The Dutch increasingly convincing Allegri has lined up as fullback, middle and playmaker. The next season is back to basics: “the engineering”.
Urby Emanuelson can smile, despite everything. Milan is not doing well, the Shield is slipping away, but the Dutchman is a certainty for Max Allegri. Fullback, median playmaker: Emanuelson is where you put it. And with good results: “With respect to Ajax, as a player I feel that something has changed in me. In Rossoneri’m fine. After an initial phase of adaptation is much better.” The future is Milan. While in the field could come back in defense …
The Milan coach admires him and has never hidden. Dall’Ajax arrived in January of 2011, Urby started with the handbrake on: difficulties on and off the field. This was the season of consecration: “The support from my teammates and the entire society – returns ‘Tuttosport’ – was crucial to my growth.”
This year, Emanuelson has played mostly in midfield and also marked a network, against Parma. The next season Allegri could bring it back to ‘base’ though. The Dutch born left-back, in recent games has been deployed in that role. Perhaps it is no coincidence.
