AC Milan

CM: Origi ready for a double role and his first derby


AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli wanted more options from his attacking department and Divock Origi helps in more ways than one.

Calciomercato.com report that Origi took only a few minutes to impress everyone in his debut with Milan in the 4-2 victory against Udinese on Saturday. Having entered in the place of Leao, he moved well and looked sharp from the off.

Initially he will battle for a spot as the starting striker with Olivier Giroud while waiting for Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s return, but he could also become Leao’s substitute when the Portuguese is not there and if Ante Rebic suffers a dip in form.

Therefore, he has a double role that gives Pioli options and the former Liverpool is determined to do well in a new environment. There is a derby match against Inter on the horizon too on 3 September, and given his 6 goals against Everton he will be very much looking forward to a clash against a city rival.
