AC Milan registered their fourth league defeat of the season on Saturday evening, conceding three goals against Atalanta. The Rossoneri now find themselves nine points behind Inter, and yet the management has remained silent.
Including the Champions League, Milan have lost six games already this season and the performances have simply not been good enough. The Rossoneri fans have grown tired especially of Stefano Pioli, who has delivered some tone-deaf quotes in recent weeks.
The problem, as Calciomercato.com highlights, is that the manager is the only one who has spoken about the crisis. Apart from perhaps Paolo Scaroni, the Milan management has remained silent, confirming the manager’s position indirectly via whispers to the media.
After over €120m spent in the summer, with a mercato financed mainly by the sale of Sandro Tonali, the management has been awfully silent about the future of this project and the current struggles. A silence, as the report continues, that smacks of acceptance.
Inter are nine points ahead in the standings and the Champions League adventure could end on Wednesday. In mid-December, this simply cannot be the case for a club like Milan, which in recent years was carried publicly by the face of Paolo Maldini.
Compared to Maldini, this management prefers silence, relying on the methods in place without making too much of a fuss. The question is if this can continue, with Pioli’s statements becoming more and more questionable.
