Milan Boss Told Where to Improve Amid Rough Patch

Milan icon Arigo Sacchi has urged Stefano Pioli to establish better communication with his side in the midst of Rossoneri’s rough patch. Only a week ago, it was all rosy from the Lombard fans’ perspective, only to see their side collapse twice in four years. 

First, Malick Thiaw’s reckless challenge, which earned him a red card, set the tone for Juventus’ 1-0 win at the San Siro last weekend. Only four days later, Milan, seemingly shaken by relinquishing a five-game unbeaten run against Bianconeri in Serie A, slumped to an embarrassing 3-0 defeat at Paris Saint-Germain in midweek Champions League action. 

The wheels have fallen off ahead of their upcoming trip to the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona to encounter Napoli in a heavyweight league contest, with Sacchi encouraging the Milan boss to explain his thoughts to his players plainly. 

When they don’t play collectively, that is, when they’re not a team, Milan loses. Lately, every now and then, this has happened,” Sachi said, as quoted by PianetaMilan. “I think of the defeats against Juve and against PSG, but also the previous one against Inter. Something needs to be corrected.”

With Milan losing all three high-profile games this season, Sachi couldn’t be more right. 

The coach is always responsible, he knows this too. The point is that Pioli must give clarity to what he wants to do. You need to explain clearly to the players how they should be on the pitch, how they should move,” the former Milan coach stated.
