Milan, Gazzetta: “Theo, no Empoli, but there is an alternative”

MILAN, GAZZETTA – As reported by the Gazzetta, the Milan team is looking for a really important way to replace Theo.

Milan, Gazzetta: “Theo, no Empoli, but there is an alternative”

“The deputy and the captain A deputy, in pink, would be there: Fodé Ballo-Touré was taken for this and it would be up to him to take over the left wing in the absence of the very titular. The point is that the former Monaco never really got into the part: partly because Hernandez is a cannibal who devours the field and minutes by dint of super performance – Theo is Pioli’s most used player in his career, 11.184 minutes – and partly because Ballo-Touré has objectively struggled so far (even Florenzi, who would do the right-hand side by profession, has overtaken him). In one season and a few months in Milan, Ballo-Touré has put together 13 appearances: no call, especially in the big matches played as a starter. Like last season’s first leg derby or Porto’s away match in the Champions League, again in 2021-22: on both occasions, Pioli corrected his shot by recalling him to the bench before the hour of play, moving Calabria to the left and entrusting the right lane to Kalulu, with Kjaer and Tomori in the center of defense. It is an option that we could review against Chelsea. Unless Ballo-Touré convinces his coach in Empoli, where he could start as a starter ”.
