AC Milan

Why Brahim Diaz is expected to start over De Ketelaere vs. Udinese


Charles De Ketelaere is not expected to start in AC Milan’s first league game of the season on Saturday against Udinese, a report claims.

De Ketelaere is without a doubt the big signing of the summer for Milan so far as he arrived in a deal from Club Brugge widely reported to be worth €32m plus bonuses, but he will have to remain patient while waiting to fully enter the mechanisms of Stefano Pioli.

According to Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Brahim Diaz is currently expected to start ahead of the 21-year-old Belgian in the role of attacking midfielder in the game against Udinese at San Siro to kick-off the new Serie A season.

The reasons for this are likely because the Spaniard has more knowledge and familiarity with Pioli’s intricate tactical schemes and important components such as the pressing system, with CDK requiring a bit more time before he is fully up to speed, it seems.
