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.
