could be our Verratti.

get a CDM Next summer ... with him filling in both LCM (Shared with Paqueta) and CMD depending on the need

We won't get anywhere by replacing players with others that are just 2% better

Who's that kid behind Benny in the photo ^

Oh, and I feel that Bennacer is not ready to start yet. He can be substituted in, but not start ((as of today)).

Let him adapt by coming off the bench for some games, or start him against the minor teams in order to avoid another Fiorentina fiasco.

I think he should replace Biglia immediately. He provides so much direct verticle play from cdm spot and should work really well with the current manager.

Biglia does a lot of side to side useless passing sometimes that slows the tempo of the team.

He just needs to work on being smart defensively and cut out some of those cheap give aways.

Have you missed the last games?
The main problem is no longer goal chance creation. The team is leaking in goals. Kessie and Biglia are the only ones doing a remotely good job at protecting the CBs. The team has conceded 10 goals in the last 5 games.
The last thing we need is another "creaty" player in the midfield.

If I had to take out one of the midfielders from the last game, and put in Bennacer, then it would be Paqueta.

Kessie-Biglia-Bennacer seems pretty balanced, considering their task.

IsmaŽl Bennacer vs Lazio

54 passes
85% pass accuracy
2 key passes
3 dribbles won
4 tackles won
3 interceptions
1 clearance

Good game by Algerian playmaker despite the result. He will very soon become one of the key players for AC Milan. ��⚫️����

This guy's a pretty good example of why I can't stand midget players. Doesn't matter how talented they are, they get rag dolled by physically imposing players.

He won the midfield battle against SMS in the first half.
Bennacer is a kid that needs to play every minute to gain experience.

I don't know what to think of him, he played well, he doesn't shy away from battles but he is meh in terms of stability and I`d agree that his medium frame is partly to blame for that.

Maybe we have to change the dynamic in midfield and defense quite a bit? More classic 4 at the back without big freedoms for Theo and a more attacking role for Bennacer? But doesn't change the fact that we'd lack an anchor, so maybe Biglia + Bennacer?

On Bennacer - Good on the ball and I like his heart - giving it his all. I am only a bit worried by his lack of pace which sees him late to loose balls. He can be competent in a midfield with players that compliment him.

Yeah let's bring up exceptional players to justify midgets.. Cause Bennacer is the second coming of Messi. Ever heard of exceptions to the rule? He gets thrown around like a bitch and offers no support for our defense.

That said, I'm not saying he'll never make it... Just that he's very small and small players tend to fail at the highest level.

Opinions on

Bennacer - Biglia* - Krunic

*until we get someone better

so leaving Paqueta out or for a more attacking role?
