Tuttosport: Pioli has major dilemma ahead of Napoli game – desire for redemption vs. reliability

By Oliver Fisher -

Stefano Pioli has a difficult selection decision to make ahead of Sunday night’s crucial game against Napoli at San Siro, a report claims.

This morning’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews) reports that his main doubt is who to play as the playmaker behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic. While logic says Brahim Diaz as he is the most natural interpreter of the role, the Spaniard is going through a period of poor form.

However, it must be considered that a big night like the one on Sunday could bring him to life. A more open game could help him find some stimuli and could allow him to re-emerge at a level of performance everyone expects.

Rade Krunic is also being considered for the role though, as by now it has become clear that Pioli finds him useful and effective. The Bosnian guarantees greater physicality and balance while he can also play close to Ibrahimovic. Pioli holds him in high regard and is thinking of starting him.

  1. What is happening with Daniel Maldini.
    Brahim most likely will be leaving in 23 and Krunic will not get any better or younger. Daniel is our future, but without challenges he too may simply leave

  2. All said true. If milan mid dont work play krunic there. Put ur messi(jk i said too much there) in the attacking spot. And if brahim cant perform why why why him put maldini. Check him before he leaves and proves to be superb. Like pobega. Try kalulu in theo place also one thing i want.
