Italian cup is the only competition that we can play our youth and see them in real action yet we always take it seriously (and lose at the end). It’s a lose lose situation when playing a squad full of senior players in Cup.

Gbenga AJOSE

You are absolutely correct mate. I wonder what d hell about this Italian cup. We are toying with injury. We should play all our young stars and primeva players. All the key players should be rested for Serie A games. No excuse not to win d league.

SOHEIL

Kerkez & chaka deserve to start in such a match. And now we lost tomori to a cup match

Dindudre

Rushing players back from injury is becoming a norm for this crazy coach. when will he ever learn??? Now we might lose Tomori for a longer period of time, smh

We have to agree at some point that D.maldini does have that x factor

PJOHNSON

Doesn’t** I mean

Milan

Any good links please

Milan

Any good links please?

PJOHNSON

D.Maldini and KR need to be replaced asap

Milan

Any good links to see the game?

Harris

You mean more like D.Maldini should be sent on loan. The only reason he is still at the club is because of his Name. We need to help him by sending him to Seria B. Let him work his way up.

Dindudre

I don’t know how yall can’t see that this guy’s tactics is horrible. it’s been horrible since the last two seasons. Our middle always looks empty no matter who is playing there. Feels like every team knows to play us through the middle. smh

Caesar

I placed a bet that Milan will win this game, Pioli better know what he is doing! Milan has not won any cup in a long time so winning copa Italia and Seria A won’t be a crime.

Leao T

Messias is the most horrible play on the pitch. Misplaced pass and everything. Take him out coach and don’t be stupid

Dindudre

Yes Leao was definitely the game changer but Bakayoko brought so much stability to the midfield compared to Krunic. Krunic needs to be thrown out of this team pls.

SJF

Terrible game and terrible performance

Terry

So much negativity in the comments. You won’t even know that we won. Guys we won. Let’s take the W and move forward.

SOHEIL

Winning what? Fatigue? Injuries? Less experience for the future?
