By Euan Burns -

Both Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Geoffrey Moncada were seen at Milanello watching the final training session before AC Milan head down to Rome for the Europa League quarter-final second leg.

The Rossoneri are facing AS Roma in the Europa League and have a 1-0 deficit to overturn after. disappointing performance in the first leg of the tie at San Siro where Gianluca Mancini scored the only goal.

As reported by Sky, Milan were training at Milanello this morning and there were conversations between the under-pressure Stefano Pioli, and Ibrahimovic and Moncada.

With this game being followed by a Derby della Madonnina in which Inter can win the Serie A title with a victory, Pioli is facing a massive five days that could decide whether he is coach next season or not.

As for what training showed, Simon Kjaer was not with the team and looks unlikely to play any part against Roma, and the same can be said for Pierre Kalulu.

The positive news was that Tommaso Pobega was on the grass, so he could potentially make the bench.

At the moment, Matteo Gabbia is expected to start over Malick Thiaw, and Fikayo Tomori is back from suspension so he should start in Rome.

    1. If your job was on the line, would you start a relatively untested 18yr old in your defense?

      secondly, assuming every single 18yr old defender in the world is comparable to Cubarsi is a stupid thing to do. It’s certainly not that common to have that much poise for a 17yr old and there are few historical cases of players that young playing in big games, especially for a defender.

      thirdly, Barca’s youth system is stratospherically better than Milan’s. I don’t know the numbers but they probably spend more than 10x what Milan does on the youth sector. (Milan is trying to catch up, but they are light years behind talentwise and have no money)

  1. Oh no 😯. Look at what we’ve done guys. Article comes out that directors are not as present at Milanello a last year…and boom… we’ve forced Ibra to show up! 🤭They must be reading the articles 😂😂
