Samuel Chukwueze

AC Milan manager Stefano Pioli explained why he benched Samuel Chukwueze in their match against Juventus on Saturday.

Chukwueze has been performing well for the Rossoneri lately, leading many to expect him to start against the Bianconeri. However, Pioli’s decision to list him among the substitutes came as a surprise to many fans and observers.

Pioli explained that his choice was strategic, noting that he often has to choose between starting Chukwueze or adding an extra midfielder to the lineup, leading to a more balanced team formation.

”I liked Pulisic (vs Juventus) instead. Chukwueze is also fine, but at the moment I won’t give up an extra midfielder to play with 4 attacking players and therefore Chukwueze is the one sacrificed the most at the moment,” Pioli told Milan News.
