Exclusive: Montella pondering tactical changes for AC Milan

08 November at 11:50
A new AC Milan could be born in Reggio Emilia against Sassuolo. Montella is aware that many new signings are struggling to adapt to life at the San Siro. Andre Silva has yet to score his first goal in Serie A and Kalinic is also struggling to find the net of the goal with some consistency. The Croat, however, is the rossoneri regular starter despite a difficult start to the season.

The likes of Ricardo Rodriguez and Calhanoglu could be the next players to be snubbed from the starting XI, according to our pundit Andrea Distaso.

The Swiss defender has had a good start to the season but struggled to adapt to life when he was moved in a three-man defence. Fabio Borini has proved to be a more reliable option on the left wing and after his injury against Sassuolo, Rodriguez may skip the upcoming Napoli clash.

Jack Bonaventura is ready to return to action and is expected to replace Clahanoglu who failed to impress against Sassuolo. Riccardo Montolivo is challenging Lucas Biglia to start alongside Franck Kessié in the middle of the park and at the back Christian Zapata may start in place of Mateo Musacchio. A new AC Milan side is thriving, an AC Milan side that is pretty similar to the old one.
