Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s contract with Milan will end once the season is finished. What he will do next remains uncertain as Zlatan apparently had a heated discussion with CEO Ivan Gazidis over his running of the club last week. With the big Swede possibly leaving, here are four names that Milan could be looking at to replace him at the San Siro.
Milan’s psychodrama continued today at the Stadio Olimpico as the Rossoneri left three more points on the road losing 1-2 to Roma. Stefano Pioli’s side’s awful defending offered Edin Dzeko and Nicoló Zaniolo two easy chances to make it to the scorecard, frustrating Theo Hernandez’s equalizer. Roma thus lifted themselves up to the 5th place in the table.
The Azzurri have learned to suffer. It was a battle with no quarter on Tuesday at the Allianz Stadium in Turin, where Italy knocked down Bosnia with goals by Lorenzo Insigne and Marco Verratti, coming from behind in the second half to neutralize Edin Dzeko’s opener. Roberto Mancini’s boys caught the fourth win in four Euro 2020 qualification games.
Finally! We just couldn’t wait anymore. For almost two months, we felt lonely, and deprived of the most thrilling pleasure in a Sunday afternoon: Calcio. But now it’s back, in its most exquisite form of the Italian Serie A. And so, directly from the Temple where supporters’ dreams come true, here is our Top 5 of the best goals scored in this opening round of Serie A 2018-19.
A lone goal by Edin Dzeko put Roma past Shakthar Donetsk and booked them a ticket to the Champions League quarterfinals, a stage the Giallorossi have not seen in the last 10 years. The 2-2 aggregate score promoted Eusebio Di Francesco’s side on away goals. Roma did their homework and beat a weaker club on paper, but overcoming the Ukrainians was not a stroll in the part for the red-and-yellows.
