Shouldn’t this be the game where this clueless coach tries Pellegrino in that 3-man backline ?? I wonder how some players keep coming to Milan after they see how this coach treats players. SMH


Musah as wingback … wtf is he thinking. Already abandoning the 4-3-3? It wasn’t bad, we created s lot of chances, we just couldn’t put them in . Ugh. Playing ppl out of position is not a good recipe .

This coach is not convincing atall. Our tactics is so terrible. We started time management at a the 55 minute against Hellas Verona while up by only 1 ??? Embarrassing
