The latest indications from multiple sources suggests that Theo Hernandez will be used as a central defender tonight against Frosinone, which will cause a reshuffle at the back.
According to Sky (seen below) and MilanNews, Stefano Pioli is now not expected to field Primavera centre-back Jan-Carlo Simic from the first minute and instead the 18-year-old will begin the game on the bench.
Instead, Fikayo Tomori will slide over to the right-sided centre-back position with Theo Hernandez partnering him in a role that he has never played for Milan from minute one.
Then, Davide Bartesaghi is expected to be the left-back in what would be his first Serie A start, having gone on the preseason tour of the United States and with a couple of substitute league appearances to his name so far.
It is certainly a bold call by Pioli to tinker so much with the left side, even with the injury issues, because Frosinone’s main threat Soule players on the right.
