The President is not doing well. Mind you, Barcelona is a beautiful city and Barcelona a historic club, the salary is then 6.5 million per season. Put like this doesn’t seem too bad, but for a footballer in the end the field counts; and the field says only 4 appearances as a starter under the guidance of Xavi, two in the league and two in the Champions League, 12 total appearances and 1 goal against Viktoria Plzen. These days, last year, Kessié was an immovable column of the Milan midfield who would later become Italian championsand around (or rather, next to) him revolved Bennacer and Tonali, the owners of the current team after the Ivorian’s farewell in the summer on a free transfer.
DOUBLE ERROR – And there is not even the possibility of challenging another competitor to save himself, as atInheritance. Not only that, in fact, Kessié has reduced its importance in the new realitywhich reserves him less time and a role as deputy of the owners Busquets, Pedri and Gavi; his former team, Milan, is traveling at a remarkable pace again this year, but in fact it has not completely replaced him. They have arrived Pobegaa mezzala who showed the best things when Pioli moved to 4-3-3 due to staff requirements, and Vranckx, used with a dropper and not even included in the Champions list. Therefore Franck has narrowed both his personal horizon and that of Milan’s midfield in one fell swoopand it is not even said that his benefits palmarès.
ISMA AND SANDRO, SANDRO AND ISMA – Milan always relies on the two of them, when they are at 100%: Bennacer is the brain, Tonali is the engine, the two they have learned to make up for Kessié’s absence and to substitute his phosphorus and his dynamism collaborating and covering large portions of the field, as masterfully done in Zagreb on the occasion of the Champions League victory. Will they be able to keep up the pace in a crazy season, spoiled by an anomalous World Cup in winter? The good thing is that neither of them, one Algerian and the other Italian, will be involved in Qatar. Pioli will then have to capitalize on this advantage over other big players to keep the voltage of his midfield tandem high.
