Pordenone president admits interest in trying to keep on-loan AC Milan starlet

By Oliver Fisher -

Pordenone’s club president has revealed a desire to try and keep on-loan AC Milan midfielder Tommaso Pobega beyond the summer.

Pobega has been in the Milan Primavera set up since 2013, and last summer he was loaned out to Serie B side Pordenone until June of this year.

Tuttosport reported just before the Coronavirus emergency that the Rossoneri are keeping a close eye on the progress of Pobega, who has been on loan for two seasons.

From a central midfield role he has amassed five goals and three assists in 19 league appearances, and he only became a starter towards the end of November under head coach Attilio Tesser.

Pordenone are believed to have an option to buy inserted into the one-year loan but Milan have a counter-option on that to buy him back, which could very well be exercised given his impressive displays this season.

Now, the president of Pordenone – Mauro Lovisa – spoke to Sportitalia’s microphones about the future of Pobega and his words were transcribed by MilanNews.

“He is Milan-worthy, we will see if there will be the possibility of keeping him in the future,” he said.

“We also have other young people of great potential such as Di Gregorio and Voiacco, but the important thing is to start playing again.”
