    Inzaghi: “A challenging start to the 2014/15 season”

    Filippo Inzaghi signing a Milan shirt in New York (@acmilan)

    FILIPPO INZAGHI hopes to start the season on the right foot but knows it will be difficult.

    Milan have been disastrous in pre-season so far, losing 3-0 to Olympiakos and 5-1 to Manchester City in Toronto and Pittsburg respectively, on their American Tour and with the season starting on August 31st, Filippo Inzaghi has plenty to do.

    The Rossoneri have learned today that their first three matches are against Lazio (H), Parma (A) and Juventus (H) and Milan Channel contacted coach Pippo right after the draw to hear his reaction: “Certainly our start to the start is important and challenging. We should try to start with the right foot. Playing two games out of the first three at Stadio San Siro could be an advantage. Milan-Juventus on Matchday 3? Sooner or later you have to face all the teams but I can already imagine the chills for a packed out San Siro.”

    Milan’s 2014/2015 Serie A calendar

    MILAN OPEN their 14/15 season at home at against Lazio, Juventus are visiting on Matchday 3, derby on Matchday 12.

    The Serie A starts in less than over a month (the season begins on August 31st and ends on May 31st) but only today (Monday) the draw for the 2014/2015 fixture list has been made and Milan have learned what their league calendar is.

    Milan played the first game last season away from home, so they knew that their first 14/15 game will be at home and that it’ll not be a derby (derby isn’t possible in the last matchday as well). Milan have been drawn against S.S. Lazio. (continue reading…)

    Galliani on Tavecchio, Robinho, the mercato and more…

    ADRIANO GALLIANI has said Milan will keep backing Tavecchio and is not worried by the defense of the Rossoneri.

    The Serie A calendar is being announced in these minutes (the full list of matches will be posted here at the end of the draw) and Adriano Galliani discussed some issues regarding the Diavolo & the state of Milan before the start of the event.

    Galliani talked about the candidate for the FIGC Chairman role, Tavecchio, assuring that Milan still support him despite his racist comments last week & also spoke about the transfer market, saying there has been no Besiktas offer for Robinho. (continue reading…)

    Muntari: “Milan will be ready for the start of the league”

    SULLEY MUNTARI has complete faith in the work of coach Filippo Inzaghi and has said that ‘it is not nice to lose’.

    Milan’s United States and Canada tour has been abysmal so far as they conceded 8 goals in two games – against Olympiakos and City. The Rossoneri managed to get the ball inside the opposition’s net, with Muntari being the scorer.

    The Ghana man captained Milan last night against Man City. The EPL side, who used mostly bench and reserve players, tore Milan apart and were 4-0 up by the 30′ minute. Muntari, however, is convinced that the team can do well next year. (continue reading…)

    Inzaghi: “Milan have to improve, the blame lies with me”

    FILIPPO INZAGHI has taken the blame for the awful performance against Man City and asked his players for more.

    For the second pre-season in a row, Milan conceded five goals against Manchester City but last night they probably played worse than they did in the 2013 Audi Cup. The Rossoneri were miserable and were torn up by Man City’s B team.

    Jovetic (12′, 58′), Sinclair (13′), Navas (23′) and Iheanacho (26′) hit a poor Milan who only managed to score once through Muntari (42′). Milan have now conceded 8 goals in their last two games and coach Filippo Inzaghi has taken the heat. (continue reading…)

    Abbiati on last year, Inzaghi, Balo, social networks and more…

    CHRISTIAN ABBIATI has said Balotelli can be like Ibra if he trains as hard and would bet on El Shaarawy for next year.

    Milan will want to remember very little from the 2013/14 term as it was their worst season in recent memory. The Rossoneri finished 8th in the standings and fired two coaches. With new boss Filippo Inzaghi, Milan will be looking to bounce back.

    il Diavolo continue their pre-season and today they face Manchester City in Pittsburg (kick off at 22:00 CET) and according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Christian Abbiati will start in goal. The same Abbiati gave an interview to the pink paper. (continue reading…)

    Report: Milan reject Trabzonspor offer for Constant

    Kevin Constant against Sassuolo, Matchday 38, 2013/14 (@acmilan)

    KEVIN CONSTANT apparently has suitors in Turkey but Milan believe that he is worth more than what Trabzonspor have offered so far.

    Milan are looking to cut down on the number of squad players (despite Galliani’s statement that “every departure will be corresponded with an arrival”) and some players are not in Filippo Inzaghi’s project – like Robinho and Didac Vila.

    Video: El Shaarawy asks fans to renew their season-tickets

    La Gazzetta dello Sport reported this week that Pippo has decided to block the transfer of Cristian Zaccardo and according to a report on SportMediaset this evening, the Rossoneri have rejected an offer from the Turkish side Trabzonspor for Kevin Constant. The Guinean, who arrived from Genoa in 2012, isn’t viewed by the fans as an important piece of the squad, but Milan reportedly believe the offer of Trabzonspor was too low.

    Menez agent: “Jeremy has changed, Milan wanted him most”

    KEVIN MENEZ has revealed why his brother Jeremy chose Milan over other clubs and said his client wants to play.

    The mercato of Milan is currently stuck as they have to move players out before bringing new ones in but they signed some men early in this window. Michael Agazzi, Alex and Jeremy Menez all arrived on free transfers and will look to make impact.

    Menez, like Alex, had his Paris Saint-Germain contract expired last month. He’s currently with the squad in the United States but has yet to debut due to a slight leg problem. His agent, Kevin, has said his brother’s main desire is to play. (continue reading…)

    Galliani: “Balo 99.9% sure to stay, more Binho offers will arrive”

    ADRIANO GALLIANI has assured Balotelli hasn’t asked to leave and said he isn’t too worried by the Olympiakos defeat.

    Milan lost to Olympiakos earlier this week with the score-line showing 3-0 and tomorrow they have another match, against an even better team as they’re set to face the Premier League champs Manchester City at the Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

    The game against the Greeks showed Milan are in need for reinforcement and while it’s true that they were without players like Nigel De Jong, Riccardo Montolivo and Mario Balotelli and were affected by traveling, the performance was pretty bad. (continue reading…)

    Pazzini: “Everybody is working towards a good year”

    GIAMPAOLO PAZZINI believes this squad is worth more than 8th place and wants to get to the Champions League.

    Milan started the International Champions Cup with a defeat to Olympiakos and even though it was their first real match under Filippo Inzaghi, Thursday night wasn’t good news for Milan who want to bounce back from the terrible 13/14 season.

    Last season was disappointing for Pazzini on a personal level as well. He spent the most of the first half of the season recovering from a knee surgery and when he returned he managed to find the net twice in the 18 games that he played. (continue reading…)
