Sunday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport has highlighted two key positives from Saturday’s boring 0-0 draw against Cesena.
Milan failed to impress in their final test of preseason fixture as they were held by Serie C side Cesena.
The Rossoneri were looking for a confidence booster ahead of the opening game of the season in Udinese but they struggled to break down their resilient hosts.
La Gazzetta dello Sport meanwhile cite two Milan players who showed promising signs in the game at the Manuzzi.
Gianluigi Donnarumma is the first player mentioned, and the 20-year-old looked solid throughout the fixture, including a late save on Butic to save the team from an embarrassing defeat.
Hakan Calhanoglu is also named for his performance as a regista, where he played much better than when he was on the left side of the midfield three.
It could be an ‘interesting solution’ moving forward, the paper concludes.
