THE ITALIAN PRESS suggests that AC Milan’s Abbiati, Gattuso and Inzaghi are unhappy with Brazilian Coach Leonardo and might move on during the next transfer window.
The change of coach was timely. Carlo Aneclotti’s era ended and with it, the defensive Milan died. Leonardo’s Milan think only about attack, but some players are unhappy with this change.
The Rossoneri had a very tough and bad start to the season, but after a while, the real Milan, the one Leonardo wanted appeared and with it the right results. However, this system costs a lot and requires high standards.
il Corriere dello Sport reports that Milan goalkeeper Christian Abbiati, midfielder Gennaro Gattuso and attacker Filipp0 Inzaghi are no longer happy with the Black & Red side following a dispute with coach Leonardo.
Christian Abbiati returned from his injury and has 100% of fitness but he’s tired by Coach Leonardo’s overlooking him. The Brazilian coach used Marco Storari when he was injured but now Dida is in goal.
Nelson was out of action at the start of the season but last term was only Abbasid’s replacement. However, Christian feels that he needs to play while Leonardo has not even called him up for Sunday’s clash.
Gennaro Gattuso has been seriously linked with a move away from San Siro as Manchester City have shown interest in the hard man. Gattuso is not happy with Leonardo and thinks that he needs to play more.
The Italian is still out due to an injury but he is now a bench player – a thing that he cannot occur in his mind. ‘Rino would not leave midway said vice president Adriano Galliani but anything could happen.
Filippo Inzaghi has been at Milan since 2001. The Italian a scoring machine but in Leonardo’s system, Marco Borriello or Klaas-Jan Huntelaar are more fit to the central attacker position between Pato and Ronaldinho.
Inzaghi played very little this season, but scored some important goals to Milan side; however, this is hard to believe that the veteran would finish his career with Milan or be in use in many matches this season.
The Italian sport daily believe that this is very likely for Abbiati and Inzaghi to leave at the end of the season as Milan trying to rejuvenate the squad while Gattuso will stay as Massimo Ambrosini’s sub.
