Milan surprised many last season as despite having a very young squad, they overcame many difficulties and eventually finished in second place. For this upcoming campaign, the expectation is thus higher.
And rightfully so, you could argue, as Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have done well on the market so far to reinforce the team. The feeling is also positive because Stefano Pioli now has more time to work on his tactics for the team.
The 4-2-3-1 formation was the standard last season and this wasn’t always positive for the team, which the manager eventually found a solution for, just in time for the finale. Then, of course, the depth is looking better (can avoid the injury struggles).
During his presentation as the new manager of Juventus, former Milan manager Max Allegri was asked about which teams he thought were interesting during his hiatus. He mentioned the Rossoneri and their impressive progress.
“The second year without managing I followed a lot of football, the first less. I wanted to understand if I was still able to coach. The most interesting teams I have seen? Milan have grown a lot, and their young players now have more experience. They will be among the favourites, like the other big clubs. It will be a good season,” he said as cited by MilanNews.
