Ordine: No more ‘psycho-physical explanations’ can be used for ‘lost marble’ De Ketelaere

By Oliver Fisher -

Journalist Franco Ordine has branded Charles De Ketelaere a lost cause as he continues to miss golden opportunities to break his AC Milan duck.

De Ketelaere arrived at Milan for over €30m from Club Brugge and after a season with the Belgian side in which he racked up 18 goals and 10 assists across all competitions many thought he could well be the playmaker that the Rossoneri were looking for.

However, he is yet to score a goal for the club and has just one assist to his name, all while the other signings from the window such as Divock Origi, Aster Vranckx, Sergino Dest and Yacine Adli have all failed to establish themselves too.

Ordine wrote his weekly column for MilanNews and it took on a rather critical tone of the current state of affairs, but in particular he had some interesting things to say about De Ketelaere.

“Stefano Pioli ‘had’ to resort to the much discussed and highly criticised summer market. He couldn’t do anything else. He can’t keep playing the same 11 between now and May 16th,” Ordine began.

“He looked around and unfortunately found the desert! He deployed Origi among other things in his favourite area, on the left, he also bet once again on CDK leaving him in the lane he often occupied with Club Brugge, on the right in an inverted role.

“Sorry what more did they want? Their yield was as follows: zero. With a striking difference: Origi managed to create at least a couple of chances, the other Belgian, costing a fortune, had the opportunity to carve out a different ending with a comfortable ball that could have changed the outcome of the game and also personal destiny.

“He stumbled over the most beautiful chance as can only happen to a 10 year old boy! At this point it is no longer possible to climb onto the mirrors of psycho-physical explanations: gentlemen, give up, the boy with crew cut hair is a lost marble!”

  1. Respectfully in a moment like this, where we are in a crisis as we may not qualify for champions League, what’s the point in targeting a player in particular especially one who has already been criticized tremendously this season. We should be criticising the club on a whole, this includes the squad, pioli, Gerry cardinale and even maldini and massara.

  2. Well

    Trotters Independent Traders also have Florenzi, Rebic and Ibrahimovic who are well paid without any Impact this season.

    So if TIT (RedBird and Elliott) want to continue use same logic, next season without Europe they should bring best primavera players and sell everyone: BaloToure, Gabbia, Florenzi, De Keteleare, Adli, Origi, Rebic. Also we can expect that Bakayoko, Dest, Diaz, Vranckx, Tatarusanu, Mirante, Ibrahimovic, leave for free.

    That’s 14 names that will free a lot of money in terms of salaries. And if they can’t sell first 7 named players for at least 70 million, Trotters Independent Traders (RedBird Elliott) should leave fuc*ing Europe as soon as possible.

    12 Milan primavera players would reach Champions league with solid 12 Ac Milan first team players easily…

    1. I always get MBappe to Milan in the first year of Career Mode. Also, when you’re finished puffing, please pass. It’s called puff puff pass for a reason. I’ve also seen people smoke crack but never saw someone post about it online like this. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

      1. You are high on crack ? Who cares….? Trotters Independent Traders fan.

        Juventus next gen players: Matias Soule, Samuel Illing Junior, Enzo Barrenechea, Fabio Miretti, Nicolo Fagioli. Those are 5 important players now in Juventus first team or Allegri rotation, but you needed to tell us you are high on crack, dumb imbecile…
        Juventus has at least 5 more from next gen who are in other serie a team sent on loan …

  3. Yeah they all should go somewhere…over the rainbow…way up high. There’s a land that i heard of…once in a lullaby…

  4. Worst transfer in Milan history.
    32-35 mil and we got nothing from him this year.
    People say he will be better next season, well, that’s not hard. If he scores 1 goal next season he would already do better than this year. The bar is set so low i don’t think it can get worse but that still doesn’t justify spending 35 mil on him.

    1. No , he is not the worst. So far the worst are bonucci 40m euro ACM buy from juve and then swap him again with caldara from juve. We give juve 40m euro for Caldara that always injury . CDK more like paqueta case,both are flamboyan and not fit with coach tactic
