Anyway i wouldt want to see him out od Milan any time soon, he is a fighter and he will be useful in the years to come
1 bad example doesn't conclude a theory of football.
The contrary of ur example is the greatest ever Wingback
Marcus Cafu who adapted from midfield to Right wingback.

The question is does he want to?

Leo has used him mostly as right midfielder. I'm convinced there is a spot available for Abate in our squad for many years to come.

He has the makings of avery good right back & he can do the switch the switch from midfield to defence just as Zambrotta did years ago.

Abate is also very happy playing at full back.

If you watch the World Club Cup - equivalent of 92, you'll find Barca losing to a San Paolo side featuring Cafu as a right forward (much like Pato's been playing this season).

Abate, owner finally: "And 'my time and I have to exploit it"

Oddo's injury has launched the fast lane of the right wing Rossoneri, and now, Ignazio Abate has no intention of stopping, "I have always tried to do right now is my time and I have to make the most of. Anyway even before I played both feel less confidence Mister ". Words of hope for the permanence of Gattuso in Rossoneri: "I hope to stay because it will give us a big hand. Rino is important for all of the dressing room and will also do well on the field once recovered from injury."
I trust you man, Go Forward.

i love the guys who don't think Abate can play RB... really how many times does this guy get beaten for pace or physically??? not many that I've seen. He was in a fantastic battle with Lavezzi and won almost every one. He came on against marseille when Niang was dominating Oddo and nullified that threat even though Niang is very physically strong.... How many 23 year-olds who have never played RB before can do this???? Yeah, he makes the occasional nervy mistake from time to time, but that will come with more PT. Abate has been great in literally every single game he's played at RB this year and those of you who are selling him short really must not watch Milan games. If we keep playing Abate at RB, he will get more comfortable there, he will start to chop out the silly errors, he will get better at knowing when to attack and defend, and he will grow more composed on the ball. His pace, strength, and mentality are all fantastic, and to be honest his instincts are top notch.... he is always the one who helps pull off a last ditch tackle or comes in to save our CB's asses. The stuff you can't teach and can't really improve at he already has in abundance, which is why I think he'll do quite well here. The improvements he has to make are not massive and he can definitely do that.

They will never sell players unless they are desperate to leave & cannot convince them to stay or if they are sending the club into desperate trouble by being unable to afford them & even then they will sort out what is best for the player & Milan & even try & get round it by trying things to keep them.

Abate fits into neither category.

really well said, I totally agree. He has done a great job so far and I think he will get better in future. Now he will for sure get more playing time, at least as long as Oddo is injured and I think he will have great performances.

I hope you're right because I want Abate to stay with us longer, he is young and plays great, that's what we need, he really is a promise for the future, so I want to have him at Milan.

What if Man City came knocking with 20 mil + offer Abate a 3 mil contract. What would you do if you were Galliani?

i don't like abate at RB because he will never be cafu or serginho. that's who i want as our fullbacks.

i don't care that he's a converted midfielder...the zambrotta precedent doesn't interest me. zambrotta at his best vs. serginho give me serginho everyday of the week.
