CM: Grinta, versatility and a past in Verona – Pioli considers Krunic a vital resource

By Oliver Fisher -

Rade Krunic has always managed to stay somewhat under the radar since his arrival at AC Milan back in the summer of 2019, but he has been a precious resource for Stefano Pioli.

Milan travel to face Hellas Verona at the Stadio MarcAntonio Bentegodi knowing that a win would leave them requiring just 4 points from their last two games of the season. report how last season’s victory in the same game had Krunic’s stamp.

He scored the goal to make it 1-0 with a splendid free-kick before Diogo Dalot’s second half goal to widen the margin. This season, the Bosnia international has been Pioli’s joker or ‘all-rounder’, occupying four different roles including playmaker, winger, central midfielder and even full-back.

Either from the first minute or more likely while the game is in progress, Krunic will once again hope to contribute to the cause against Verona in a big way. He was among the best on the field even as a substitute against Fiorentina as well as Rebic for the grinta he showed, and with such efforts Pioli will continue to rely on him.

  1. A very underrated player and sadly many Milan fans always mocked him or never appreciates/acknowledge his contribution despite the guy never complaining, never make a drama, and always give his 120% every time he plays.

  2. Hard working player and don’t mind to be just rotation. Remind me of Jon dahl Tomasson that always give his best even he is just backup /reserved. But too bad many AC Milan fans mocking krunic without reason
