Lost In Derby Della Madonnina, AC Milan Officials Still Support Montella
AC Milan chief executive Marco Fassone gave his support to head coach Vincenzo Montella despite his side’s 3-2 defeat at Derby della Madonnina.
Internazionale striker Mauro Icardi scored three goals against AC Milan, which put Montella’s side into a painful defeat in the prestigious match.
A brilliant goal from long range by Suso and Samir Handanovic’s own goal makes Milan have a good chance to earn points in the game against Inter Milan. But the referee’s decision to award the Nerazzurri a penalty after Ricardo Rodriguez blocked Danilo D’Ambrosio, causing the Rossoneri to lose the game.
Despite a lot of funds transfered last summer, Milan have now lost four defeats and four wins from eight Serie A games so far this season and this week’s report says that former Lazio coach Vladimir Petkovic has an opportunity to replace Montella in AC Milan.
Even so, Fassone is very confident with his support for the 43-year-old coach when speaking to Milan TV after Sunday’s game.
“We will definitely join Vincenzo. When we reconstruct our club, we need to give time and means. Now we see the first positive sign. Montella really has time to continue working, “he said.
Fassone added: “The derby match is always a wonderful thing. This time the result is bad for us and they celebrate with their fans. In the next game, I’m sure the result will be fun for our fans. The second half seemed to be a completely different game and, with quality and attitude, we locked Inter up in their half field. ”
“Our current position is not an ideal position for Milan and we have to roll our sleeves but we get a good indication,” he concluded.
After Derby della Madonnina, Milan will host AEK Athens in the Europa League and are determined to break three consecutive defeats in Serie A against Genoa at the San Siro next week. (Source: Four Four Two, Milan TV)
