Give the kid a chance ffs
He’s had chances, almost a seasons worth of them and I don’t want to lose money over his transfer so to me it makes sense to both parties if he goes. Don’t want to kill his career either

What chances? Couple minutes here and there, if he gets to start by some miracle then he doesnt see the field next 2 games. Look at Tonali in his first season, some players need time to adapt.

Hope you're right but to me Tonali had more glimpses of talent than CDK at this point

I am sick so i have no energy to try and make screen shots of yesterday's game except Tomori didn't get back on time and Thiaw didn't mark Bia who scored the equalizer
but what happened yesterday happened against Tottenham, when Leao tried to take the ball from their keeper
Tomori was so close the Tottenham's box 10:46, 2 seconds later Milan lost possession
it ended with Tomori in Milan's box at 10:59 and the ball hit him deflecting into Mike's hands
it was 4 against 4 and then 5 Milan players against 6 Tottenham players
the result at that time meant Milan in the lead and if Tottenham dealt with this any better it would've meant 1-1

Defense is not about a defender but a defensive system
so no matter how good a defender is, he can't stop anything on his own
a midfielder needs to get the ball but it is not the only duty he has, he could get it sure good but he won't do that every time otherwise you don't need defenders
he still can do good without getting the ball, by making it easier for the defender
so if he got beaten, the player with the ball wouldn't be 100% balanced and controlling the ball
it could get a bit further than he wants, he could struggle to stay on his foot
that makes it easier for the defender to get the ball and doesn't mean the midfielder made a mistake
so your attacking players they need to have fewer defenders to beat, or else they beat one or two then the ball is easily taken from them
but how is Leao getting that? nobody is there to distract some of the defenders to open space for Leao for 1 on 1
because Giroud and Diaz are joining the midfield trying to get the ball back, it is then passed to Leao who is alone against 3-4 defenders focusing on him
so fails and keeps on failing until he gives 150% and get past 2-3 players then he can't focus on shooting after all that wasted energy
so fans don't get to notice what he is doing because it doesn't end with a goal or a big chance.

My man has upped his level and attitude in games before just to be benched for 2-3 later on

How you meant to get consistency and confidence this way

With Tonali and Kalulu we didn’t have any alternatives to choose from really

Also with Sandro there was the similar big price tag pressure to play him and develop him fast.. we ended up lowballing his club that’s how bad he was :lol:
