would like to see him take a role like Poli last year if possible.


You know, started 18, sub 8 times. Basically wasn't full fledged starter ala montolivo but got opportunities, and if he played well would get to continue playing.

Unsure if he's ready for it but it's getting close.


What would really benefit poli and cristante is 1 high quality mid to eleviate pressure

Can be the best talent we produced in a long time. In italy, especially coaches, they dont have as much faith in young midfielders. Cristante is more talented than DES, but being a holding midfielder takes much more responsibility. Its easier for defenders to brake trough in first team.

Hope cristante gets playing time, atleast as mezzala, he needs it now.

WTF are you talking about? Defenders do not break into the first team in Italy especially not in serie A. It is rare for a defender to play consistently in Italy whether it is as CB or RB/LB.

With that being said, Cristante has a great future ahead of him same as DeSciglio. Do not forget #2.

I should add Fullbacks in particular, but I stand corrected, a young midfielder has it harder in italy.

Nobody has it harder than a CB. Playing CB in Italy is the hardest thing. There are always rarities like Maldini or Nesta.

He was getting playing time with Allegri, but lost space when we changed coach and tactics. IIRC he started some games at Poli's role shortly before Seedorf stepped in.

For this season, even though I see De Jong as the likely 1st choice for anchor, until Montolivo returns Cristante is probably 2nd in line. I wouldn't be surprised if we see him starting often in this position, assuming Milan don't sign anyone for that role.

But I agree a more advanced role would suit him better for now.

I would love to see Montolivo-DeJong-Cristante as a matter of fact. 5 straight games with that midfield and I'm positive Cristante's level will swiftly increase.

He did well in the friendly but he is not first 11 quality yet. atleast in a competitive team.

If our team had more talent in it, It would of hyper accelerated his growth.


Because we are so low on quality players here stagnate.

Kaka and Silva were great examples of being surrounded by quality.

To put a CB in a coach needs big balls and also to able to teach fast the most important aspects of the position. For coach that is not considered good at defense, Zeman has put in the first team both Nesta and Marquinhos. That guy has big balls when it comes to playing young players that don't mind running for the full 90 min. I wonder how he'll do at Cagliari this year especially now that they sold Astori.

I only want to mention to you that he showed his talent in competitive leaque as serie a, no ffriendly match. Milan is building with new team and i suppose that we should count his talent. He isnt bad but around him we only have average experiend teammate as zaccacrdo, bonera... we need experience player but they have to quality. From succes of germany club to netherland team, germany team...we have to count youngers player. Milan finished last season in 8 position it isnt not mistake from young player. I believe with sciglio, cristante& elshar, balo, alex, menez and add on some experience quality player we can fight for 3 position

Ok thats fine. Fyi I watched those games, he was good in the offensive faze but was struglling defensively. He'll get his chance but he is not ready to be a first 11 player just yet.

Hahaha,you're definitely not alone on this,many people said this a couple of years ago("Cristante is like a young redondo minus the hair")but to be honest he's more in the mould of the guy in your avatar..both are very good with the long passess, can score spectacular long range goals and very capable freekick takers(in case of Albertini he's a world class freekick taker on par with Pirlo imo)

He'll do well in a couple seasons and get sold if this management keeps at it
