Report: Three days off for Milan squad after Genoa; ‘reflection’ on Giampaolo planned

By Oliver Fisher -

The AC Milan squad will be given three days off following Saturday night’s game in Genoa, according to a report.

The Rossoneri go into Saturday’s game at the Marassihaving lost four of their first six league games to start the season for only the third time in the club’s history, and the first time since 1938.

The pressure is building on head coach Marco Giampaolo from both the fans and the media, despite it being so early in his tenure.

There are even widespread reports that a comfortable defeat against the Grifone could be enough to get him sacked, especially with the international break beckoning.

As reported by Tuttosport (via Calciomercato.com), the plan is for the Milan squad to have three days off after the match against Genoa, as agreed by those at the club.

That will be ‘the best time to thoroughly analyse the situation and position of Marco Giampaolo’, the report adds, suggesting that a decision will be made on his future in that period.

Meanwhile, some players – such as Alessio Romagnoli and Gianluigi Donnarumma – will be preparing to jet off for international duty.
