AC Milan manager Stefano Pioli has insisted that Nigerian forward Samuel Chukwueze will get more playing time in the coming weeks.
“I tried to learn as much as possible. There was also Chukwueze, who among other things is the strongest player I've ever played with so far in my career.
“He arrived in Villarreal when I was in the Primavera. We started together, then within a year he climbed the categories and reached the first team.
Chukwueze completed his move from Villarreal to AC Milan during the summer transfer window.
However, he has found it difficult to break into the first team since his arrival with the likes of Leao and Pulisic ahead of him.
Davide continued, “Samuel is a golden boy, always with a smile on his face. It's not easy at Milan, he finds himself in a completely different environment, but I think that as soon as he gets used to the team and Italian football.
“He will be able to reach the top. He has nothing to fear in comparison with Leao”.
