MN: Hauge and Milan reflecting on the future – a loan could be the right solution for all

By Oliver Fisher -

As we head into the summer transfer window, AC Milan must examine what to do with winger Jens Petter Hauge ahead of next season.

As MilanNews writes, it has been a season of ups and downs for Hauge since his surprise arrival from Bodo/Glimt last year as the Norwegian talent exploded onto the scene after joining but is now struggling for playing time, having not played a single minute since scoring the equaliser in a 1-1 draw against Sampdoria.

Despite the doubts raised in recent months, there has always been trust in Hauge from the management. The player has always worked with great commitment and with the right attitude at Milanello and has never had polemical or negative attitudes, often showning himself to be involved in both the positive and negative moments of the season.

The little space he has found in this second part of the season and and his ongoing adaptation to Italian football pushes Milan and the player himself to assessments. Hauge needs space to grow and that is why a loan spell could be ideal, even better if to a mid-level Serie A club. In a team with less pressure, the Norwegian could hone his qualities and enhance his talent before returning more mature to Milan.

  1. Clearly not enough trust to give him consistent playing time though evidently. Pressure can create gems, and bring out the best in players, if given faith and opportunities at the right times. For instance, even if pioli had kept giving him minutes at the end of games as a small reward after his performance against sampdoria atleast it would’ve been something to build on, now what will he think, he’s young and that could affect his confidence, this favouritism game and playing it safe by not having the balls or “grinta” to really trust a player even for a few minutes after he does well is getting us nowhere, and relying on the same players (Castillejo) who work hard but don’t even contribute or affect the game is not even giving us a champions league place apparently that was our objective or what even is it at this point, accommodating pioli so that he can afford to pay his barber for his bald head shaves? So that he can keep it lubricated well enough to stick it up players like Meites a$&? Why else would he throw him on expecting him to affect the game offensively against Cagliari I’m sorry but then the most inexperienced coach knows at that point in a game like that throw on all your attacking options when you’re approach is to throw the kitchen sink for the last 10 minutes, I’d rather risk it against Cagliari than in desperation because time is up against Atalanta who you’ll have a lot less luck against, which I’m guessing is what he’s relying on now, a club like Milan, once great I guess.

  2. Are there some kind of bonus to his former club if he plays more than x games, this season? Please do some inquiries, as no one on the outside is understanding why Hauge doesn’t get the chance, even not late in the games.

    1. Because pioli is not fair to him and the board too are not helping Hauge I expecting a game like turino he have some minutes in his grips but no
