AC Milan currently have another key problem besides which formation to play which is feeding into their issues, according to one newspaper.
The Rossoneri were dismal in their Serie A season opener in Udine on Sunday night, failing to register a single shot on target.
They were beaten 1-0 as Udinese debutant Rodrigo Becao rose highest from a corner to head his side into the lead, and in truth Milan never looked like fashioning a clear opportunity.
The showing was so bad that Giampaolo told Sky Italia after the game (via Football Italia) that he is considering scrapping the 4-3-1-2 in favour of a 4-3-3.
However, La Gazzetta dello Sport – as cited by MilanNews.it – believe that the problems run deeper than just the formation and the positions of individual players.
The paper claims that part of Milan’s problem is that they are a very young team and there are ‘no leaders able to take the situation in hand’ when the matches demand it.
