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.
