"He can play, although now I have many possibilities and players who are doing well. He has shown that he's well, as well as Leao and Ibra. It all depends on the attitude, I have to choose the team that gives more guarantees," he began.

Pioli was also asked about the situation of Lucas Paqueta, who has been linked with an exit this month due to the lack of playing time as of late. In his answer, the manager didn't give much away, only assuring that the midfielder is fully committed.
