Bonaventura best days are behind him and his contract will not be renewed. So I don’t get why Pioli is insisting on playing him ahead of Leao who is more athletic and younger.

Leao offers more in the final third and he can run at defenders which helps to pull our opponents defense out of shape. This will create more space for Paquetá and Rebić to get a clear shot at goal.

If this lineup is true then this game could end up being a boring draw.

Fair point. We’ll need a wide rotation in the tight schedule ahead, and Jack has one or two moves in him, but Leao is rested and in better form. He still needs to improve significantly when we don’t have the ball though

Agreed. However, Leao will improve with more game time. Same for Paquetá. Pioli needs to start trusting them more instead of relying heavy on players like Ibra and Bonaventura who are not a part of Milan’s future plans. Next season will start relatively soon due to COVID-19 so it will be a short break and therefore we must think ahead and use the players more that be here next season. I get the need to rotate players since we play every 3 days but I also get the impression that Pioli has no faith in Leao and Paquaetá. Bennacer, Kessie,… Read more »

Pirlo is over! he is over 30! he is injured for 2 season. he lost it. yeah we should sell him. let him go.

Keeping pirlo would have cost us 3m a year. keeping Bonna cost even less. even if there is 30 percent chance that he will find his form again (I actually believe he will bounce back), we should keep him. there is no harm. give him a two year contract worth of 3m. worst case scenario, he will be a good influential back up.

Apples and Oranges.
 
Pirlo relied on his head, Bona is a smart player, but his biggest asset was his good dribbling and speed.
 
I share the thought that Milan should get him an extension, but we don’t know, he is close to retire, his career was a disgraceful one, played for the worst Milan and Italy imaginable.
 
I remember when he got signed, I was really? An Atalanta man? Galliani said he was going to be our next star, he was. Is just that the rest of the squad was garbage.
