Tuttosport: Pioli could field Hauge to switch things up for Fiorentina vs. Milan

By Isak Möller -

Milan have struggled to score lately and will need to pick themselves up quickly, as the top-four race is getting tighter for each game. And as a result, Stefano Pioli is considering some changes to the starting XI. 

The Rossoneri are still struggling with many injuries and it remains to be seen if Zlatan Ibrahimovic can play the game from start, but seems he will. This will be an important boost for the team, of course, as he’s a great champion.

Another change in attack, as reported by Tuttosport (via MilanNews), could be to replace Rade Krunic with Jens Petter Hauge. The latter had a promising start to the season but has faded a bit since, but he would add some unpredictability to the side.

Pioli will speak to the media at the usual press conference in just a few minutes and he should provide some answers to these questions. Either way, it’s clear something needs to change in order to change the negative trend.

    He has not regressed….Pioli refuses to play him as a central striker…where he scored all his goals early in the season.Pioli is too rigid…and doesn’t give young players their due playing time.

      Hauge as central striker?! Jesus… Where do you get your logic, and do you even know which player we’re talking about?!

    Hauge no se diluyó fue Pioli quien lo diluyó… de acuerdo, Pioli muy rígido, no lo inscribió en la UEL prefirió a Mandzuchic, que no tenía ritmo…

    As much as he has regressed indeed, the bigger question is why? How come these things started to happen to the player who came and (even more importantly) began his Milan journey with a great confidence and self-esteem!? So, how come certain players aren’t playing along with him (mainly Theo), what is Pioli doing about it (it seems like nothing but benching him) & are they doing something in the trainings to make the boy rediscover hat he’d lost in the last few months?!
    When we bought him & after the first 2 months, we were all so happy that we got the same level player as Chiesa, only more than 10 times cheaper, then he’s suddenly dropped from the coaches plans! Is that a progressive way of working with him, so you’re surprised how come he regressed?!
