MN: Milan players granted one day of rest by Pioli after convincing friendly win

By Isak Möller -

Milan kicked off their pre-season tour earlier today with a friendly against Serie C side Pro Sesto. They managed to find the back of the net six times and didn’t concede either, resulting in a convincing win. 

Ismael Bennacer, Rafael Leao, Samu Castillejo and surprisingly, Milos Kerkez X2, were the goalscorers for Milan this afternoon. Pro Sesto’s goalkeeper was also noted for an unlucky own-goal, as an effort that hit the post rebounded off him.

According to MilanNews, Stefano Pioli decided to grant his players one day of rest and that will be tomorrow (Sunday). Training will resume at Milanello on Monday as there are more friendly games to come for the Rossoneri.

Next time out we might see new signings Olivier Giroud and Fode Ballo-Toure involved in the action, as well as Brahim Diaz who has returned from Real Madrid. However, we will just have to wait and see on that.

  1. Hi SempreMilan team! thank your for the blog! been a fan of your dedication for our beloved team 🔴⚫️

    I don’t think it’s a convincing win tbh, from the first half (when most of our senior players got a start), we did scored 3 goals but none of them were a set-play goals. the playing pattern still worry me.. last season on our prime we got a good attacking flow with Hakan (no matter how bad he was, he really was one of our better player, esp when he is on form).

    nevertheless, it’s always good to see milan play, i like kerkez and his attacking intention, Roback, and Pobega also looks good. Keep us updated SempreMilan, Forza Milan!
