Chukwueze was in action for the entire 90 minutes as AC Milan defeated Fiorentina 1-0 win at the Guiseppe Meaza Stadium, his input enough to get positive rating from his manager, Stephan Pioli.
” I was happy with his (Chukwueze) performance on Saturday, ” Pioli said.
“He worked a lot for the team, he found himself in the right positions. He also had a difficult start due to an injury. Now in my opinion he’s fine.

The winger joined AC Milan from Villarreal in the summer but has not really hit the ground running in Italy.
