Tuttosport: Five players praised and four players questioned after 6-0 win over Pro Sesto

By Oliver Fisher -

Newspaper Tuttosport have praised a number of AC Milan players for their performances during Saturday’s 6-0 friendly win against Pro Sesto.

The Rossoneri got their preseason campaign off to a flying start as goals from Ismael Bennacer, Rafael Leao, Samu Castillejo, an own-goal and a late brace from Milos Kerkez saw the Serie C side off emphatically at Milanello.

Tuttosport (via MilanNews) lists the Milan players who distinguished themselves in yesterday’s friendly win, starting by remarking that there was a good performance from Theo Hernandez who looked to be ‘already in league form’ as well as Matteo Gabbia in his unfamiliar right-back role.

Bennacer was praised as the Algerian scored the first goal for the Rossoneri, Samu Castillejo received praise for his goal too and the very young Kerkez impressed in the final stages.

There were also some players picked out for their poor performances, such as Sandro Tonali (a bit lazy, writes the Turin newspaper), Rade Krunic (deployed on the left wing), Daniel Maldini (physically still too light) and Jens Petter Hauge (hit the post but did little else).

  1. Hauge shouldn’t be on that list of underperformed players. He should be given a starting spot next time and i will bet my cash on him to shine

  2. the thing with Hauge is that his mind wasn’t there (I reckon it has to do with his imminent departure)
    he even had a moment where he blatantly ignored Pioli who was shouting at/telling him something

    1. Seems true, Hauge never got trust from pioli.pioli prefer to deploy krunic as left winger rather than Hauge,and everyone knows that his better than krunic.
