AC Milan coach Pioli seeking 'versatility' from Rafael Leao

AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli is happy with his attacking players now finding form.

Krzysztof Piatek broke his goal drought this week and is expected to start today against Sassuolo, especially as Pioli has said Rafael Leao is not a centre-forward.

“Leao was signed for two reasons, firstly his enormous potential, but also Milan started this season with two strikers in their tactical set-up," said Pioli.

"He is a forward who relies on movement and could even be a centre-forward with his characteristics, but he's working to improve his versatility."
