The upcoming Serie A match Roma-Milan could present a surprise. Dzeko could sit on the bench. Schick should replace the Bosnian.
The 2017-18 Champions League is momentarily over but the edition 2018-19 is in Di Francesco‘s mind. Roma needs three points at the Stadio Olimpico against Milan to get closer to a spot for the most important international competition for clubs.
In the press conference ahead of Roma-Milan, Di Francesco backed Schick stating that “He is ready to play as well as the other players on the roster“.
The Italian coach mentioned that tomorrow he will decide what to do because he always implements a turnover for the sake of Roma.
“Tomorrow I will choose the starting 11. Schick can be one of the players selected. As I did in the previous 3 games, it can happen in this match as well. Schick has trained with great continuity and can play from the beginning“.
The Czech striker could be the right option against Gattuso‘s crew but only without Edin Dzeko. These two players cannot play together because “We have already tried the duo Schick-Dzeko and we haven’t had positive outcomes” said Di Francesco.
