Milan’s Chukwueze to start against Fiorentina


AC Milan are dealing with a crisis in attack as Olivier Giroud and Rafael Leao will miss out on the Fiorentina clash.

As a result, the disappointing Luka Jovic will get a chance to start along with Samuel Chukwueze.Giroud is serving a two-game suspension and Leao is recovering from a hamstring injury, meaning they will both be unavailable on Saturday.

Initially, it seemed Noah Okafor would take the No.9 spot but that won’t be the case.According to Tuttosport, as cited by MilanNews, Pioli will most likely give Jovic the chance from the start instead of Okafor. The latter has been on international duty with Switzerland and will return today, meaning he won’t have much time to prepare.

Not to mention that he started all three games for his country.In addition to Jovic, Chukwueze should also get the chance and he’s another player who needs to step up. He will play on the right flank, which means Christian Pulisic will be on the left instead. The Nigerian has collected just one assist so far and Milan need him to step up now more than ever.The Rossoneri paid €20m plus an additional €8m in bonuses for his services and so far, it has been a disappointing outcome. However, there is still plenty left of the season for Chukwueze to show what he can do.
