What was said about Ademola Lookman?

“Lookman played perhaps the best game of the season and also one of the best considering last year,” Piero Gasperini said, as per Calciomercato.

“He had many dangerous situations, and I see him growing, but I don’t know if he can repeat last year’s goals. Lookman is important. If we always scored goals in the first half, little or nothing would be missing.”

Also, Gasperini, pointed out the need for some players Scamacca, Holm and De Ketelaere to enhance and improve on their skills.

“We were able to suffer in the second half; some players like Scamacca, Holm, and De Ketelaere need to grow in pace and mentality,” he added.

In another story, Super Eagles legend, Taribo West, has joined Jay Jay Okocha in saying that AC Milan’s Samuel Chukwueze can still come good in the Italian league.

“We will see the best of Chukwueze in Milan.”

The Olympics gold medalist added, “I believe it is the best for him because Milan is a club that will give him the atmosphere and grounds to bring out his best abilities. They have the structures to take a player to a different level… especially for a young player who really wants to make it.”
