AC Milan have been enjoying a remarkable turnaround in fortunes since the start of the season. The club finished outside the top six last season in a very disappointing campaign. This led to the sacking of Clarence Seedorf and former striker Filippo Inzaghi was appointed in his place. The team started in brilliant fashion by winning the opening two matches. Even though their form has dipped in recent weeks, it has still been enough to keep them in contention for a top three finish. This will be enough to see them return to the Champions League next season.
AC Milan recently signed former Real Madrid goalkeeper Diego Lopez on a free transfer after the Spanish club decided to let the 32-year-old choose a club of this destination. Lopez was a former Real Madrid youth team product before going on to make his name at the likes of Villarreal and Sevilla. He returned to the Santiago Bernebeu in the 2013 season in order to act as a replacement for the injured Iker Casillas. His impressive form between the sticks made then manager Jose Mourinho make him as the first choice in the place of Casillas, who is considered as a club legend.
AC Milan wants to buy Pepe Reina, the shot stopper of Liverpool, but, they might not be able to secure that deal due to money issues.
Reina had featured for Napoli in the Italian top tier in the previous season and had been reasonably successful there. The Blues management wanted to have him on a permanent basis this summer, but, they had to change their mind eventually because of the transfer fee of 4 million Pounds demanded by Liverpool and the huge weekly salary of Reina.
Andrea Poli, the Italian playmaker, has said that Filippo Inzaghi would help the Rossoneri become a real force in Europe and all over the world.
Inzaghi has recently been given the charge of AC Milan after the sacking of Clarence Seedorf.
The 40-year Old had been the manager of the youth side of Milan since the last couple of years and he had done a good job there. Being impressed by that, the Milan board decided to get him involved with the senior team.
It is widely speculated that AC Milan are about to part company with manager Clarence Seedorf, who has failed to deliver European football to the team. Seedorf was appointed as the replacement for Massimiliano Allegri midway through the last campaign. Allegri was sacked due to poor results, which put the club’s immediate future in European football in major doubt. Despite this appointment, the former Milan midfielder failed to turn the fortunes of the club. They finished in a disappointing place outside the top six, which will mean no form of European football season.
AC Milan manager Clarence Seedorf has stated that he has no problems with the defeat suffered against Roma, but he is now already looking forward to the Milan derby next week. AC Milan’s five match winning run came to an end after they suffered a 2-0 defeat against Roma. Unlike in previous years, this Roma team have been brilliant this campaign. They would have won the league title had it not been for Juventus. Roma have won 13 out of the 14 matches prior to this encounter. Due to this incredible record, they are set to return to Champions League in the coming season.
Antonio Nocerino’s stay with Ac.Milan was characterized by the Italian midfielder having to spend more time on the sidelines of the squad than on the actual playing grounds which is one of the main reasons on why he was offloaded to West Ham United on January, as he was transferred to the Premier League club on a loan deal which will last until the end of the current season.
The much anticipated revival at AC Milan after the arrival of Clarence Seedorf has not materialised as the club lost their 10th league match of the season after a 1-0 defeat against Udinese during the weekend.
Seedorf rested a number of key players for this match in the hope of keeping them fresh for the midweek Champions League encounter against Atletico Madrid. The likes of Kaka and Mario Balotelli were not available from the start. The move hurt the club immensely after they looked devoid of quality when compared with the Udinese team.
The 19 years old French forward of AC Milan, M’Baye Niang has been sentenced to a suspended 18 month jail sentence after hitting several cars and crashing into a tree with his Ferrari. Some of the players that were involved with the incident filed civil complaints as they were slightly injured because of what the young player caused.
Massimiliano Allegri and the transfer guru Adriano Galliani will do whatever is possible in this transfer window to try and help Ac.Milam enjoy a better half of the season contrary to the initial stages of the season.
Keisuke Honda was signed even before the January transfer window was opened and other players are in the list of Ac.Milan as they can use just about any help they can get to not only finish in the higher spots of the Serie A but also in their Champions League campaign as Ac.Milan has to face off against Atletico Madrid in February.
