Pioli prepares for Charles to switch roles up front

Browse By

AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli is set to reinvent Charles de Getelare‘s role as a centre-forward in the second half of the season.

Milan are struggling up front with a recurring injury to Divock Origi, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic is recovering. Expected to return at the end of January and Olivier Giroud. Who reached the 2022 World Cup finals, could miss the first game of the new year. In the second half of the 2022-23 season, Pioli will need more options in the center forward position. 

Therefore, de Getelare may be brought in to play this role. Like he had played before at ufabet Club Brugge after trying to play as a No. 10 attacking midfielder. But still unable to exert a good form.

Expectations were high for De Getelare from Milan fans after the club paid a whopping €35 million to buy him last summer. It is a long-term contract until 2027, but the 21-year-old attacker has yet to fumble. And just had only one assist from playing 18 games, including all items.

Milan will, as said, face Salernitana on January 4 and it’s very likely. That we could see De Ketelaere up front in that game. The Belgian needs to bounce back from a tough first half of the season and bagging a goal would be a great start.
