CM: Pioli resolves any doubts about De Ketelaere’s role – a start against Udinese is likely

By Oliver Fisher -

The early signs from Charles De Ketelaere are very positive and there seems to be no doubts about his position at AC Milan, a report claims.

According to, head coach Stefano Pioli already knows that the starting role for the Belgian is as the central attacking midfielder in Pioli’s 4-2-3-1. After good signs in the 6-1 win over Vicenza, De Ketelaere played against Pergolettese at Milanello on Sunday and showed off his entire repertoire, scoring with a penalty, a left-footed shot and a header.

Paolo Maldini has always been convinced that De Ketelaere was the right man and he never gave up on signing him. Whether it is 4-2-3-1 system or a 4-3-1-2 – which the report claims is a first alternative – the idea is that the Belgian will be the link between midfield and attack, providing end product himself too.

There is just five days until Milan kick off the 2022-23 season against Udinese at San Siro and it is likely that De Ketelaere will start, with Saelemaekers on the right side and Leao on the other.

    Start CDK on the right. Adli in the middle and Leao on the left.

    Saladmaker is absolutely abysmal!!! Why is he even still here? Starting is even worse!

  2. Agree…
    Better put Leao, Adli n CDK behind the striker, with Adli n CDK can switch position between AM and right wing…depend on situation on the pitch
