Yunus Musah has been one of the most impressive summer signings thus far and he has been used a lot in recent weeks, with Stefano Pioli keen to give him some rest today.
MilanNews write how Musah has established himself as a starter in the three-man midfield thanks to excellent performances, especially in the period in which both Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Rade Krunic were missing, leaving the department very thin numerically.
Today, in Lecce, the American is expected to start from the bench so that he can recover his breath a bit. While it is true that Musah is only 20 years old and is certainly at full strength, it is also true that for a month now he has been playing virtually all the time.
From the game on 4 October against Borussia Dortmund he has always been in the line-up from minute one, with starts against Genoa, Germany, Ghana (both with the USA), Juventus, PSG, Napoli, Udinese and PSG to his name.
That is a total of nine games from the first minute, and if you consider that in the upcoming international break he will be used by Gregg Berhalter, Pioli’s choice to preserve him today appears wise.
