The Curva Sud will continue their protest in a very civil way, but the environment will be cold for Stefano Pioli’s debut.

Milan sacked Marco Giampaolo after the win over Genoa and tonight is the first game of new coach Stefano Pioli, as the Rossoneri take on Lecce at San Siro.

As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, there should be around 48,000 fans at the stadium for tonight’s game (2,700 of Lecce), but the environment will be cold.

This is because, according to GdS and Milannews.it’s Pietro Mazzara, the Curva Sud will keep their protest going also this evening. The Rossoneri ultras will be in deafening silence for the entire match: there will not be choirs of any kind from the first to the last minute, regardless of how the game goes.

There will also be banners on display: the banner “Time expired… Demonstrate!”, that was shown in the away game at Stadio Luigi Ferraris on Giampaolo’s last game, will be shown again. In addition, there will be a very big banner that will occupy the entire balcony of the Secondo Anello, where the Curva sit: “From management to the field: work and fight for these people who love Milan madly”.

The Curva has chosen a form of civil protest. In the last home game, against Fiorentina, the ultras empties their seats during the second half. Tonight, San Siro will be much quieter than normal.

I get it but I think at least we should respect our new coach at the first game. He is a gentleman and respectful person. on the other hand being silent is not such a harsh protest. ( I don’t know which side I’m defending 🙂 )

You think this mentally weak and characterless team will perform under protests? It will be another blow to their already impacted confidence. Oh and what a welcome for the new coach especially since he has birthday. Embarassing

They should continue to protest until the club show the are serious about getting into the top 4. You know we got rebic for 30 something mil. But we could have gone for timo Werner who has a release clause of just 30 mil! We should have got a better coach. The management and owners have no clue as to what they are doin. Our purchases could have been better for both players and a coach. In order to make money, you gotta spend money on real quality, not just untapped quantity. Timo, Everton, sensi, chiesa, tonali etc. these are… Read more »

Stupid protest!! Are the curva sud still relevant? I bet you when Milan begin scoring beautiful goals in this match, they will forget themselves and about goal before becoming quiet again, lol. Curva sud long lost my respect. They are part of Milan’s problems really

Who the three players upfront that will be deployed is very critical tonight. It will determine the team success of making chances

What are they protesting exactly? Elliot gave us what we were asking for – the reign of MaldiniBoban and the sacking of Gatusso. Back where I come from there’s a saying “At the weekend you eat what you prepared all week”. Well …

Anyways, good luck to Pioli, he will need all the luck possible.
