Former Milan and Fiorentina goalkeeper Giovanni Galli suggests Stefano Pioli should take a gamble and start 15-year-old Francesco Camarda instead of Luka Jovic.

The two teams face off in Serie A this weekend and the Rossoneri are forced into numerous changes.

Olivier Giroud begins a two-match ban, while Rafael Leao is a major doubt with a thigh injury too, so Jovic is expected to start upfront against his old club.

This idea is not greeted with enthusiasm, so Galli suggests Pioli go all out and shock Fiorentina with a bold choice.

“Jovic proved he had everything it takes to be a great player and when he arrived in Serie A, I thought he had to rediscover his hunger,” Galli told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Now I couldn’t even tell you if this is a psychological or physical issue, but he looks like a completely different player to the one who was so admired in Germany. We’ve seen nothing at all of that striker.

“If the situation does not change, then you may as well just let Camarda play. It could be an opportunity to throw him into the mix without much responsibility on his shoulders. It’s just not possible that behind Giroud there’s a chasm.”

Camarda only turned 15 in March, but has been a sensation for the Milan Primavera youth team with seven goals and two assists in 13 games this season.

That includes three goals and an assist in just three UEFA Youth League fixtures.

He has already jumped up a level and is already playing for the Under-17 Italy squad, netting four times in six caps.
