MN: Hauge has not played a minute since equaliser against Sampdoria – Pioli’s choices baffle

By Oliver Fisher -

Despite AC Milan’s continuing struggles in the year of 2021, one player who continues to be left in the dark is winger Jens Petter Hauge.

Milan have now scored one goal or less in five of their last nine games, which is simply not enough when the defensive contribution also appears to be dipping given the six goals conceded in the last three games, for example.

As MilanNews writes, Hauge continues to find very little playing time despite Milan’s difficult period. The young Norwegian – after scoring the equaliser in the final minutes of Milan’s 1-1 draw against Sampdoria on April 3 – has not played a minute since.

Indeed, in the following 4 matches against Parma, Genoa, Sassuolo and Lazio yesterday, he did not take the field at all. The choices of Stefano Pioli have relegated him to 0 minutes played in the last four games played. “Perhaps, given that the forwards are not shining, it would also be appropriate to give Hauge a few more chances,” the report remarks.

    Pioli needs to go now. His time is up. No vision, no urgency, no game plan. Always predictable routine game. Painful to watch.

    I’m tried of Pioli selections. Hauge is our wonder kid and still he is always on the bench. Is this how we will play and qualify for UCL? Pioli need to play Hauge if we most qualify for UCL or else I don’t see us qualifying.

    Pioli out..this guy is ruining the youngsters at this point. He left Maldini and Colombo on bench while Krunic and Castillejo play.Useless coach

    1. rivera says:

      Christophe Galtier from Lille could be a good fit for Milan to replace Pioli

      Yes his player selection is poor with Krunic preferred and no spark or creativity in midfield plus very soft up the middle

      Hauge has been left out in important games and he is only one confident in front of goal with plenty of running forward
      Why Pioli???????

    Pioli irrelevant, please sack him now…WORST COACH IN SERIE A.. All what happened in Milan was Ibra effect. Hes plain garbage

  5. Zumblim says:

    Pioli is just a typical old fashioned italian manager who relies on the so called experience. That is the reason he keeps playing krunic,samu or even mandzukic who has never been playing for 10 months over Hauge. He has no faith on young players. Other example, he prefer Dalot over kalulu.
    He must leave milan, even if milan qualify to CL.

    Surely this haopen when you have an interisti as a head coach.

    Pioli is what he has always been – mediocre. Thanks to him for getting us back to respectability but predictably he always tanks at the end and can never finish with a wining season. Need someone with vision and who can make tactical adjustments during matches. He still has not adjusted when we play against a 3-5-2. Can’t solve it. His choices playing Krunic over Hauge or meite over Tonali is baffling. Time to go.

    Pioli needs to go… how do you expect hauge to adapt when he is not given playing time…. Hauge has proved himself many times… hauge is meant to be our future Kaka… Buh instead Pioli chooses krunic and castillejo… Nonsense Coach… Gave us hope and dashed it like the true trash he is

    Lille coach would be perfect for Milan. And i believe he could come very easy as Singers have business ongoing with Lille owner. He made a really strong team in France, one that can match PSG and it’s milions. Way better than jokePioli. I agree ibra effect was the case for milan old form and he shouldn’t be renewed for 7 milions / year ( aprox 15 mil gross). Hauge, kalulu, leao, diaz… All this faces are wellcomed.. i really prefer to see youngsters play bad than ibra/madsukic/ krunic and co play the same shity slow and predictible attacing games.

    Pioli should be sacked,that it, Milan needs a more professional and tactical coach

  11. Charisma maduka says:

    I keep saying it! Give Mauro Tassotti a chance to coach milan. Elliot management and Gazidis has to wake up and remove all the italians in milan management even maldini. We milan fans are not here for past glories and legendary when milan as a club keep sinking.

    1. RF says:

      Well said dude.

  12. RF says:

    I cant imagine if Haaland join ours. He could be the next Hauge in terms of playing. Sick.
