Suso reveals the key reason he believes Giampaolo failed as Milan head coach

By Oliver Fisher -

Suso has revealed why things did not go well for Marco Giampaolo during his brief stint as head coach of AC Milan earlier this season.

Giampaolo was hired by the Rossoneri before the start of the current campaign following Gennaro Gattuso’s departure, but his adventure ended after just seven games in charge.

He was replaced by Stefano Pioli who now faces his own uncertain future, however the former Sampdoria boss is still under contract with Milan until 3 June 2021 having not found work elsewhere, despite links with Udinese.

Speaking to Sky Italia, Suso discussed his love for the club and how close he was to joining rivals Inter, and he also reserved a word for his former boss Giampaolo.

“I always try to learn something, Giampaolo, from the point of view of theory, saw me as a 10,” he said (via MilanNews).

“The problem is that we played all summer in one way, then against Cesena [in a friendly] it did not go well, as it didn’t at Udinese, and we changed form. When you start to change like this it is never positive.”

Interestingly, Giampaolo’s brother believes that Milan are to blame for his failure as they did not build him a suitable team.
