    So ypu include Jungdal and Desplanches (4th and 5th GK’s) but not Pellegri (3rd Striker). Pioli is not bright..

    @Zoro

    Jungdal and Desplanches are included because Milan has to fulfill a quota of homegrown players for the UEFA list, and another quota of “country grown players”

    If a team doesn’t match that, then first-team players need to be skipped (in this case, Pellegri)
    Hope that clears it
