AC Milan made a surprise positive start to the new Italian Serie A season after a 3-2 win over Torino.
Following the game, manager Vincenzo Montella said that the team had a long way to go before winning back the fans. Milan have been declining as a club in the last decade. After several years of protests, fans have started turning against the team. They have been expressing their displeasure by not renewing season tickets and other means. Montella came as the new AC Milan manager in the summer and he has already made a difference.
