It would be wrong to label Rafael Leao’s quiet performance against Salernitana as a big worry, but it is also a talking point that must be addressed.
MilanNews writes how he is undoubtedly the key man of this team in 2022 so far with five goals and three assists since the turn of the year, but he failed to follow up a good run of form in the game against Serie A’s bottom-placed side.
Yesterday Leao had a great opportunity to ride the wave that he has created and in a career at Milan that has been typified by ups and downs so far, the Portuguese winger will now be called upon to prove that he is not slipping into another dip.
A player like him must live on stimuli, otherwise the risk of collapsing is always around the corner. Concentration for all 90 minutes is the one step – which could be the last and which goes hand in hand with the ability to read the game – to become a true champion, which Leao must realise.
