The soccer player from Turkey seemed to pull off a Xavi move, when, after receiving the ball on his own half he drove the ball as a low diagonal. He then picked out Suso who burst into the goal post. He delivered the ball so perfectly that the defender of Crotone had to possibly smell the leather of the ball as it flew past his head, and whizzed in the direction of the recipient towards whom it was sent.
Calhanoglu already has a huge reputation as an amazing free kick maker, based on his demonstrations of his stunning combo of vision, precision and technique, which helps him to spot the pass and perform an immaculate execution. Milan has had a rather disappointing season so far, and fans have been unhappy, except the moment of magic created by one of the most popular footballers Calhanoglu, and it was a much-need change in pace that was welcomed by the fans.
Milan has invested a lot in the likes of Calhanoglu as well as Leonardo Bonucci from Juventus, in this summer. But, the Rossoneri currently acquire the 11th place in Serie A, and are 23 points behind Napoli, who are sitting at the top of the Serie A table. Team Milan were out of the race for winning a respectable spot on the Champions League table at the end of the season, when they showed a gap of 14 point with Rivals Inter in the third place.
Gennaro Gattuso, the legend of the club, was employed to make bring steadiness to the team, after Vincenzo Montella got sacked. However, in his first match, Milan conceded a goal in the 95th minute from the goalkeeper of Benevento, pushing them to the bottom place on the list. In such a situation, it seems that a lot of expectations are being placed on Calhanoglu.
