MN: Pobega enjoying more trust from Pioli after ‘very positive’ Sampdoria display

By Oliver Fisher -

Tommaso Pobega got yet another start under his belt during AC Milan’s 2-1 victory against Sampdoria at the Marassi last night, and Stefano Pioli was happy with his contribution.

MilanNews recall Pioli’s comments on the performance of Pobega after the game: “I evaluate the performance in a very positive way, it is yet another proof that the players need to grow, play, make mistakes. He was technically clean, he is very good in the insertions and physically he is strong. He made a very positive performance, I am happy. He works very well and gives a lot every day.”

After loan spells in Pordenone, Spezia and Torino, the feeling is that Pobega is gaining increasing confidence from Pioli. He made his Champions League debut against Salzburg in midweek, and then his second start in Serie A for the Rossoneri last night.

His physicality immediately stands out at 1.88m in height and with a broad frame, and that is helping him to gradually insert himself in a complex and well-established tactical environment. With Rade Krunic injured and Aster Vranckx still adapting, Pobega is the first alternative in midfield.

He has totally different characteristics compared to Tonali, Krunic and Bennacer but provides the coach with the physicality that the team lost in the middle of the field with Franck Kessie’s farewell. However, the 23-year-old can become an efficient and useful player who – after Calabria and Gabbia – could become the latest Primavera product to carve out a key role.

    1. @jesus
      Who is better than kessie in Passing the ball? Pobega is playing because vrancxx is not yet up to speed and milan is not ready to competebin Europe….dude plays likeban old man who have something to prove, giroud at 36 moves fastee than him…PLEAS change that name first, cos even Jesus wont like this blind staTement of yours, are yOu drunk or on drugS..

      Sempermilan you need to start banning kids from here

    2. 🤣🤣😂😂😂 ppl on here smoking crack or something. Even the writers. Wow. Pobega better than Kessie? In which world? Kessie is top 5 defensive kids in Europe. Pobega plays because Tonali and Bennacer needs a rest, not because he’s particularly good. Wait til Vrancx and Thiaw get up to speed. You ain’t seeing him

  1. Wonder what your companion is saying about him next pod…He is good enough against these kinds of teams at least. But I doubt he will ever be a top-class midfielder.

  2. No he was not good! He didn’t look promising. Who the hell is writing this propaganda. He is 23 has been playing in serie a for two years. He’s not a budding talent like CDK he is who he is. He blew another break away. Lost far more duels than he won and otherwise seemed happy to let the game pass him by.

  3. Semper keep writing rubbish, you are simply discrediting yourself……not everything is worth writing, quality over quantity is what makes difference In media
