Bonucci and not only: Milan restarts from the untouchables

After taking reins at AC Milan, new coach Gennaro Gattuso is identifying the elements to rely on for the new course.

It is obvious that Gennaro Gattuso, to start on the right foot his experience as a coach of AC Milan’s first team, must rely on those players who guarantee character, experience and quality to team play.

As Il Corriere dello Sport reports today, the Milan of the new Calabrian technician will restart from the so-called untouchables, or a small group of elements inside the team that should be the backbone of the starting lineup. It all starts from Gianluigi Donnarumma, who has been undisputed for more than two years, although he is still very young, the 18 years old is a pillar of this team.

In defense Leonardo Bonucci and Alessio Romagnoli should represent the ideal duo, a mix of experience and youth able to integrate very well with each other, also considering the feeling that comes from the Italian national team. In midfield Gattuso will count a lot on Franck Kessie, the defensive midfielder who resembles a lot with the old Rino when he was an unstoppable number 8. Even Gattuso has admitted that the Ivorian could become even superior in quality and strength.


Finally, the attack, with the striker rebus still to be deciphered, Gattuso already knows he can count on Jesus Suso, a determining factor for AC Milan’s offensive fate. It is no coincidence that the Spaniard is the best goalscorer among the rossoneri in the league, with 5 goals and many decisive assists.
