Saelemaekers passing like he was playing for Lazio.

He was poor last night and couldn't even make simple passes. He has been great though and hopefully just an off game.

He really needs more discprine.
I hope he learns from the dumb mistakes from yesterday, he looked tired from the moment he entered the pitch, I want the same performance from him as last time against merda every match.

Saelamakers is such a likeable guy. His addition to the team boosted the team spirit and his contributions on the pitch are also underrated. Well done alexis, keep improving

Since day 1

Which is surprising since a lot of Anderlecht fans commented that he's good, has lots of potential, but is a big problem in terms of personality and being a diva. He seems like the exact opposite.

Even his ex youth coaches say he is one of the most unmanageable players in the world. They are also surprised at his succes.
When he played at Anderlecht or youth Belgium, he would start at RW and go to almost every position in the field possible. And he stopped complaining now at Milan. He listens more to the coach and players, thats the key on his succeeding here. His ability to keep on running is a big plus, if he didnt have that, he would have flopped hard.

Yeah, he's grown into the squad really well. Even since his first few sub appearances, he kept his head down and did what he needed to. No complaining, no attitude that he was on the bench. And, he gets on very well with the squad as people have said.

A player every coach wished he had. If he can improve his finishing he will be great

No, he certainly needs to improve his finishing and be more decisive in front of goal. Would add a new dimension to our game.

The Rossoneri winger Alexis Saelemaekers spoke to the Milan TV microphones of Pioli's team: "We have an even stronger group than last year because we added strong players like Giroud, Maignan, Ballo-Toure and others. I think we are stronger. compared to last season and we have to show even more because the other teams are stronger too. We need to work a lot even during the friendlies. "

I like how he man-marked Damsgaard almost everytime Sampdoria had the ball possession. It limits their offensive tactics very much. underrated stamina.
