I like him as a fourth choice centreback: experienced, low wages, less brainfreezes than in the old days, but hope Rino doesn't see him as his actual first choice central defence pairing with Ale. That would be bad.

Should be Ale first on the team sheet with Caldara, Musacchio first sub, Zapata after that. Always.

Not a big fan of Musa, but Zapata horror shows are easily forgotten it seems.

Especially since Zapata hasn't played in ages, his match sharpness could be pretty shit.

I think we all know Zapata pretty well at this stage being our joint second longest-serving player: impressive physical attributes, strong stopper, good in the air, occasional brainfreezes which have improved of late, and not that impressive with passing - definitely not a ball-playing defender.

Musacchio has some ball-playing skills. He messed up a bit during the Napoli game, but then again he wasn't used much at all last season especially after the 3 man defence was abandoned. I think he should be given an opportunity behind Caldara to impress. After all, Rino wants to build from the back so these type of defenders are essential. Imagine Zapata trying to play it out from the back!

I guess we'll see Rino's actual preference when Zapata is back from injury.

Quote:
“I am dead tired [laughs], but I am happy for helping my team,”Zapata told MilanTV after the 3-1 win.“I always work to help my teammates and to get some playing time as it happened today. I always make myself available to the coach.

“Experience is always needed and I want to play a great campaign with these teammates. The derby [which will take place on October 21st at San Siro]? How can I forget that goal [the 2-2 equalizer in April 2017]! We have a few days more to prepare for this game but I am already thrilled.”

Speaking in the mixed-zone, the 32-year-old Colombian added:“I hope to be decisive again in the derby. We have to work in these days and wait for the national team players. There is motivation for this match. The defense [Zapata and Kessiť made the mistake which led to Chievo’s goal]? It’s annoying to concede goals, we have to improve in this and take a step forward in every game.”
At fault for the goal but still nice to have a 4th choice with his experience. Doesn't complain about being on the bench either. Renewal pls for 1 year at 1-1.5m/year.

Fixed.

He's no better than Mussacchio. Always out of position. Same pure shit than Mussacchio. If it wasn't for Ale, we'd be taking 3 goals a game.

I think he was played because of his distribution from the back, more important now when we don't have any regista.

it was a family affair, cousins...stay out of it!

i think him and Mussachio are just stylistically different. one is not miles ahead of the other.

however his attibutes are more needed now than Musacchio's. and i'm talking "physicality"

after the inter game, i realized we have 9 out of 10 outfield starters are all "finnesse" players.
Only Kessie can Hold his own when the game gets nasty and physical.

and Udinese was quite physical as well. if we had started this game with our regular starters, i'm convinced we would have lost this game...WE ARE TOO SOFT!!!

so Zapata and Bakayoko were good insertions for this game.

and that should be taken in consideration for the winter mercato.
Bring at least 1 Physical/energetic player in the middle.
with more "finesse" players, we'll struggle
