Milan boss delivers brutal response to struggling Chukwueze


Milan boss Stefano Pioli has urged Super Eagles winger Samuel Chukwueze to be more like USMNT star Christian Pulisic amid his goal drought, has sourced.

Speaking at a press conference on Saturday ahead of their Serie A clash against Atalanta on Sunday, the Italian revealed some rather harsh words for struggling winger Samuel Chukwueze. He compared him to the USMNT star, who has eight goals and even assists in all competitions this season, revealing that he believes they share similar characteristics.

“Pulisic and Chukwueze have the same characteristics,” Pioli said at a press conference. “Pulisic scores goals, assists and works. Chukwueze has to score goals, he has to get assists and has to work.”

Chukwueze had started just 10 games for the Rossoneri in 2024, managing two goals and one assist during that span. He net 12 goals in La Liga for Villareal last season, and Milan forked over $22m for him over the summer, with a proper return from the Nigeria international yet to arrive.

Pulisic, meanwhile, recently net a goal and an assist for Milan in a 4-2 loss to Monza. Even in disappointing team showings, he has been a bright spot for the Rossoneri.
