AC Milan coach Pioli delighted with Brahim response to positional change

AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli is delighted with the current form of Brahim Diaz.

Brahim, on-loan from Real Madrid, has contributed to four goals in those two starts, scoring three and assisting one.

“Brahim is doing very well, but I chose him there because I wanted to move Calhanoglu to the left, that way we would have more protection and be more solid down that flank," Pioli, who has moved Brahim into a central role, told Milan TV.

“For example, against Benevento we had done very well on the ball, not so much when we lost possession.

"Believe me: that was the most important decision."
