Pippo Inzaghi said Suso’s performance against Reggiana “can make it difficult” to leave him out of the Milan side.
The Spanish winger has made just one 11-minute Coppa Italia appearance since joining from Liverpool in January, but netted twice in today’s 3-0 friendly victory.
“That is his role and I’d been wanting to try him there for a while,” Coach Inzaghi told Milan Channel.
“We need to help him settle in, but if he plays like that then he can make it difficult for me to pick my line-up.
“The team interpreted the game well and I liked their attitude. The Primavera youth players also did well and I think that’s a good sign for the future of Milan.
“I’ve known Mastalli for a while and Felicioli also did well on the left. We’ve got talented youngsters, but you need the right situation to launch their senior careers and we don’t have that right now.
“Mattia De Sciglio and Cristian Zapata have recovered and could’ve played today. It’s good to have almost all the squad at my disposal.”
