Giampaolo: “I always think about football, even at the dinner table”

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Marco Giampaolo has revealed that he is ‘always’ thinking about football, even during meal times.

Giampaolo joined the Rossoneri earlier in the summer having left his role at Sampdoria to move to San Siro.

He replaced Gennaro Gattuso, who resigned as Milan boss at the end of last season after failing to guide the club to a top four finish.

After mixed preseason results, Milan have won two of their first three games to start the season, although the campaign did start with a dismal 1-0 defeat to Udinese.

The responses came after that though; the first a narrow 1-0 win over Brescia and most recently a victory by the same scoreline in Verona which sets the stage nicely for Saturday’s Derby della Madonnina against Inter.

Giampaolo, who is regarded as one of the most intense tactical minds in Italian football, has revealed his passion for the game.

“Football is always present in my day, he told DAZN, as per Calciomercato.com.

“I sometimes write patterns on the tablecloths for lunch or dinner.”

Meanwhile, Milan director Zvonomir Boban recently insisted that the club are currently in the middle of a process, and branded Gianluigi Donnarumma as the club’s leader.
