The Rossoneri won two 45-minute matches on Tuesday in South Italy as Sinisa Mihajlovic gave a chance to youth and bench players.
Milan failed to win against Atalanta and Juventus but at least have something to smile about as today (Tuesday) they defeated both Bari and Inter 1-0 to win the San Nicola Trophy.
Milan (like the other teams) mainly used reserve and bench players in this round-robin competition that consisted of mini 45 minute matches.
The Rossoneri played first, beating Bari thanks to a 13′ minute own goal scored by Denis Tonucci. Inter then went on to beat the Biancorossi 2-0 (goals from Rey Manaj and Fredy Guarin). In the final match, Milan defeated the Nerazzurri with a 15-minute Andrea Poli strike which was enough.
At the end of the evening, veteran goalkeeper Christian Abbiati was awarded the San Nicola Trophy, as can be seen in the picture below (image via Milan’s Facebook page):
