Simon Kjaer was a very important player for Milan this past season as he was a true leader in the defence, while also guiding the entire team. With his contract expiring next summer, a renewal is a must for the Dane.
As highlighted by MilanNews, we can acknowledge his importance by not only looking at the games he featured in, but also the ones he didn’t. The No.24’s experience and quality has been of great value to the Rossoneri, who could now make him the captain.
Arriving at the club during what was a tough period, he quickly showed why Milan need him on the pitch with impressive performances. Above all, though, he displayed leadership that few players have on the pitch.
Currently with Denmark at the Euros, Kjaer’s long football season isn’t over yet. Earlier today, his agent Mikkel Beck confirmed that there will be talks with Milan for a renewal; comments that confirm that they want to continue together.
And for the Rossoneri, now back in the Champions League, the renewal of the centre-back is indeed crucial. With many youngsters in the squad experience is needed and who better to help with this than Kjaer, who also has impressed with his performances.
