Mediaset: Maldini and Massara spoke to Milan squad at half-time in Inter game

By Oliver Fisher -

An interesting note has emerged from AC Milan’s Supercoppa Italiana defeat against Inter last night in Saudi Arabia, according to a report.

Just like the Lecce game that took place on Saturday night, Milan dug themselves a hole in the opening 30 minutes as they found themselves two goals down, a deficit that they would ultimately be unable to recover from.

The first goal for Inter at the King Fahd Stadium came from Federico Dimarco who slotted home a square ball from Nicolo Barella, and then Edin Dzeko got the better of Sandro Tonali to double the advantage.

According to what is being reported by Mediaset (via TMW), the speech given to the team during the half-time interval did not just come from Stefano Pioli. In fact, directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara also went down to the dressing room to try and get the Rossoneri players to react in the second half.

In the end it would not have the desired impact as Milan went on to lose 3-0, with Lautaro Martinez making sure the Supercoppa would have blue and black ribbons attached with a goal late on.

    1. Replacements were signed. Not their fault coach doesn’t know how to integrate or use them.

      You can blame management for picking Origi over Muani, but you can’t blame them for Pioli’s mediocrity.

      Yes this is a combination of things, but Pioli needs to bare most of the blame. Players are injured because trainings are not adjusted for poor state of training grounds. New players are not integrated properly, young players and not developed properly. Most of them are ignored or left out under the excuse they are adjusting. Only our players need 3 years to adjust. Those are not bad players, its bad coaching.

      Bottom line, his trainings cut our squad by 1/3, and he is either failing to integrate or ignoring newcomers. So he is not the only problem, but definitely the biggest one.

        1. And to add, I think Pioli has reached his dept at Milan as a coach, cus he seems to be unable to utilize any other tactics or formation and it’s clearly what we need at the moment.

      1. I totally agree with you, the issue of not signing replacement is centred on RW, proper rotation for LW and LB. The management is reluctant to strengthen those areas.

      2. “Not their fault coach doesn’t know how to integrate or use them.”

        You mean it’s not Pioli faults that the players given to him are not world class and can’t adapt quickly with his tactics.

        You can blame Pioli if the management give him multiple world class players but the results is we’re not in top 4 or failed to proceed to UCL knockout stage.
