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.
Ac.Milan just barely managed to defeat Sassuolo in their Coppa Italia match as the scoreboard displayed 2-1 which was just enough for Filippo Inzaghi and his players to book their spot into the next rounds of the Italian competition.
Lazio also was able to win their Coppa Italia match which was against Torino and now Lazio will be facing off with Ac.Milan in the quarter-final rounds.
Fernando Torres has never really managed to play as well as he did during his time as a player of Athletic Madrid and Liverpool which was some years ago. When Torres played in Liverpool, he formed an attacking partnership with Steven Gerrard that was groundbreaking but ever since leaving Anfield, Fernando Torres has not been able to score goals on a consistent basis.
Filippo Inzaghi is the role model of Andrej Kramaric, the 23-year old footballer from Croatia, who is on the radar of many Italian clubs at the moment.
According to Kramaric, he had first seen Inzaghi playing for Juventus back in the late nineties and he became the fan of the striker instantly.
AC Milan Chief executive Adriano Galliani has claimed that Chelsea midfielder Marco van Ginkel resisted the lure to join the Italian club on a season-long loan deal. The Dutch midfielder moved to Chelsea last summer for around £ 8 million, but he missed most of last campaign due to an anterior crucial ligament injury. He has regained his fitness during pre-season and was part of several friendly matches in the summer. However, the presence of players like Cesc Fabregas and Nemanja Matic ahead of him in the pecking order may see first team opportunities limited for the 21-year-old.
Manuel Pellegrini, the manager of Manchester City, is not sure whether he would be able to play his full fledged starting XI in the first league match against Newcastle United on 17th of this month.
Quite a few regular City players including the captain Vincent Kompany have not joined the squad for the pre season. They are likely to be at Etihad next week which means that they won’t have even 15 days to get themselves in shape for the Newcastle game.
Filippo Inzaghi, the manager of AC Milan, is happy to have been able to finalize Diego Lopez’s deal with Real Madrid. He reckons that the joining of the veteran shot stopper would be beneficial for the Rossoneri.
Lopez was the first choice goalie for Real Madrid in La Liga last season, but, with Keylor Navas coming in this summer, the Los Blancos decided to offload the Spaniard who has already crossed his thirty.
