MN: Two key reasons why Rebic’s return is crucial for Milan and Pioli

By Isak Möller -

Ante Rebic has recovered from the injury he sustained in the game against Hellas Verona, now back at Stefano Pioli’s disposal. It’s a big boost for the manager who now will have more options in attack. 

As highlighted by MilanNews, the winger has been out for more than two weeks, forcing Rafael Leao to play five consecutive games from start between Serie A and Champions League. In fact, the derby tonight will be the youngster’s sixth game.

Rebic’s return means that Pioli will be able to rotate more in attack and, above all, give Leao the rest that he needs. In addition to this aspect, the Croatian adds something different to the Rossoneri’s attack and that will also be crucial.

He has two goals and two assists in ten games this season, ready to improve his record now that the injury isn’t bothering him anymore. In short, his return could turn out to be very important for Milan.
