GdS: Leao’s Milan metamorphosis underway – he has become the star of the show

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have waited patiently to find the best version of Rafael Leao but here in the 2021-22 season we are finally seeing his potential be realised.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) this morning focuses on the qualities of the Portuguese, highlighting his centrality in Stefano Pioli’s project. The head coach has always given Leao time to complete a metamorphosis of sorts and through some guidance and work on his skills, the 22-year-old now looks to be mastering his craft.

Rafa is responding well to some doubts heading into the new season, showing clear growth and having already reached 10 goals for the season in all competitions. The 4-2-3-1 and the mechanisms of Pioli seem to be tailored perfectly to the skills of the former Lille man.

His amazing dribbles and lightning pace have now become something that the whole San Siro crowd expects, and Leao has become the highlight of the show, with just a renewal to follow now to give the guarantee we will see it for years to come.
