MN: Giampaolo has two positions in mind for Bonaventura

By Oliver Fisher -

Giacomo Bonaventura could be used in behind the strikers by head coach Marco Giampaolo next season, a report claims.

Bonaventura returned to the playing field against Manchester United in Cardiff on Saturday, coming off the bench to mark his first appearance for the Rossoneri in 282 days.

Multiple reports from the media have suggested that the 29-year-old, who turns 30 later this month, is being viewed by Giampaolo as a very important midfielder in his squad.

At the moment, the former Atalanta man is being considered for two different positions, according to

The Italian midfielder could be deployed as a midfielder – most likely the LCM position in a 4-3-1-2 system – or as a playmaker behind the two strikers.

Bonaventura has racked up 31 goals and 16 assists in his 152 games with the Rossoneri shirt, a number that he will be looking to increase in a season of ‘redemption’.
