GdS: The two reasons Rebic is still very useful to Milan’s cause

By Oliver Fisher -

There have been rumours suggesting AC Milan could decide to sell Ante Rebic but he is still useful to the cause for two reasons, a report claims.

La Gazzetta dello Sport report that the 28-year-old Croatian still has many admirers in Europe despite the fact he didn’t have the best of seasons. His agent would not have a problem in finding accommodation for his client, but he remains a precious wild card to Milan.

The problems last season were of a physical nature as Rebic missed 12 games in Serie A plus 4 in the Champions League, with muscle trouble and a chronic tendonitis in his knee limited his availability.

However, versatility is one of the key reasons he remains useful to Milan given that he can play as a left winger to give Rafael Leao some time off and against certain types of opponents Rebic also knows how to be useful as a centre-forward with his movement.

Rebic only closed the season with 2 goals and 2 assists to his credit in the league, but he was good at finding a way to assert himself on the game off the bench, bringing freshness and dynamism when he was called into question. His work rate and pressing causes problems for opponents, as seen when he won the ball before Sandro Tonali’s last minute winner against Lazio.

  1. Smjesno da su 3 Hrvati u slici!
    (Funny there are 3 Croatians in that picture!)

    Rebic brings a lot to the table; and while he only had 2 G and 2 A this past season, late in the year he had 3 fantastic passes that led to superior chances that his teammates terribly failed to put away (which would’ve gotten him up to 5 assists)… not to mention the Spezia terrible referee decision not to play advantage that took away that Messias goal — would’ve been a Rebic assist on a game winning goal.

    This article talks of his versatility to play LW and center forward; but it should also mention that he can play RW too as he did for Croatian national team (he and Perisic would switch sides in the middle of the match to confuse opponents in Croatia’s same 4-2-3-1 system as Milan… because both Perisic and Rebic are great with both feet crossing or shooting).

  2. Rebic is awesome but when he barely plays due to injuries I can’t help but think we should try to get value out of him while we still can… hard choice thought because he’s one of the few modern players who plays like a man.
