Silvio Berlusconi has confirmed that Sinisa Mihajlovic will stay on as the coach of AC Milan if he manages to win the Coppa Italia.
The Italian outfit have been in decline for quite a while. None of the managers have been able to reveal the club, as the problem largely appears to arise from the owner. The lack of investments in playing staff mean that managers have not been able to get consistent results.Mihajlovic looked to have found a way in the first few weeks of the season, but he has not been able to arrest the slide that since followed.
AC Milan gained an immense bout of confidence after a 3-0 win over archrivals Inter Milan on Sunday.
This was a huge morale booster for the team which has been looking to build on the recent good run of form. ManagerSinisaMihajlovic only recently received a vote of confidence from the owner Berlusconi, who has been looking to get the club back into the top levels of Italian football. It has been a good few years since AC Milan last were seen in the top three places. The club are now just six points behind Fiorentina, who are third in the table.
Napoli kept their position at the top of the table following a sixth consecutive victory in the league.
The 5-1 success over Empoli was very important considering that Juventus had also managed a win from their match. The difference between the two teams is only two points at the top of the table. Napoli are the unlikely candidate for the league title whereas Juventus remain the strong favourites after having won the title for the past four seasons. Maurizio Sarri has masterminded the title challenge from the underdogs and he believes that there is no pressure from Juventus.
AC Milan have faced so many problems over the last five years that former coach Carlo Ancelotti believes that it will be tough for the team to think about immediate success even after the appointment of SinisaMihajlovic.
AC Milan have confirmed through a statement that midfielder Nigel de Jong will not be available for the match against Juventus on Saturday. This will be one of the crucial matches for Milan in their attempts to recover from a deep well.
Sinisa Mihajlovic is the 4th manager that has taken over Ac.Milan since January of 2014. Mauro Tassotti, Clarence Seedorf and Filippo Inzaghi were all of the former managers of the Italian club that had to be removed from their managerial position after a disappointing season.
Mauro Tassotti was the only one who wasn’t sacked as he only served as an interim manager and still has a close relationship with Ac.Milan as he is working as a talent scout for the Italian outfit.
AC Milan have been given the green light towards building a new stadium that will see them on the path towards self-sufficiency.
The club has been sharing its San Siro ground with arch rivals Inter Milan for several years, but even this ground does not belong to the club. Instead, it belongs to the city and hence there are no income and revenue to be had from this massive stadium. San Siro has a capacity of more than 80,000 fans. Now, Milan will be moving to a much smaller ground, but one that could get them around £ 50 million per year according to Barbara Berlusconi.
Sevilla coach Unai Emery has not dismissed the rumours linking him with the vacant managerial job at AC Milan. The Italian outfit are looking for a new manager after deciding to part company with Filippo Inzaghi just 12 months into his job.
Massimiliano Allegri was the last coach that managed to lift the Serie A title with Ac.Milan and this accomplishment was achieved back on May of 2011 which was when Ac.Milan won the 2010-11 season of the Italian League and were crowned as the champions of Italy but ever since then things have begun to fall apart for them as the team has switched managers on a number of occasions and still continue to underperform.
You have to be an eternal optimist to be able to take positives out of a very poor performance.
And, Filippo Inzaghi definitely seems to be one that sort of a person.
The man just does not lose heart. He does not look beaten no matter what.
AC Milan’s outing versus Chievo was not their first disappointing show in the season. There have been plenty of those over the summer and in the early parts of the winter too.
Any manager at Inzaghi’s place would have got a bit ruffled and would have tried to find excuses, but, the 41-year old has been graceful till this point of time.
