we need to be in desperately mode like Milan when their first team player is garbage and they didnt have much choice. Cutrone would end up like Pinamonti if they had Great striker like Icardi, Donnaruma probably will only eating the bench at most if they had great goalkeeping like Handa. Calabria hit jackpot with Conti and Abate long injured. Now even if we didnt buy anyone its pretty much our starting eleven got covered well except maybe for Fullback position which I believe Valietti had more chances to make it than any other primavera.
Not true actually . Thy do believe and give chances to youngsters more than us.
Miha benched Storari or Abiati i can't reall to play Donarumma.
Calabria benched Abatte
Locatelli benched Montolivo
Cutrone benched Kalinic/Silva (60M players)
Now its true that Abate, Montolivo or Kalinic are not world beaters but neither are Dambrosio/Santon/Naga , Vecino/Borja or Eder and yet we keep playing them instead of youngsters.
When we had no defenders we played Santon as a CB instead of using a primavera (ok vanheusden was injured but still our primavera managed to produce a top talent like Bettela) .
When Karamoah was clearly showing potential and ability we refused to give him minutes and played Eder in every possible position.
When Icardi got injured we never used Pinamonti except a coppa italia match vs pordenone , and even there he was the one to get replaced in half time like all the fault was his for our shitty performance.
And i can go long on this.
There are managers/clubs that trust youngsters and ones who don't. Spalletti has always been the latter. From what i can remember Benitez and De Boer were the only coaches we have had recently who trusted youngsters despite the club philosophy.
Rafa used to play in CL with an attack composed by Coutinho , Eto and Biabiany while De Boer benched Kondogbia to play Gnoukuri.
