Pioli jumps to defence of ‘important’ Brahim Diaz and describes struggles as ‘normal’

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli has jumped to the defence of struggling playmaker Brahim Diaz, insisting he can still be important in the season finale.

After consecutive draws against Bologna and Torino during which Milan failed to score, the feeling is that the critical issues of the Rossoneri squad have been exposed and the attack is a big part of that. Messias and Saelemaekers struggle to contibute anything from the right, while Brahim Diaz has not scored since 25 September 2021.

Pioli spoke to the reporters who gathered on the eve of the game against Genoa at San Siro about a number of different topics such as the recent scoring woes and the Scudetto race, and he was asked about Brahim Diaz.

“He has had a drop in condition, it’s normal in such a long season. Even after Covid he played some good games. Brahim is a quality player who will be important from now to the end,” he said (via MilanNews).

Calciomercato.com reported that a meeting between Milan and Real Madrid is expected at the end of the season to take stock of his situation and while Brahim is attached to Milan and would like to stay for at least another season but doubts remain and he must convince in the final six games.

  1. Diaz is beyond struggling. He is simply not Milan calibre, you can’t be AM and not do you anything since September!
    It would be a great time to prove me wrong though

  2. if being struggle is normal for him, then he shoundn’t be doing that at Milan. We are not the place to be struggle at
