Milan take the tactical route

While others splash the cash on household names, Anthony Barbagallo believes Milan have made the most important investment in a real tactician.

Witnessing a seven-time Champions League winner sleep for the last six Serie A seasons has been nothing but tragic for one of Calcio’s titans. With half of the Italian media describing this crisis as a period of mediocrity, some believe, including former coaching legend Arrigo Sacchi, that Marco Giampaolo’s footballing philosophy will steer this Milan side back on the path to prosperity.

The mere fact that the Rossoblu were even able to avoid the drop will be talked about for years to come and much of the praise must go to Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic.
