Keisuke Honda returned from international duty with a minor injury and is unavailable for tomorrow against Atalanta and so Mattia De Sciglio is expected to start in an unfamiliar role.

‘Model professional’ Honda is out of the squad for tomorrow’s match against Atalanta (Sunday, 15:00 CET kickoff). And so Mihajlovic is forced to find different solutions in midfield as the Japanese, who picked up a foot injury during the latest international break, is a starting XI player.

Mihajlovic has Andrea Poli and Kevin-Prince Boateng who can play on the wing but according to reports across Italy (Milannews.it, Gazzetta, Sky and others), Mattia De Sciglio is preferred over everyone else in this role and will play with Montolivo, Bertolacci and Bonaventura in midfield.

Alex is also unavailable so Cristian Zapata will play alongside Alessio Romagnoli. Luiz Adriano once again is preferred over Mario Balotelli and Jeremy Menez and will play alongside Carlos Bacca.

Abate-Zapata-Romagnoli-Antonelli
—Kucha-Montolivo-Bonaventura
———-Boateng/Menez
——–Bacca-Andriano/balotelli

I am actually quite interested to see Mattia as RM, because he has been better at triving forward than defending lately. He could totally fail as wide midefielder but it MIGHT work for us. For me personally it is better option than seeing Boateng or Poli in there.
Calabria might also be good option, because he is more of a raw talent.

Somebody said in another article comment that it would be better to put Antonelli in midefield. I disagree, cause you can’t take Antonelli out of our defense, he really is our best defender.

instead of playing our players out of defence, why not just try another formation, a standard team has more dan one formation in case things don’t work out

We don”t need Honda any more and De Siglio is much younger and more promising player than Honda, but we as Milan must fight to sign Tottenham target”s Witsel and young Anvar El Ghazi from Ajax!

Except de sciglio is not a right winger, and neither is honda for that matter.

dont sign non-Italian player and milan will be an all italian squad. even if a bench player is non-italian than it is not a italian squad as simple as that.
