MN: Milan toothless against Sassuolo – all the limitations of the attacking department re-emerge

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s struggles at both ends of the pitch appeared to be clearly on display during last night’s defeat against Sassuolo, a report claims.

As MilanNews writes, Milan looked somewhat toothless up front in the loss as Rafael Leao disappointed again, Ante Rebic got lost and Mario Mandzukic was unable to make an impact. Hakan Calhanoglu’s prowess aside, Milan struggled so much and all the limitations of the attacking department emerged again.

The team committed two mistakes in defence that cost a goal, and the midfield certainly did not shine for solidity and balance especially in the last 15 minutes, but the real problem of this Milan is in attack. Without Ibrahimovic – and with Mandzukic not yet in top form – the Rossoneri are struggling to be clinical in the area.

With the Swede in doubt for the game against Lazio and some serious deficiencies that need sorting, it seems Milan have entered a sort of crisis at a difficult stage of the season, one in which they cannot afford to make mistakes.

    Leao can be loaned for 1 – 2 seasons to get more experiences. Ibra, Mandzukic strikers. Prepare a new growing striker.
    Rebic & Hauge for the left.
    Rebic can be third choice striker.
    Saelemaekers on the right. Need to find another good AMR.
    Find a “Brazilian Kaka” typical second striker who has good dribbling, shot, and passing skill, an experienced one, not a young player. If Calhanoglu leave, 1 growing player and 1 young player must be added as a backup.
    DMC is good enough with 3 Milan’s. If Meite leave, a new growing player has to be added, Tommaso Pobega?
    Find left defensive player as a backup for Theo, from Primavera.
    Central Defenders actually quite good enough with Kjaer, Tomori, Gabbia & Kalulu. But it is a need to add one CD who has leadership as a backup for Kjaer.
    DR is Calabria’s, with Kalulu as backup.
    Add one Primavera DR to first team.
    If Gigio leave Milan, find a new GK to accompany Tatarusanu & Jungdal keep the net.
