Jose Sosa has confirmed his availability to play in any midfield role Montella needs him in after being tried out in a deeper position in the Bournemouth win.

Gustavo Gomez and Matias Fernandez are on international duty but all the other new signings played from the start for Milan in the 2-1 win over Bournemouth.

The €7.5m signing from Besiktas Jose Sosa was given a central midfield role that is usually played by Riccardo Montolivo. While the defensive work was a bit lacking and the backline wasn’t protected enough, Sosa impressed with his passing and his vision and completed his first 90 minutes in red and black colors.

“I am happy, as it’s an honor to play for Milan,” Sosa told MilanTV at the end of the game. “My role? I spoke to the Coach during the week about my position and we tested out a deeper role. I am at the disposal of the Coach and can play in any position of the midfield. We’ll see over the season.

“This is a different experience compared to the one with Napoli. I feel in good shape now and am satisfied with the performance. I am training to be at the top of my form.”

i actually think Sosa did really well! or maybe it’s just that i saw a line up without Montolivo and automatically assumed he did well…nonetheless he commanded that midfield well in his area and didn’t at all looked scared…unlike some people we know who usually play in his position!

Comment: Sosa great job may d coach may try dis out in our next game keep developing

alayo

You mean Montofloppo?

I like his play yesterday but would still move him abit further alongside Kucka/Pasalic with Montolivo infront of defence. Mati should also be important.

Nino

Pasalic, Sosa and Kucka is better. From time to time, Sosa can drive forward, while Kucka drops back to covers him. With our front 3 of Suso, Niang and Bacca with Pasalic pushing up with Sosa… Come on!

I read that Sosa has good assist rate in his previous seasons and for that I feel we need him closer to our strikers, as even though he might do well in a deeper role, one of his important qualities be limited there.Come on.

Great game Sosa… and keep improving in that position… and kick Monto shit out of our starting XI

Nino

Next game against Udinese, with Kucka and Niang suspended, the midfield might be: Pasalic, Monto and Sosa, while the front 3 could be: Suso, Bona and Bacca.
