Montella can revive Milan again

Vincenzo Montella fixed Milan’s problems once and he can do it again, writes Richard Hall, if given time.

The Duomo di Milano sits proudly in the aptly named Piazza del Duomo and is perhaps the ever- present symbol of Milanese patience. The ground was broken to create the structure in 1386 and it was officially completed in 1965. The city’s second cathedral, at San Siro, has also evolved over the years and it is perhaps to these great creations that fans of the Rossoneri should look to when beckoning in change. Their team is also undergoing a vast facelift and, whilst the results are not yet as beautiful as they want right now, there is reason to be patient.

Mazzarri and Sousa linked with Milan

Walter Mazzarri and Paulo Sousa are two names being linked with the Milan job, should Vincenzo Montella be sacked.

The Rossoneri Coach has come under intense pressure in recent weeks following a poor run of results that has left the San Siro club well off the pace in the race for Champions League places.

Last night’s 2-0 home defeat to Juventus only added to the scrutiny on Montella, who has now presided over just one win in six Serie A matches.

Mazzarri option for Torino bench?

Milan: Sousa or wait for big name?

Milan reportedly deciding between Paulo Sousa and Gennaro Gattuso as caretaker if Vincenzo Montella is sacked, awaiting Antonio Conte or Carlo Ancelotti.

Milan call in Sousa?

While Sky Sport Italia insist Milan are sticking with Vincenzo Montella, the Corriere dello Sport points to Paulo Sousa.

The Rossoneri are without a Serie A victory in over a month, ending their run of three consecutive defeats with today’s 0-0 draw against Genoa.

Considering Leonardo Bonucci was sent off after 25 minutes for lashing out an elbow on Aleandro Rosi, the result and performance were less disappointing than other recent outings.

Montella must stay at Milan

Despite Milan’s turbulent start to the season, Vincenzo Montella must stay on as Coach, argues Matthew Santangelo.

It’s no surprise that in the aftermath of Sunday’s 2-0 defeat to Roma at San Siro, many Milan supporters ramped up their efforts in support of the ‘Montella Out’ campaign. Unsatisfied with a lacklustre product and the poor results that come with it, major questions have been raised as to whether the former Fiorentina boss is fit to manage this squad under the lofty expectations of a top four finish.
