AC Milan captain Alessio Romagnoli has declared that the team are ‘with Marco Giampaolo until the death’ after Sunday’s defeat to Fiorentina.
It was another night to forget for the Rossoneri on Sunday as they were comfortably beaten by former boss Vincenzo Montella and Fiorentina.
Milan’s crisis deepened thanks to Erick Pulgar’s penalty plus goals from Gaetano Castrovilli and Franck Ribery, with Rafael Leao getting a late consolation.
It represents a fourth defeat in six to open the season for Milan, something which has only happened twice in the club’s history and not since 1938.
Our correspondent Vito Angele also confirmed to us that Giampaolo’s position is under threat, with three possible temporary solutions being considered.
Alessio Romagnoli though is not thinking about that, and instead pledged to work hard and turn things around under the current coach.
“In these cases there is little to say, the only thing you need is to stay together to solve problems,” he said, as per Calciomercato.com.
“It’s clear that we need to improve, but the group should never give up. Today we were not a team, it seemed that everyone was playing for his cabbages, and the first difficulty is that we were disunited.
“I do not know why we’ll talk about in the week. the fault is only ours, we take on all the responsibilities.
“Giampaolo? We are with the coach until death, we must work in silence and make a team all together.”
