Milan fans would not mention Hakan Calhanoghlu as an indispensable Milan player. But the 24-year-old has turned out to be a key man for Gennaro Gattuso’s side.
A dynamic player ended the campaign with eight goals in all competitions, but there’s a killer stat that shows just how good he’s been.
In 2018 he has skipped only three games, and Milan lost two of them, to Benevento and Napoli.
The other was a draw with Torino. The provider of 11 assists is a central part of Milan’s plans now, and the kind of player Rino Gattuso simply can’t do without.
