Former AC Milan midfielder Dejan Savicevic believes that the Rossoneri players are the ones to blame over the last few years rather than a persistent change in management.
The club have been plagued by a lack of continuity in recent years having been through a number of head coach since Max Allegri’s departure, including the likes of Clarence Seedorf, Pippo Inzaghi, Sinisa Mihajovlic, Vincenzo Montella, Gennaro Gattuso, Marco Giampaolo and now Stefano Pioli.
There are widespread rumours in the media that Ralf Rangnick could be the next man to take a spot on the bench for Milan, something the German commented on earlier, but for now it seems the uncertainty is set to continue.
Savicevic spoke to Mauro Suma of Milan TV and recalled his best moments spent at Milan and beyond.
In fact, ‘il Genio’ also had the opportunity to have his say on the Milan of today and on why, according to him, things are not going well.
“At this moment Inter are better than us. We hope to recover. To get older you need to buy good players,” he said (via MilanLive).
“Many coaches have changed, from Mihajlovic to Inzaghi, but it’s not their fault, but whoever goes on the pitch. You can change as many coaches as you want, but it’s not all their fault.
“At the time we had Gullit, Van Basten, Rui Costa, Shevchenko, Seedorf, Nesta. Now Milan have bought players and nobody has scored 15-20 or has been the leader.”
Savicevic was also asked for his opinion on Luka Jovic, who according to various outlets is the Rossoneri’s number one target for the forward department this summer.
“I don’t know him well. I saw a game but not well. So far at Real Madrid, [he has done] little. I knew him better when he was 17 and he was promising, then he did not do well at Benfica, better on loan in Germany. I can’t judge him,” he said.
