MN: Pioli’s faith in Hauge repaid – his commitment and attitude is undeniable

By Oliver Fisher -

One of the few positives from today’s draw against Sampdoria at San Siro was seeing Jens Petter Hauge’s name on the scoresheet once again.

As MilanNews writes, the young Norwegian showed great character and a strong will to redeem himself from some difficult weeks during which he has not been at his best and has seen his playing time decrease.

It does not help that sections of the fan base have been too quick to judge some of Milan’s young players – not just Hauge – as hasty assessment and the label of ‘flop’ means that patience is an ever-decreasing virtue. Despite the doubts raised in recent months, trust in Hauge has always been present at Milanello as the player has always worked with great commitment and with the right attitude.

We saw this from the moment he took the field against Sampdoria as Hauge not only scored the equaliser but was among the most dangerous players in a game where the team really struggled to get going.

The trust was granted by Pioli and was repaid by Hauge on the pitch, and hopefully this is proof that the former Bodo/Glimt man could have a big impact in the final nine games.

    Can’t believe what I just read. Piolo´s faith in Hauge 😆

    He humiliated our golden boy several times. The fans wanted him to play but Pioli didn’t let him.

    Come on, don’t write this crap please.

      I say Hauge saved Pioli’s ass. Pioli had more faith in other players like Krunic.

    2. Alan Little says:

      Exactly mate no faith at all in HAUGE kept playing castillijo and krunic on the right.pioli has made some stupid mistakes in playing people out of position, but surely he can see in training how good HAUGE is and he never plays him.

    And in returns pioli will bench him in next match again.

      This pioli man need to be sack
      Imagine! Playing krunic is that position while hauge was bench

    Pioli Is an average Coach and shouldn’t be in charge of Milan.
    Why would you always start with average players before bringing the better ones to salvage the mess they created.
    Pioli Milan major problems this season.

    Pioli must be sacked…we need to bring in a manger that actually knows what he is doing..He left Hauge out of our UEL squad..despite scoring 6 goals in that competition..then he plays Krunic And Castillejo while Diaz,Rebic and Huge were on bench.

    I agree with all of you in this comments, pioli is the main problem, he is very poor in tactics and very weak in arrange the composition of the player on the pitch, milan will not go further in the ucl if we still doing this, thats a lot of coach out there who better than pioli, we thank him for the cherrish moments in the past but milan must embrace the future to become “a big club” again

    Its comman mistakes makes milan back pioli is a fearful he can’t performe in champion

  7. SamsonNite says:

    Pioli should have more trust in Hauge and Kalulu. They can become great players if given some games from start.

  8. Marius says:

    15-20 minutes .. you call that faith in hauge? I call this more like desperate measures…. The poor Pioli failed again with his stupid tactics and after he realised what he had done, called in the boy. As someone here said earlier, i am almost sure hauge will not start in the next mach…

  9. Zymotix says:

    Milan will not reach the target,if they let pioli is still in charge. Wtf , maldini n masssara doing ???? If they watch the game,they need to react. Sack pioli . I really hate this mediocre coach he’s real problems of milan

  10. Heri says:
