MN: Hauge prepared for his big opportunity – he has convinced everyone he is ready

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli is ready to grant Jens Petter Hauge his first start and an opportunity to impress in the Europa League against Lille.

As MilanNews reports, Milan will take to the field at the Stade Pierre Mauroy without Zlatan Ibrahimovic, which means Ante Rebic will be the centre-forward and with no Rafael Leao either, Hauge has his space on the left.

Except for any drastic late changes, it seems that Pioli and the rest of the coaching staff are ready to put their faith in Hauge, who scored his first Serie A goal on Sunday against Napoli.

The Norwegian talent has convinced everyone, from pundits to fans, his team-mates and, of course, Stefano Pioli. Hauge is therefore preparing to demonstrate his unpredictability and his quality in front of goal.
