Bryan Cristante Overview


 

Overview:

Bryan Cristante (born 3 March 1995) is an Italian footballer who plays as a midfielder for Serie A club Milan. He also holds a Canadian passport, as his father was born there. He played in the Primavera but he has been promoted to the first team with the upcoming season

He made his professional debut for Milan on 6 December 2011, aged 16 years and 278 days, coming on as a substitute for Robinho in the CL group stage match against Viktoria Plzen, which ended in a 2–2 draw. He thus became the youngest ever Milan player to feature in a Champions League game and third youngest overall. Cristante was elected as the best player at the Torneo di Viareggio 2013. On 4 March 2013, Cristante signed his first professional contract, which will keep him at Milan until 2018. He will join the first team squad at the start of the 2013/2014 season

Traits:

His skills best align with that of a deep lying playmaker, i haven’t watched a whole lot of him this year (bar the Inter game and the Viareggio) but exactly how talented he is remains to be seen, Galliani has said that he’s like a “Faster version of Redondo”.  He has also consistently played for the Italian national teams at the U16, U17, and U18 levels. At the Valentin Grenatkin Memorial Tournament in Russia earlier this year, he not only captained the U18 side, but also won the MVP award when Italy faced Belarus. Maybe it is just this combination of talent and leadership that made it easy for Galliani to promote him to the first team. Many people claim that he will most likely deputize for Montolivo, but we will have to wait and see what his Milan future holds exactly. The fact that he is flexible, talented, and seems to have a good attitude is good enough for me

Conclusion:

He has made some unofficial appearances with the first team, including the TIM cup last year and the U.S. tour last July, i think its it’s time to let him get a few official matches under his belt. He is only 18, so he may not start every match, but has always seemed very collected and skilled with what little amount that I have seen him play
