Jan-Carlo Simic performed well in the top flight level for Stefano Pioli's team when he was needed. He even scored a goal in his debut. He definitely has gained the trust of the coach as well as the affection from the Rossoneri fans.
The Serbian defender who is 18 years old has not played for the first time, however, for some time, and that is because of the improvement in Simon Kjaer's condition and the return of Matteo Gabbia from Villarreal have reduced opportunities for the young player. Space, that in all likelihood will decrease further in the coming weeks once Fikayo Tomori, Pierre Kalulu and Malick Thiaw become available for team selection again.
There is also another issue to address regarding Simic, and it's related to his future. The contract of the former Stuttgart talent expires in just over a year, in June 2025. It's still not a "big" contract, which was not adjusted before his debut nor after, when his performances caught everyone's attention. A signature on the future still to be written, which, however, can also become a risk, as hinted by Calciomercato.com.
