AC Milan are enjoying hearing about how well Yacine Adli is getting on during his loan spell at Bordeaux, as they get ready to welcome him for the 2022-23 season.
La Gazzetta dello Sport writes how Adli nearly put himself top of the pile for the Puskas award during Bordeaux’s game against Strasbourg, during which he shot from the halfway line and scored, but the referee decided to disallow it because he had not blown his whistle for play to restart.
Nonetheless, Adli has now put Bordeaux on his shoulders in their fight against relegation. Les Girondins are fourth-bottom with 20 points, one ahead of Metz and 3 from Lorient. Adli was bought by the Rossoneri over the summer for€10m and was left on loan, with Bordeaux now probably glad they got him back.
So far the playmaker has played all 22 league games, with 6 assists and 1 goal in that period. In a 3-2 defeat against PSG, Adli received the compliments of Titì Henry: “You were brave, today I saw a new Adli.”
If it were up to Adli he would have packed his bags in the summer and moved to Milan immediately, but another season in France can only do him good, and while waiting to know the fate of other players the Rossoneri management can rest assured that they have secured a gym.
