Pioli reportedly considers starting Rebić on the left wing against Lecce with Suso and one of Piątek and Leão

Ante Rebić could play from the start on Sunday, but one of Krzysztof Piątek and Rafael Leão would then be dropped.

Stefano Pioli’s first game in charge is this Sunday at Stadio San Siro as his Milan take on Lecce (20:45 CEST).

As reported by Sky Italia, the former Inter and Fiorentina coach is thinking of starting Ante Rebić on the left-wing of his 4-3-3 against the side of Fabio Liverani.

Over the last few games, Rafael Leão occupied this role with relatively great success, as he was arguably the best Milan player even in their losses. With Rebić playing on the left, Pioli would have to choose between Krzysztof Piątek and Leão for the lone striker position.

Suso seems to be a lock for the right-winger position, even if he’s been having a disappointing season by his standards. Pioli has a few more training sessions to figure out his line-up.

Suso??????? What’s with managers and the love for suso. He crosses 100 times and 5 of them actually get an assist. He’s a turtle.

Leao piatek rebic. Enough said

Agreed. I don’t get why the obsession with Suso. It’s not like he’s Messi or Ronaldo. He’s not even on dybala’s level. Another short sighted decision by Pioli if true. Smh

Exactly, this isn’t hard, if piatek must play, leao and rebic must flank him in either a 433 or 4231. Their speed and skill will pull the defense out of shape, hence more chances for piatek. If piatek is benched, then play a 4231 and have rebic as the cf. have paqueta under the forwards and have either bonna/castellejo/suso on the wing with leao. These are our best options.

i know why… because the management want suso price still stabil or getting up so he can be sold for january or next seasons… we talk about gazidis, he good for produce money… its gambling, but i think this is the only reasons…

Suso needs to play so his price tag doesn’t drop or else he won’t be sold

The Milan management believe when the keep playing him he will discover his form back or probably his value will not depreciate.

I want to believe that we have all realised that Leao is an upgrade to Cutrone and Piatek.

El92-Balotelli-Niang and we thought we had pur trident for the next 10 years.

Calm down mate, let’s wait, Bacca came as one of the best strikers in the world and we totally killed his career.

@’Raven, I am not calling Leao Milan’s yet. Besides, none of the players you mentioned is above average in quality excluding Mario and maybe just maybe El92. Talk about Leao if well managed is the next big thing in football. That I am so sure of.

Since Pirlo was gone Milan has no game, so we could have Suarez, Ronaldo or any other. top striker, the end result would be the same.

Well we milan fans know the players better then the coaches. This will be a poor seasson, so dont expect much. Once again the problem is not playing the best players.. Why is Leao on the bench and Piatek starting? Why? Why is Suso playing when he has been terrible since last april….. I just dnt get it, dont expect much goals with lord piatek as main straiker. Leao reminds me of a young ronaldo, the potential is there to be one of the best. The kid must play, he can destroy any deffence by himself. I am glad chanalogulu… Read more »

The great ‘undroppable’ Suso. I am not sure how many coaches we are going to go through the revolving door at Milano before we get one who sees constructing a team around this guy, or presuming him unable to be dropped, is sheer folly. A more overrated Milan player I can scarcely remember. If we offer this guy a new contract on increased wages and talk about building the team around him, when we’ll get back to proper contention? Well, the thought of both fills me with dread.
