A thought has occurred, abate is really shit at crossing and very predictable and one-dimensional when attacking, why not put him at left back where he would only have to defend and not cross because he's a good defender and sometimes could cut inside. that way de scilgio can play right back which is his preferred side?

Should be sold with the first offer.

I love his heart and he is a true Milanista and dont want to say anything ugly unlike to Muntari, Boateng, MAtri etc.

But Abate is really on level WAY BELOW Milan. There is no place for him in a serious team. He cannot pass or play under pressing. Milan looses to much coz of it. Milan needs a technical fullback for modern and fast football.

Abate shouold be sold, and should have been sold when we could.

he can not cross, he gets in such good position with his pace, but just can not cross, can not pass the ball, lost it so many times due to dumb passes.

As much as I defend Abate and appreciate his work, I would not mind selling him and LB bringing in a LB like Criscito, Ghoulam or Lulic. The main reason for this would be De Sciglio's development - I think he is far better at RB. Plus our team would be stronger over all.
I think that an Abate-Criscito swap is possible actually, since Zenit wanted Abate for a while, Criscito is on his way out and their values are similar.

hate to break it to everyone, but we arent exactly in the golden age of fullbacks right now.


Abate is one of the better ones in the world. And his crossing isnt that bad, a ball doesnt need to end up on an attacker's forehead to be a good cross, he puts a lot of balls into the danger area, our attackers are not that good at attacking the ball in the air.


He is fine

Abate (and De Sciglio) are quality, relatively. The problem is when one is out, who then gets to play. Milan should sign a quality leftback, or one with such potential, without letting Abate go.

Why leftback? We have 3 solid leftback... and one stupid rightback ABATE. I want see all this players ConstantLWB, DesciglioRWB and Emanuelson play like wingback no fullback with 3CB ;) Abate can try CB or Serie B...

Abate: "There aren't any excuses or justifications for our performances. We're in a difficult moment."

Abate: "All the players are behind Allegri. He's a great person and coach."

Abate: "The fans are right to protest against us. We're not doing much, and we're struggling as a team."

Abate: "We're struggling against all the teams we face. We have to be more like a provincial side and fight for every ball."

Sell him, he is just too stupid to play football, he should start with athletics, but even there you must know, when to start running and where is finish line.

The most stupid player in history.

Because, he was/ is a freaking open door. Quite frankly of all the matches that I have seen him play, his best game may have been the one he played against Penarol. Now if you think about that he was benched for Brazil U20s and in the olympics (could not beat the ManU guy); it tells you how much of a liability he really is.
