Conti has the higher ceiling though, and he deserves to keep getting games. It takes time to become the player he once was
Stop. RicRod can only turn one way and pass with one foot. He struggles to control the ball and has fallen over multiple times gifting the opposition chances. He needs ample space to make a forward pass. He may be able to play a pretty pass in training but as soon as he is crowded he is negated.

Theo uses physical abilities more than technique per se but he is much calmer under pressure and can get out of trouble and has shown the ability to shoot with both feet.

so glad pioli had the sack to trust conti for several games now. he has been the biggest improver in our entire team over the past few games and has looked fantastic. if he continues at this level I would have no problem seeing an eventual back 4 of:

---Theo-----Roma-----Calda-----Conti---


- plus we'd have solid backups in Duarte, Musacchio, Calabria, and either RR or RR's inevitable replacement

Genuinely surprised and happy at how he's been playing.
2 things have really worked: a coach who is actually good at helping players improve and for the first time in his Milan career he's been injury free for an extended stretch....maybe he'll even improve further.

Good work Conti.

Not the first time that injuries destroy players career. I hope Conti find continuity and joy playing football again .

This one really hurts tbh...
I watched some of his interviews on the Milan youtube channel about a year back.

He's a genuinely nice guy who didn't deserve his rotten luck with injuries. He tried his best to contribute positively in the locker room even when sitting out - its clear his teammates respected him like crazy too.

Good luck Andrea...see you soon. Hope you find success.

Ye

Honestly he should have been given more chances to prove himself.

Honestly dont think Dalot is much better than him and definitely for the amount that he would cost.

Too bad all the injuries occurred, was such a great prospect before. I think we sold too early IMO. Seemed like he was starting to find his way again this year. I don't think it was worth the 7m sell but it's not an awful deal either. Best of luck Andrea, I hope you are able to stay healthy and turn your career back around!

With all his injuries, it would have been hard for him to get minutes with our current team. Player coming from injury needs time to adapt and this season the competition for RB is too much for him. We have solid Calabria and fresh and talented Dalot as starter and deputy respectively. Kalalu completes the department as alternative.
