Among the many other positives from Stefano Pioli’s tenure as Milan boss so far, the head coach has also boosted the value of so many young players within the squad.
As La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) reports, the “Normal One” originally arrived as what many thought would be an interim head coach after Marco Giampaolo’s disastrous 111-day reign. Thanks to his excellent management of the squad he has overseen the enhancement of young player, who today are worth a treasure.
We start with the wingers Rafael Leao and Alexis Saelemaekers, who are now away with the Portuguese and Belgian national teams respectively. Then there is full-back Theo Hernandez and playmaker Brahim Diaz who are away with France and Spain, plus Fikayo Tomori, Ismael Bennacer and Franck Kessie.
Pioli has shaped the team by convincing the players of his ideas and his man-management is impressive. This is seen through Alessio Romagnoli, who accepted the new hierarchies in the defence without a problem and has maintained complete professionalism.
