With Davide Calabria and Alessandro Florenzi returning only in 2023, the race opens at the Rossoneri home to who will be the right-back on which Stefano Pioli will aim from now to mid-November when there will be a break for the World Cup in Qatar. Stefano Pioli is evaluating the various alternatives, starting from the fact that the ideal replacement would be Sergino Dest.
FIRST TO BE OWNER – As reported this morning by La Gazzetta dello Sport, tomorrow night in the Champions League against ol Chelsea it will be the American who will take the field from the first minute as right-back: for the player who arrived on loan from Barcelona in the summer, this is his first as a starter with the Milan shirt. It is a great chance for Dest who wants to make people forget the bad performance against Napoli as soon as possible.
PLAN B – But the American is not the only option that Pioli is considering for the right wing: plan B would in fact be to move Pierre Kalulu to the outside and place another central player alongside Tomori. With Kjaer injured too, the options are represented by Matteo Gabbia and Malik Thiaw, with the latter, however, who could only be deployed in the league since he is not on the UEFA list. From here to the break, the game will be played practically every three days and therefore it is right that Pioli evaluates more than one solution.
