CorSera: Giampaolo lets down Boban and Maldini

AC Milan win against Hellas Verona but none of the new arrivals started yesterday. A decision from Giampaolo that has worried the club.

MILAN NEWS – AC Milan secured another victory this weekend. The Rossoneri grabbed a narrow win against Hellas Verona, away from San Siro, but except the three points there wasn’t much consolation for Marco Giampaolo’s side.

Despite playing against a team with ten players for more than one hour, the Rossoneri failed to make any use of it. A penalty kick transformed in goal by Krzysztof Piatek, and some great saves by Donnarumma, decided the match in Milan’s favour.

Once again the starting eleven was the same of last year. Despite the formation change to 4-3-2-1, with Paqueta and Suso both trequartistas, there was no other novelty from Giampaolo. All the six summer signings were left on the bench with Ante Rebic the only lucky one to make an appearances in the second half.

According to Corriere della Sera, Paolo Maldini and Zvonimir Boban hoped that yesterday against Verona the coach would deploy some of new purchases from the first minute but the former Sampdoria coach fielded the same Milan of last season. Even Bennacer who stared against Brescia was out of the starting eleven.

Though aware that new arrivals need some time to adopt to Giampaolo’s footballing ideas, Milan expect the new signings to make a great impact. The club invested nearly €100 million this summer to reinforce the squad and not the bench.
