CM: Pioli’s probable choice sends a clear message to struggling Brahim Diaz

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is expected to field Franck Kessie as the attacking midfielder tomorrow against Napoli, and it sends another signal to Brahim Diaz. report how it is ‘almost certain’ that Brahim Díaz will not be in the starting eleven to face Napoli and it will no doubt be disappointing for the Spanish playmaker, who is yet to find consistent form and has only shown glimpses of quality since being out with Covid.

In the most important games recently, the Real Madrid loanee has always started from the bench as Pioli has chosen different tactical solutions, including moving Kessie out of his usual position and even playing Rade Krunic.

Simply put, it is a sign to Brahim Diaz that he should raise the level of his performances if he wants to have a guaranteed starting spot in the big games, because without him playing at a good level the Rossoneri suffer.

  1. No, Maldini’s plan is to field Adli in the #10 position. What a joke!

    We can’t keep making excuses for blunder these guy commit.

    1. We are equal first in the league and before Brahim got Covid he was in our top 3 performers every game.

      Bennacer struggled all of last season after getting Covid so I think we should be a little more understanding towards Brahim and the management because making comments in hindsight is pretty easy.

      1. This. Im with Adrian on this.
        I don’t get it really, why so many hate to Maldini and the management? You guys remember where we were 2 and a half years ago? Transitions arent easy, trust me, my office is on transition since 3 yrs ago and we’re still aligning things over and over again.
        Milan management? Yes they aint perfect, but boy they did one hell of a job, mid table team to scudetto contenders in 1 year and a half? I’ll give them time.
