AC Milan sent a strong signal to those teams breathing down their neck with a win over Roma at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday, a report claims.
Milan returned to winning ways at the best possible time as they beat their fellow top four challengers. It was a penalty that gave Milan the lead, but there were once again no arguments as Davide Calabria was stamped on, with Franck Kessie despatching from the spot.
Jordan Veretout equalised just after with a thumping finish from inside the box to level proceedings, but Ante Rebic restored Milan’s lead with an excellent low driven finish inside the far post after a turn to get away from his man.
According to this morning’s edition of il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews), Milan sent a strong signal after a difficult period with the win against Roma, but the season is long and consistency is needed.
From now until May it will be a non-stop sprint, which Pioli will have to face in full emergency. Ante Rebic will be available tomorrow, but Hakan Calhanoglu will miss at least two games (Ibrahimovic more), and since Mandzukic too will not return for ten days, it is clear that the attack has to be reinvented.
