Up until the winter friendlies, Ciprian Tatarusanu was the undisputed backup goalkeeper for AC Milan. The situation has now changed, even though Antonio Mirante didn’t exactly impress against PSV Eindhoven.
As a result of Mike Maignan’s injury, Tatarusanu has played quite a lot for Milan this season and he hasn’t always been brilliant between the sticks. The Rossoneri fans, therefore, have demanded a shift in the hierarchies or a January signing.
Andrea Longoni, as he points out in his latest editorial for MilanNews, was one of the people that asked for a shift in the hierarchies between Tatarusanu and Mirante. A shift that indeed materialised but unfortunately didn’t pay off.
The PSV friendly only highlighted the fact that Milan don’t really have a strong backup goalkeeper and given Maignan’s injury struggles, this is a bit worrying. Milan have secured the arrival of Vasquez, but it remains to be seen if he will be chosen over the other two.
