Back in OM’s starting XI against Angers, Arkadiusz Milik distinguished himself by scoring a hat-trick for the win against SCO (5-2). A relief for the Pole, but obviously, Jorge Sampaoli is not always fully convinced.
Since the start of the season, Arkadiusz Milik is in trouble. Back from injury in September, the Pole no longer seemed to be an indisputable holder in the eyes of jorge sampaoli. Against theOL at the beginning of the week, the former striker of the Naples had to wait until the 84th minute to enter the game, insufficient to prevent the defeat of theIF (1-2). A few days later, at a press conference, jorge sampaoli did not regret his choice, even sending a very clear message to Arkadiusz Milik : « I tried different things, like Payet in number 9. For me, Payet is a striker. I’m also trying to see if it’s better to play with wingers or not. (…) What is always important for me is that OM win. The most important thing is really not the names, whether it’s Milik or Sampaoli. I want the best for the team. Today, those who are the best play. However, aware of the disappointing offensive performance of his offensive sector, jorge sampaoli decided to change the system on the occasion of the receipt ofAngers Friday night. Arkadiusz Milik was thus titular alongside Cedric Bakambu and the Polish international took the opportunity to score a hat-trick which allowed theIF to win (5-2).
