Villas-Boas does not ignite for Milik
“First of all, I’m very glad it’s over now. It’s a position we’ve been looking for since last summer, but we didn’t do well with the arrival of Luis Henrique. We were expecting a player who will bring presence in the area and goals. Dario Benedetto has been going through a tough time for him professionally, so it’s a bit more difficult for him. Milik has not played since November 15 with his country. He will be in the squad for Monaco, but he will not start. We’ll see if we can give him some minutes. The following week for the match against Rennes, we’ll see how he feels ”.
