AC Milan bowed out of the Coppa Italia at the quarter-final stage last night, losing 2-1 against Atalanta at San Siro in what was a very disappointing evening.
Today’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews) has their player ratings from the game and the highest rating given out was a 6 out of 10, which went to Mike Maignan, Davide Calabria, Jan-Carlo Simic, Matteo Gabbia, Theo Hernandez, Rafael Leao plus to substitutes Simon Kjaer and Filippo Terracciano.
Yunus Musah, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Olivier Giroud and Yacine Adli were each given a score of 5.5, while Tijjani Reijnders and Christian Pulisic got a 5 for unusually anonymous performances.
The lowest rating (4.5) instead went to two players who have impressed lately: Alex Jimenez and Luka Jovic. The former started well, but then ran into difficulty and also gave away the penalty for the winner (though it was controversial), while the Serbian never got into the game.
It was yet another bad result that came after a good run following the last defeat, which ironically was also against Atalanta.
Milan fans booed the team profusely after the game, knowing that a realistic trophy target had slipped away, and the writing might well be on the wall for Stefano Pioli now.
