I don't post a lot so I find it necessary to say:

Gattuso needs to put him to play behind 2 strikers.

He’s fine where he plays. It’s the perfect position for him. He needs to see plenty of the ball, and side midfield is just right.

Bona over hakan for LW no doubt, but hopefully we’ll have bought a great winger by then

Trying to find a spot for Bonaventura is a poor mentality for a team with high ambition. Jack needs to fight for his place, Paqueta is definitely a better midfielder than he is and hopefully we sign a player who is clearly a better winger. If he still plays after that, its because he earned it.

Bona is obviously Paqueta’s backup. It’s just the right level of players as starter and backup for Milan 2019/20.

why? bona is a good player though. bona can replace hakan clearly.

Bonaventura is a midfielder who has an excellent understanding of space and timing of runs. He's not as technically good or even as defensively good a hustler as Paqueta. But he can be a great backup (not to mention a loyal club man).

He can be a backup to the left wing forward too, but I'd imagine we'll sign another left wing forward in the summer to replace or backup Hakan. Bona is definitely not a starting left wing forward.

yea agreed. that's what I meant anyway. bona is a better player than hakan as LW. he will be a good back up next season provided we get a quality LW.

No, he's not a better player than Hakan at LW. He doesn't have a lot of the skillset needed to perform that role.

impressed. This guy is unpredictable. sometimes he is just unstoppable when he is in form. On other occasions he is laughably poor. Hopefully he sustains this form.

What skillset does Hakan have for a LW role that Bona doesn't?

Please note, skillset that one supposedly has but rarely shows shouldn't be counted as a skillset.

Passing skillset? Jack is more of a goal threat but he holds the ball too long, way longer than Hakan or Suso.

He is exceptionally consistent for how long he's been in the team. Good signing.

"Paqueta has solved the problem of transitions with his technical skill" - Maldini.

Can't put it better than that.

hakan is direct player while bona is a ball to feet kind of player.
bona is not going to do well in game with open spaces. when in tight situations in midfield, he used to be good with his dribbling but now he seems to have lost that.
hakan has better vision and his passing is quick.
near the box, i will never trust bona to do the right thing.
inside the box however bona has grown a lot last three seasons.
hakan is clearly superior in defensive phase. his slide tackles are amazing.
