Pioli: 'Suso available'

Stefano Pioli said Suso “is available” ahead of the Brescia match, despite meeting with the directors at Milan yesterday regarding his future.

The Spanish winger has been linked with a move back to Spain, and reports in Italy have also claimed that Roma are following his situation at San Siro.

But Pioli has claimed he will be available to play on Friday and pointed out that Lucas Paqueta will also be at his disposal.

“Suso is training very well,” Pioli said at a press conference. “He is available to play.

“There’s a lot left of the transfer market. All the players who are here, are very helpful. They’re involved and attentive.

“Lucas [Paqueta] is like the others; he thinks he can play and is not satisfied when he doesn’t. But then you work well, and you are ready when you are called upon. We must continue.

Ricardo Rodriguez’ transfer to Fenerbahce seems to be stuck in limbo, but the Switzerland international could be leaving San Siro this winter.

Pioli wouldn’t entertain the rumours and said he “should be part of the squad” after recovering from an injury.

“I won’t be the one giving updates on the market. Rodriguez had a physical problem that seems to have been solved,” Pioli added. “He should be part of the squad. I am concerned about the team remaining focused, without losing energy on things I can’t control”.
