Milan Owner Congratulates Team for Display Versus Genoa

Milan bounced back in spectacular fashion after getting dismantled by Inter in the Derby. They have won four games on the trot in Serie A, against Verona, Cagliari, Lazio, and Genoa. They built a two-point lead over their crosstown rivals.

Owner Gerry Cardinale lauded the squad and the coach’s resiliency to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“The season has just started, but the guys keep consolidating themselves as a team. I’m proud of the character and the grit they showed on the pitch versus Genoa. That’s the stuff champions are made of.”

The patron reportedly texted Stefano Pioli to congratulate him on the victory and his fourth anniversary on the Milan bench. The Rossoneri have leaned on the group to weather a few absences. The performances of Yunus Musah and Yacine Adli testify as such.

While the Derby drubbing could have rocked most sides, they reacted appropriately. They have conceded just once in six fixtures considering the two goalless draws in the Champions League against Newcastle United and Borussia Dortmund.

The gaffer has been flexible tactically, moving on from 4-3-3 to deploy 4-2-4 or 4-2-3-1 in situations where they needed to score. Moreover, they haven’t dropped any points against the minnows. They are the only title contender to achieve that.

Our Take on Milan

It’s early but what happened against Genoa surely felt a lot like the random stuff that only occurs in Scudetto-winning campaigns.
