Rafael Leao is considered one of the most important football players in Milan and the club has renewed the contract with the Portuguese until 2028, where he receives a hefty salary.

This season, in 10 games between the championship and the Champions League, the 24-year-old has scored three goals and provided four assists.

However, for the former coach of Milan, Arrigo Sacchin, Leao should not be in the starting 11.

Sacchi says that if it were up to him, then he would bench the Portuguese.

“For me, Milan is the strongest team this season and as for the title, everything depends on them. Now they have to play in a group because that’s the only way they can put the opponent in difficulty”.

“Leao? In my team, he would not be a starter, he lacks the character that a player should have from the beginning because later on it is difficult to win”, said Sacchi.
