Although Milan have improved drastically in the second half of the season, thanks to the work of Stefano Pioli, this season will still go down as a failure. Once again, the Rossoneri will miss out on Champions League qualification.
The Rossoneri are currently just two points short of Napoli and Roma in fifth place, but Atalanta in fourth place are 17 points ahead. Therefore, Pioli’s men will have to focus on securing direct qualification to Europa League.
In an interview with Marca, which was published this morning, former Milan manager Max Allegri was asked about the club. He was in charge of them between 2010-2014 and won the Scudetto in his first season, while finishing 2nd and 3rd in the other two.
“When we will see Milan as a title contender again? Unfortunately, I think there is still a long way to go. Milan need a strong and continuous project. Changing the squad a lot every season does not allow you to grow,” he stated.
Ralf Rangnick is expected to become the Rossoneri’s next manager, implementing a long-term plan at the club focused on youth. Hopefully, the German will be the right man to lead Milan back to glory.
