Milan Newcomer Tested in New Role By His National Team

Yunus Musah has played little so far because he joined Milan later relative to other newcomers and due to the level of performance of their midfielders. He has starred in a host of positions at Valencia before transferring to Italy. A recent one could help him and the Rossoneri.

According to ESPN (via Fantacalcio), he was fielded as a deep-lying playmaker in the most recent United States match and looked very at ease. Rade Krunic has been holding down the fort so far. The club rejected a few offers from Fenerbahce because they plot for the Bosnian international to start until Ismael Bennacer is healthy.

At this stage, Musah is the fourth option in the Milan depth chart in the middle of the field. If Stefano Pioli agreed with Gregg Berhalter, the tweak would open up more opportunities for him to be in the XI regularly.

The gaffer suggested Yacine Adli did okay as Krunic’s backup in practice in a recent presser. Before the start of the season, he stated that Tijjani Rejinders could play as a maestro if needed, but that would limit his offensive forays.

Our Take on Musah

He’s young and can still be molded, but the regista role would be more limiting for him than for the former AZ ace considering his dynamism. Moreover, his teammate is a much better ball distributor.
