Ruud Gullit Gives Verdict on Rollercoaster Milan Season

Ex-Milan icon Ruud Gullit has given his verdict on the Rossoneri’s season so far, as the reigning Italian champions gradually pick themselves after a torrid run of seven winless matches across all competitions.

The club has encountered a tough restart to the season following the World Cup break, but narrow back-to-back wins against Torino, Tottenham Hotspur and Monza might indicate a shift in momentum.

“How do I judge it so far? Difficult. They are fighting and suffering. Up until now, not everything has been as easy as last year. Maybe because in 2021/22 every what went right, has gone wrong this time,” he said to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews).

Gullit believes it is had to predict anything in football, especially on the continental front following the 1-0 victory against Antonio Conte’s Spurs in the first leg at San Siro.

“In this first part of the season things have been more difficult than what everyone expected, but in football you never know: in the Champions League they won the first leg of the round of 16 against Tottenham. Let’s see how it ends.”

Milan are on par with Roma at 44 points, but find themselves sandwiched between Inter and Lazio at either end. They face Atalanta next at home, in what is bound to be a crucial encounter to guard their top-four spot.
