Watch: Highlights of Chaka Traore’s impressive display in Milan vs. Lemine

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan faced Lemine Almenno in a friendly clash earlier today and one of the youngsters that got a chance was Chaka Traore. The winger impressed with his quick feet and almost got on the scoresheet. 

The friendly, which was announced just a few days ago, finished 3-0 as Junior Messias, Ante Rebic and Matteo Gabbia found the back of the net for Milan. Lemine, it should be noted, are an amateur side.

In the video below (Courtesy of MilanComps), you can see the highlights of Traore’s performance as he came on for the final 20 minutes (three 20-minute periods). He got on the scoresheet with a backheel but it was ruled out for offside.

  1. In the Bundesliga I think Chaka would’ve already been given first team football last season. But chances are that he will never be found ready for the first time in Italy until it’s too late and he leaves us. Just like it happened with Kerkez. Pioli would rather have the useless Ballo Toure as first reserve on left back, and that cost us a very talented alternative…

    1. 1. I really doubt a Bundesliga club especially big ones like Bayern or Dortmund to promote 17-18 years old players to the first team just because they plays good against an amateur team in a pre-season match lol. You clearly don’t know jackshi*t about Bundesliga.

      2. Kerkez didn’t do anything special with Az Alkmaar. So it’s funny that you act as if Kerkez is one of the best LB in the world when in fact he just another talented 18 year old boy. That’s it. If he replaces Balo Toure, he will be another backup for Theo for years.

  2. I have to agree with you Mickey. We lost a great prospect in Kerkez. Every time I watched him I play I was impressed. Pioli has to take more risks and trust these young players. After all, it’s supposed to be our remit. Young talent, for low cost and develop our own champions.

    1. Kerkez wants first team slot aka he wants to replace Theo who currently is one if not the best LB in the world. If i’m on Pioli shoes, i will do the same to put Kerkez in the bench and let him learn from the best until he’s ready.

      Also, 17-18 years old players are still growing. Keyboard warriors like you can easily talk “oh Pioli should take some risk and give these toddlers more playing time”. But if these kids got injured badly before their body old enough to take it, it can end their football career and who’s to blame for that? The coach.

  3. Young talent like Leao, Tonali, Kalulu, Saelemakers, Diaz, T. Hernandez. Do people forget we have the youngest title winning side in the top 5 leagues. Pobega and Adli have come in and are now getting their chance too, we gave donnarumma the gk shirt at 16? if there is one team that gives young players a chance it is AC Milan, he will get his chance in due time, let him grow a little 1st. As for kerkez he was demanding 1st team action as soon as we signed him, his attitude is what got him shipped out of Milan, If he had a little patience I am sure he would have got his chance,

    1. I heard it was Kerkez father who asked Maldini/Pioli that his boy should quickly replace Theo who currently is one if not the best LB in the world. Now the boy didn’t do anything special with Az Alkmaar. I hope Kerkez and his father learn the lesson.
