CM: Giampaolo cannot afford more mistakes; next three games decisive

By Oliver Fisher -

The pressure surrounding AC Milan head coach Marco Giampaolo is growing in the media despite words of reassurance from the club.

The Rossoneri have not had an ideal start to the season despite a favourable schedule; losing two of their opening four Serie A games and scoring just one goal from open play.

On Monday, our correspondent Vito Angele told us that there is total confidence in Giampaolo from the Milan hierarchy for now, but that the next couple of games could be key.

Further disappointing results would mean losing ground in the Champions League race already, something that Elliott would not accept.

Now, Calciomercato.com have offered their take on the situation and it is similar: they believe the games against Torino, Fiorentina and Genoa are fundamental for Giampaolo’s future.

The decision to play Lucas Biglia and not Ismael Bennacer confused the leadership, the report adds, and on Thursday the club expect a totally different Milan than we have seen so far.
