GdS: Leao hoping to improve his away record starting against Salernitana

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan resume their season tomorrow with a game against Salernitana and they are hoping for the best version of Rafael Leao.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) reports that Milan’s mission for the Scudetto will start again tomorrow at 12:30 CET in Salerno and Leao will once again lead the Rossoneri in the first official match of 2023.

The Portuguese winger has now become the great driving force for Milan and will be crucial in attempting to overturn the gap to Napoli, but he will have to improve his scoring performance in Serie A away from home having scored only once away from home in 2022.

For a player of Leao’s quality one goal in that span is too few and it shows that he still has a level to go in terms of being an all-round player. Given the absence of Ibrahimovic, Origi and Rebic for tomorrow’s game, there is even more importance on the shoulders of the former Lille man.

Meanwhile, off the field, the soap opera about his renewal continues, even if in recent days the confidence in reaching an agreement seems to have increased. The contacts between the parties are positive and the Portuguese is seriously considering accepting the €6.5m net per season offer.
