Italian journalist says Milan attacker is ‘growing physically’ after Bologna clash

By Euan Burns -

Italian journalist Stefano Borghi has said that Charles De Ketelaere is growing in a physical sense after his exploits against Bologna.

Speaking whilst on DAZN on Sunday night (via Milan News) Borghi discussed the performance of the Belgian youngster who made his first start for the club since making his move from Club Brugge.

It was a very positive display that saw him get his first assist but Borghi wanted to pick out the fact that despite being marked by the physical Bologna midfielder Jerdy Schouten, De Ketelaere was able to come out on top in many duels.

“He is growing physically. Against Bologna he was marked by Schouten, who is a fairly tough nut to crack, and in the battles the Belgian almost always got the better of him,” Borghi said.

There is always a fear with young players making the step up to an elite European league that they will get swallowed up physically.

That does not seem to be the case for De Ketelaere who got the assist for Rafael Leao to open the scoring at San Siro on Saturday night.

      1. Indeed bb as he could already have had 3-4 assists had other players not squandered his good work. Add to that he could also have had a goal if i remember correctly had he not been a bit unlucky.
        As ive said before, de ketelaere will turn out as one of the best aquisitions done all summer in europe.

        1. I didn’t say he wasn’t dangerous but with a bit more muscle he’ll be the best AM itw in 2-3 seasons which considering this absolute monster just turned 21 is insane

          1. Neither did i say that you said so as i got your point of him buffing up would potentially make him even more dangerous so no t bad will from here or anything 🙂 Im so excited that we was able to sign him and a year ago i would never have believed we would have been able to do so as i expected other richer clubs propably would buy him at minimum 45-50 mil euroes. We clearly made a scoop here.

      2. Very dangerous…😈

        His childish looks are so deceptive but defenders will be utterly destroyed by this looming milan attacking destructive force…😈😈😈

  1. Just let him growth . Dont burden him with next kaka or the next kevin de bruyne. Need to increase his body balance & hope he avoid injury

  2. @gigi, muscles never play football, if you’re good, you’re good. It has nothing to do with muscles. Cdk is a pure talent
