Longoni: Rebic must leave tough period behind as Pioli needs his contribution

By Isak Möller -

With two and a half months left of the season, AC Milan are still in the Scudetto race and the upcoming games will be very important in that respect. Ante Rebic, if he can regain form, is one of the players that could be key.

This was highlighted by Andrea Longoni in his latest column for MilanNews, stating that it’s essential for Stefano Pioli to recover the Croatian international. Between injuries and poor performance, it has been a tough season for him.

Rebic has scored just three goals this season and that can be compared with the 11 goals he scored last campaign (also 9 assists). Above all, though, it’s the injuries that have made things difficult for him with 17 games missed.

He must find his way back physically and mentally because we all know just how important he can be for Milan when in form. We saw it last season and we saw it against Juventus earlier this term.
