Krunic happy to ‘adapt to what the coach wants’ and proclaims: “We dream of the Scudetto”

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan midfielder Rade Krunic has pledged his availability to play wherever head coach Stefano Pioli wants him to, and reaffirmed the team’s Scudetto dream.

The Bosnian got a start on the left wing last night during the 3-0 win over Genoa at the Marassi, meaning he has now played as a winger, attacking midfielder and as part of the double pivot under Stefano Pioli as his reputation as a utility man continues.

Krunic spoke during an interview with SportMediaset after Milan’s victory over Genoa, and he was asked about what his favoured position is given the amount of different roles he has played in since joining back in the summer of 2019.

“I feel like someone who can adapt to what the coach wants. It is not easy to play many games on the left and then move to the midfield. In a game it is not easy and it would take 2-3 games… But I feel good and I am always available to do what is needed for the team,” he said (via MilanNews).

Krunic was also asked if he believes in Milan’s ability to go on and win the title this season. The Diavolo sit second in the table just one point behind Napoli in top spot with a crucial stretch of games due between now and the Christmas break.

“Of course yes. We have to continue with what we have done so far; we cannot think after two defeats that it is all over and that we can’t win it anymore. Yesterday we won, on Saturday we have another opportunity to win against a tough team, in our stadium and in front of our fans: we have to win. We dream of the Scudetto and we hope to do as we did against Genoa.”
