The situation goes from bad to worse for AC Milan and coach Gennaro Gattuso after another defeat following the one in the derby.
Trust and time for Gennaro Gattuso. No post-derby reaction as many expected. Rather, AC Milan disappoints again and call into question qualification for the next stage of Europa League. The air now becomes more tense and heavy.
As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport on newsstands today, at 22:30 yesterday, the Rossoneri coach was still at San Siro to analyze the blow with his staff. Leonardo and Paolo Maldini left a little earlier but not before a head-to-head meeting with the coach. The dissatisfaction in the face of the ownership was clearly evident.
At one point, reports the newspaper, the disappointment was so much that it was even considered the immediate change of the coach. Then, calmly, common sense and willingness to continue together and find the solution to this problem prevailed. The management is backing the coach, sending a message signed by Paolo Scaroni and Leo: “Gattuso is not in doubt. The bench is absolutely not in danger and there are no ultimatums“.
However in reality it is the last chance for Gattuso. In case of a further misstep on Sunday against Sampdoria Rino is sure to get sacked. There are two tracks for the future: the most expensive one that leads to Antonio Conte, or the more economic and credible one linked to Roberto Donadoni. Three days, therefore, to save the Devil or unleash the latest Rossoneri earthquake.
