Milan finished the past campaign on the 5th rung of Serie A, just 1 point off the top 4, but they saw their qualification to the Europa League cancelled due to violation of the UEFA financial fair play. The gritty Gennaro Gattuso was let go as the new management opted for a coach who goes for a more entertaining kind of football. So, Marco Giampaolo arrived after 3 seasons at Sampdoria. While he certainly offers spectacular play, mostly adopting a 4-3-1-2 formation, Giampaolo has never led a team higher than the 9th standing, as his sides usually enjoy a dip of form in the spring-time after strong starts to the season. The Milan squad was one filled with too much deadwood and it was wisely trimmed over the summer. So, the likes of Montolivo, Mauri and Bertolacci were all let go, after mostly failing to play last season, while veterans like Zapata and Abate were given the chance to look for their last deals elsewhere. Cutrone was the sole relevant player to be sold: he did not have many chances to play, while Bakayoko’s loan was not renewed despite his good performances. In terms of new signings, Milan opted for a rejuvenation of the squad and picked up all players younger than 25. For the defence, they hired a centre-back in Duarte, who has no European experience, and Theo Hernandez, from Real Madrid, as left-back. From Empoli, Krunic and Bennacer should provide creativity and muscle for the midfield while Rafa Leao, who did well in France at Lille, should support Piatek up-front. Donnarumma was confirmed between the sticks but he is still wanted by some big European clubs: his departure would leave them in big trouble if not properly replaced. Moreover, they also need more depth up-front.

Target


Milan should be fighting for a place in the top 4 but it will mostly depend on Giampaolo’s competence in this first experience with a top team.

Season Review
2018/2019

№5: Milan

Another inconsistent season for AC Milan which ultimately ended in failure to return to the Champions League. The Rossoneri finished one place higher than last season and with a bigger points tally but it wasn't enough for Gennaro Gattuso to stay at the club as he announced his resignation. Gattuso divided opinion - many love the passion he still exudes from the sidelines and the honesty he showed in his assessment of his own shortcomings. The manager often blames himself before anyone or anything else - even though his squad faced an injury crisis at times this season and some decisions went against them. Gattuso never looked to make excuses. In the cold light of day though, despite his admirable qualities as a man - is Gattuso a good enough coach to lead AC Milan back to where they want to go? The results and performances on the pitch suggest not. The Rossoneri did have some purple patches scattered throughout the campaign. Perhaps their best run came after the January arrivals of Lucas Paqueta and the prolific Krzysztof Piatek. Both were excellent in the first couple of months of 2019 - with Piatek especially achieving cult status amongst the Milanisti - but a heartbreaking defeat against bitter rivals Inter set off another poor run of form which the squad never really recovered from. As much as it can be easy to blame the manager, it is also pertinent to look at the squad of players he has to work with. This is a very workmanlike group of players - not many of whom would get into the great Milan sides of recent history. Their big acquisition of the summer was Gonzalo Higuain but it seems quite clear now that he has seen better days and was shipped off to Chelsea in January. Suso is the only one who can really create something out of nothing and even he is often inconsistent. The Spaniard ended up joint-second on the assist chart for Serie A with 10 and also bagged 7 goals. Alessio Romagnoli and Gianluigi Donnarumma are still very young but could be stalwarts at the San Siro if they stick around. With both Gattuso and sporting director Leonardo leaving the club, it's now up to the board to make the right appointments in order to return this great club to its former glories.
