CorSera: Ibrahimovic offers a hand to Pioli as Milan must fix three issues

By Oliver Fisher -

The defeat against Monza on Sunday was certainly a shock to the system for AC Milan, but a single loss cannot and must not ruin the excellent run over the last two months.

As Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews) writes this morning, we therefore need an immediate reaction from Stefano Pioli’s team who admitted their responsibilities after the match, so they must raise their head to avoid falling into another crisis.

After the match against Monza, Zlatan Ibrahimovic also ‘took to the field’ to help the Milan coach and the entire squad. At the final whistle the Swede – appointed Senior Advisor of RedBird and Milan a few. months ago – went to the dressing room to boost his former teammates.

His work as a motivator will also continue in the coming days at Milanello, because he knows that a charge is needed to get back into that impressive rhythm we have seen so far in 2024.

There are three defects that the Rossoneri must try to correct quickly: first of all they must concede fewer goals because the 31 they have let in so far in Serie A are too many.

Then, the reserves must then give better responses when they are put on the field from the first minute. Finally, the six red cards in Serie A is far too many: Verona, Napoli, Lecce and Cagliari are joint-second with four reds.

  1. It’s not the single loss per se that ruined everyone’s mood. It’s the careless selection of the starters. Just when fans started getting over blaming Pioli for the injuries and the early exits from the CL & the cup he makes a mistake like this…Unbelievable. He doesn’t even have to go far or reinvent the wheel. He should have taken a look at how Inter rotates…

    1. Hmm – I think it was K who said it perfectly a few posts back- virtually every change Pioli made sense on paper. Were you complaining that Thiaw started over Kaejer? Or Giroud finally got a rest? Or Leao was benched when he was complaining of not being 100%? And maybe we underestimated them but it was Monza – not freaking Man City.

  2. This is ridiculous.

    Motivation isn’t going to change the simple fact that you can’t put one elite group of players who have barely played and are lacking in match sharpness, up against another group of elite athletes who have match sharpness, and tell the former group (implicitly by your selections) that they can take their foot off the pedal.

    1. Monza have hardly been Elite all season. Seriously?

      Again, I maintain that without the Jovic self-implosion, we would have left Monza with all the points. I mean we almost mounted a comeback with a man down.

      I’m not worried about this loss. And one loss doens’t detract anything from the progress so far.

  3. These articles are embarrassing.

    Zlatan is going to do some Zlatan things and will fix everything.

    Motivation works for about 10 minutes during a game. Usually the first 10 minutes of the first half. Some times during the first 10 minutes of the second half.
