Ignazio Abate and his Milan Primavera will begin the season on Saturday and it could be a very exciting one. In fact, the former Milan right-back has made it clear that he wants to modernise the team.
Milan’s Primavera side, which is the last stop for the youngsters before the first team, has struggled in recent years and only just avoided relegation last season. Federico Giunti was sacked and the club decided to promote U16 manager Abate.
Abate, who made over 300 appearances for Milan as a player, has many innovative ideas and managed to take the U16 side to the Scudetto final. As a result, there’s now also a buzz around the Primavera side as the Rossoneri have many talented players.
The season will begin on Saturday and Milan will face Frosinone in the first round. Kick-off is scheduled for 11:00 CEST and it will be streamed on SportItalia for those living in Italy. Of course, we will keep you updated on the game as well.
