AC Milan bounced back with a much-needed win against Frosinone on Saturday evening, following the defeat to Borussia Dortmund earlier in the week. The San Siro silence, however, is still telling as highlighted by Andrea Longoni.
Before kick-off, there was almost an eerie mood at San Siro. The stadium is usually cooking then but this time out, there wasn’t just cold weather but also a ‘cold mood’. A good indicator of where Milan are currently, as Andrea Longoni highlighted for MilanNews.
“The atmosphere at San Siro makes us reflect, at times surreal, with a chill not only due to the temperature but also and above all due to the state of mind of those present in the stands.
“For a long time, we had hardly felt a detachment, accustomed to the incredible enthusiasm of the last few years. A clear sign of a delicate moment, difficult to experience for those who have Milan in their hearts: a silence that in some way spoke,” he wrote.
Once Milan broke the deadlock through Luka Jovic, the fans truly came alive again and the outcome of the evening was positive. Then again, it should be stated that Curva Sud sang from the first to the last minute, always offering their support to the team.
It’s only natural, however, that everyone isn’t chanting and jumping around when the team is struggling to perform. Stefano Pioli will be hoping that yesterday’s win was the turning point they needed to find that crucial consistency in the coming weeks.
