Rade Krunic is likely to get the nod from Stefano Pioli ahead of Tommaso Pobega for the Udinese match on Saturday evening, a report claims.
As has been reported by Calciomercato.com, the AC Milan coach has got a difficult choice ahead of the Serie A curtain raiser against Udinese on Saturday evening.
Stefano Pioli will be without Sandro Tonali due to an injury so he needs to decide who will start alongside Ismael Bennacer at San Siro.
Many fans may want to see Pobega start as this is his first season as part of the Milan first team but it seems likely that Pioli is going to play it safe and use Krunic instead.
Tonali developed a problem with his hip flexor during the friendly against Vicenza and he faces some time on the sidelines. Much of the rest of the Milan side will pick itself for the first game of the title defence.
