Gallery: ‘Pioli betrayed’, ‘Milan shock’ – Today’s front pages in Italy

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan had a night to forget against Monza at the U-Power Stadium as they conceded twice in added time to render their second half fightback all for nothing.

The nicest thing to say from a Milan perspective would be that it was an entertaining game as Monza led by two goals at half-time then Luka Jovic was sent off, before the Rossoneri roared back and then were stung again right at the end through goals from Bondo and Colombo.

Below are how the front pages of this morning’s newspapers in Italy look…

La Gazzetta dello Sport: “Milan crumble. They concede 4 goals, no overtake of Juve. Pioli betrayed by squad rotation and Jovic (sent off). In Monza they mount a comeback and then lose in stoppage time.”

Corriere dello Sport: “Max, thank Galliani. Monza beat Milan (4-2) and Juve remain second. Pessina and Dany Mota put Palladino 2-0 up. Jovic sent off in the 53rd, Giroud and Pulisic comeback. Bondo (assist from Maldini Junior) and Colombo decisive. Pioli had not lost in the league since December 9.”

Tuttosport: “Milan shock. Comeback when down to 10, then collapse. Incredible Monza.”

  1. Pioli should have done the rotation on Thursday and not against Monza but the reason we lost this game is because of Thiaw and Jovic and everyone on this forum wanted those 2 playing so not sure why everyone is whining. All the other players had been terrible but again Monza didn’t create any chances until the 2 mistakes. So you can’t blame Pioli for putting Thiaw for Kjaer. Would Pioli had played Kjaer and we lost everyone would have blamed Pioli. Not sure what Milan fans.

    1. In the end of 2023 i was against Pioli. But now i want that we keep him. The Team looked good with the injured players coming Back. We cant blame him yesterday for individual player mistakes. Leao and Pulisic were tired After the Last Games. Lets look how the Season go…
