan terminated a year early, but Pioli backed him to come good despite the arrival of Charles De Ketelaere and Yacine Adli coming back from his loan.

Brahim had a hand in the equalising goal as his shot generated the rebound from which Davide Calabria was fouled, his movement created space for Ante Rebic to make it 2-1, he then took advantage of a mix-up at the back post to score a goal and make it 3-2 before serving Rebic an assist for the fourth.

Pioli can be very happy, because if things continue like this he will soon find a triptych of attacking midfielders with excellent technique and at the same time with different characteristics. The large number of games between now and mid-November will mean everyone gets playing time.

Brahim Diaz’s objective is to convince Milan to buy him from Real Madrid next summer because he wants to stay and prove he is worth a €22m investment, even if Los Blancos have a €27m buy-back. For now, however, these are premature discussions because the main focus must be achieving consistency.

    1. christmas tree ko pawpaw tree ni, leao will turn to ball boy or what, it’s better we had depth in that position in case of injury or tiredness, we are playing the league, TIM cup, champions league

  2. Last season at the start of the season Diaz played well for 5 or 6 games and then he go missing until the end of the season so one game does not is going to be different this season but this time i can rest at ease because we have Adli and CDK in the team!

  3. Diaz is one of the engine blocks of AC Milan. He played for Manchester City, before becoming a Real Madrid bound. He will help the Rossoneri a lot.

  4. It is funny that we are putting our faith on an on loan Player who have made it clear he wants to play Madrid which is why he refused permanent deal but agreed on loan, he will also cost 22M anD I Dont need a fortune teller to tell me that milan will not pay that which makes the transfer almost another impossible soap opera, and even if we buy him and he mIraculously do well which I doubt then Madrid takes him back for 27m… why are we happy he is playing and stopping our own full players from playing and integrating In the team….CDK and Adli should be getting more minutes before this guy, he had a whole season and did nothing, this time should be for our own FULL players taking the first 11 and not on loan players

  5. I was a big critic of Diaz last year both about his weakness (getting knocked over/falling down so easily all the time) and also not making the right pass/play in the final third.

    This is just one game; but the difference between this year and last year, you can see he hit the weights and got stronger. So I respect him very much for realizing one of his big problems from last year and working hard to try to fix that.

    Last year after he got COVID (after his hot start), his mentality was never correct all season long. Hopefully this year his confidence and concentration won’t be broken now that he’s worked to strengthen himself physically.
