The club does not intend to sack Montella, despite the 2-0 loss today.
People were already calling for the sacking of Vincenzo Montella before today’s match against Roma, and those voices are now going to intensify as the Rossoneri lost their third match of the season and second in a row in Serie A.
Milan did fairly well until for 70 minutes but after Edin Dzeko scored in the 72′ minute, they completely lost their head, conceding again shortly (77′) after and suffering a red card (Hakan Çalhanoğlu in the 80′ minute – he will miss the Derby della Madonnina).
The Diavolo did a lot better in this defeat than in the losses to Lazio (4-1) and Sampdoria (2-0) but it’s hardly a consolation for the fans who want to see an immediate change on the Milan bench. The official position of the club, in any case, is that they have absolute confidence in coach Montella.
Marco Fassone and Massimiliano Mirabelli chose Montella to lead their technical project and although the results have been poor so far, they still believe that he is the right man to stir what seems to be a sinking ship. Sky and Milannews.it are both in agreement – Montella’s job is secured.
Montella will have some time to rethink things as the international break is upcoming. Afterwards, Milan face Inter. A defeat there, and the red and black season could already be over after 8 games.
