CM: Pioli’s team fail their exam against Salernitana – lack of leadership critically exposed

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan were held to a draw by Salernitana but ultimately gained a point on Inter due to their loss against Sassuolo, but there are alarm bells about the Rossoneri’s performance.

Calciomercato.com reports how it was a top versus bottom clash in Campania and Pioli’s team failed the exam, losing an opportunity to take a sizeable leap when considering the slip-up from their city rivals. Individual mistakes – especially by Maignan and Tomori – were decisive in the end and they influenced the final result.

A team that wants to win the Scudetto for the first time since 2011 cannot drop points in certain matches and this is one of them, and the report adds how it might just highlight one of the big problems in the squad.

Milan have a core made up of talented young players who apply themselves and follow Pioli’s instructions to the letter, but among it there are very few leaders to keep concentration high. Without Kjaer and Ibrahimovic who are out due to injury, Milan are sorely lacking some calming but also motivation influence.

Tonali’s growth in terms of personality has been exponential but he struggled on Saturday, and there are those who should do more like Romagnoli, Calabria and Theo Hernandez.

  1. That’s because Milan is only club in the entire world that has a captain that is also a substitute. With all due respect to Romagnoli, he is not the captain, he hasn’t been for a long time.

    Armband needs to go to a starter, Calabria, Theo or Tonali.

  2. Wow the amount of crying against this gets worse everyday.

    We just played one of the biggest derbies in the world and won, then thrashed Lazio in the coppa. But still its not good enough for some people cuz the team had a bad day.

    Embarrassing to be a milan fan sometimes when i read articles or comments in here.

    Forza Milan!!!

      1. Thrashed us? Why did we win then?
        They had less possesion than us, less passes, two more shots on goal than us, one goal less scored than us and three points less than we got from the match, but they thrashed us right?

        Jesus the intelligence of fans are really really low on this site..
