Locatelli dropped for Samp?

Milan will reportedly drop Manuel Locatelli for Jose Sosa when Sampdoria visit San Siro on Sunday.

According to Calciomercato, Coach Vincenzo Montella is ready to mix things up after three straight defeats to Napoli, Udinese and Juventus.

Consequently, Locatelli appears to be in the firing line, with his place to be taken by Sosa, although it would only be a temporary measure for the teenager to regain his confidence.

The 18-year-old was sent off against Juve, while his poor clearance assisted Cyril Thereau for Udinese’s first goal in a 2-1 win.
