Highlights: Sassuolo 0-2 Milan


MILAN FINISHED the 2014 edition of the Trofeo TIM in first place after beating both Juventus and Sassuolo in 45-minute long matches at the Mapei Stadium. The Rossoneri played very well against Sassuolo and already after 7 minutes Jeremy Menez found the net from the penalty spot: Milan earned this rather soft pk after a Menez ball (followed by a nice run) hit the hand of a Sassuolo defender. In the 19′ minute, Keisuke Honda found Stephan El Shaarawy with a great ball and the Italian ran very well and finished calmly to make it 2-0. Milan had more chances to score and were in complete control. Filippo Inzaghi lifts the Trofeo TIM just 8 days before the Serie A opener against Lazio at San Siro.

Sassuolo: Pomini; Gazzola, Terranova, Cannavaro (Acerbi), Longhi (Peluso); Chibsah (Biondini), Magnanelli (Kurtic), Brighi (Missiroli); Berardi (Sansone), Flores (Zaza), Floccari. Unused: Polito, Antei, Ariaudo, Sereni. Coach: Eusebio Di Francesco.

Milan: Abbiati; De Sciglio (Zaccardo), Rami, Zapata, Armero; Cristante, Essien (Poli), Saponara; El Shaarawy, Menez (Pazzini), Honda (Mastour). Unused: Diego Lopez, Agazzi, Abate, Albertazzi, Bonera, Alex, Muntari, Mastalli. Coach: Filippo Inzaghi.

Mario gone elsha back on on the scoring sheet bravo bravo


They played fluent and faster. Even without Balo the attacking players did well.

I think cerci and Dzemaili will come.

Galliani be like…”this proves milan is most succesful club in the world” Just kidding. I’m actually very pleased with the performance.

Hahahahahahahaha mr inzhagi u just lifted a trophy in milan since 2010..nice play milan.bolotelli is gone now el shaarwy is back on track


We did it but that doesn’t stop us from buying players. I’ve gone tru ma books, the last time we bought in a big name was 2010 we won the league. Please milan management, make your supporters happy for once and sign, stop procrastinating

Milan should get Taarabt he is a utility player


Good performance in this tournament especially for Honda, Menez, El Shaarawy, De Sciglio…also Muntari…but keep improve…it’s only pre-season….we should keep focus on getting additional players….

Some Guy

Poli also impressed me a lot, I think he deserves to start.


Against Juve, i think Poli was the MOM. He tackled, dribbled, and lost only one ball. He’ll have a great impact in our midfield, if he continues to play in this form. Honda played good football too, not only because he scored against Juve. He had vision in passes. Look at his pass for example at El Shaarawy’s goal. You can’t teach that pass, it’s coming from the talent. El Shaarawy is on the right track. Anyway, if we won’t sign a world class CF, i think we should play with false 9, who is Menez (sub: Niang). As i… Read more »

The Milano

Borini is a decent striker he was linked to milan a couple of days ago, I think he’ll be better option than Destro…cost less as well he has a fantastic workrate.


Take a look guys tell me what you think.


I’m glad that balotelli left milan. We are not focusing on one player now, we are having more speed, even still need improvement on passing and shooting.

Taarabt should return to milan, because he is good at passing and shooting. his weakness is just he like to hold the ball for too long.


Taarabt, destro, and maybe rabiot (I never saw him play so I’m unsure) should be brought in. I still think we can do better on defensive formations, maybe we need a specialist there too.


Milan my life#Love u rossoneri


I’m happy we won


Honda and Essien both had great games, actually Honda was a amazing and finally looked comfortable. One huge thing I noticed is our counter attacks greatly improved and our set pieces were set up very well both for attack and defence. I hope we get some morale on this because to be honest, I think that’s the best we’ve played in two years. Everyoneworked hard and we looked like a team out there. We had pace power and great creativity in the middle! I heard niang is apart of the Cerci deal, is this why he didn’t play? Also mexes… Read more »

Wait till the season starts…then we can access the team but they played very well today

Main man

Off topic,i hope galliani will not sign Eto,Torres,Soldado this guys will not help milan reach its lofty target


In my opinion we should try to buy a fast winger, a fast midfielder and taarabt as backup, because we were very dangerous and created many chances when we played fast!!


I hope this winning will not hold B & G from spending.


Where are the moaners?? I am not hearing you?? Seems you are looking for a negative thing to talk about.. isnt this a preseason game and we won both.. now they will say Allegri is the fault of us winning.. lol


Keep the spirit… I am in love with Milan whenever they score I am full with joy like a baby .. Forzaaaaaa Milllllaaaaan!!!


We are not complete. I’m glad the squad played well though!!


Gds reports that Jô, Fred and Damião are offered by them agents to us.
NO TO Jô and Fred, but I think Damião would be a great signing.
My other two options would be Falcao (haha) and Destro.

Pls also get Cerci and Grenier/Rabiot/Dzemaili

Sell: Zaccardo, Essien, Albertazzi, maybe Abate and Mexes for good offers


Offsider, just because we won this fake competition it does not mean the same problems arnt there. If anything it sadly shows us how bad the italian league has become. Juventus arnt in the best form, im down in australia and they only just beat our leagues all stars 3-2…our league is ranked 100th in the world! Also you would expect to beat sassuolo. Good job anyway lads but im no where near happy yet.


De Sciglio looked better as a rb imo…
I think he should play on the right and armero on the left, because abate was awful yesterday. Good runs and pace, but unable to deliver a good cross, as always


I’d give Abate time, i bet Inzaghi will improve his crosses. I can rely our attacking system to Pippo. But i agree, if everybody is healthy, now it seems that De Sciglio and Armero should start. But Iggy is a good backup if anybody got injured, or banned. In fact, i’d sell Zaccardo and Bonera, because even Albertazzi and Zapata can play better fullback than them. So i don’t see any reason keeping them. For CB’s there are Alex, Rami, Zapata (Mexes if he stays) too, and De Sciglio an De Jong played CB earlier on high level.


Lol at jo and fred. I agree with damiao, i havent seen him in years but i remember seeing some compilation of him and the guy had/has some serious skills. I rekon sell abate only if there is a solid offer, i still think he has something to offer. His crosses have improved imo.

I think we will get cerci, along with a striker. i think thats all we can afford. De jong and monti back in mid and the team wont look so bad..unless bonera is still a starter of course.
