MILAN – Milan fans already know him well, the others a little less. Let's see who Lorenzo Colombo is.
He is a 2002 center forward , born in Vimercate, who a few hours ago took away the satisfaction of making his debut with Milan in the Coppa Italia semifinal against Juventus.
Yesterday he was thrown into the fray instead of Paqueta because AC Milan is orphaned of center-forward.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic was absent from the field by disqualification, Rebic got kicked out after just 16 minutes of play.
We needed weight up front and for this reason Pioli decided to put on the field a young man who has always scored avalanches of goals before his debut in the first team.
In fact Colombo has reached two finals of the European under-17 championship with goals. His Italy has surrendered in both cases to Holland.
Colombo continued to score goals in Milan's youth sector too.
Some already consider it, exaggerating and not a little, the new Haaland.
The last season was really unfortunate because Colombo suffered several injuries that made him play little or nothing.
In any case, the red and black baby phenomenon still marked the beauty of 9 goals in 6 games of the spring football championship.
Yesterday the greatest joy, the first team debut.
Unfortunately he was unable to touch many balls because Milan was outnumbered and at the mercy of Juventus but he finally trod the professional field.
With many close matches, Pioli could use him as the first or second alternative to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Milan must make turnover to have all the players in an optimal physical condition to compete for the qualification for the next Europa League.
The Champions League area is too far for the Rossoneri with or without Colombo …
