17 goals in two seasons isn't actually "proven". But yeah, the potential is there. This can only be unlocked with constant play time. My issue is, if Silva is that good, why was he ignored by two managers? If the fans verdict is Kalinic is useless how comes he gets picked ahead of Silva time and time again? Maybe there's a conspiracy by Montella, taken up by Gattuso, against Milan!! Play the worst players and bench the better ones? Of course coaches make mistakes. But if a player keep getting ignored by a succession of coaches, there must be a reason. There has to be something about Silva's play that maybe the coaches see. Recall you guys war-cry for Cutrone to start. He started two games and did zilch. Nothing. In fact he was voted FOTM against Crotone. I personally I'm not too taken up by Silva. Not convinced. Yes he's young, has scored in the UEL where the opposition is weak and open. I acknowledge that his potential. But questions is if the coaches don't trust him, can we afford the luxury to give him the time needed to reach his potential?
