Adriano Galliani, one of the chief decision makers at AC Milan, feels the club would start dominating the Italian first flight again in near future.
The Rossoneri have not played consistent Football for quite a while. The board has tried everything to get the team back on track, but, none of the efforts has paid off.
There were high hopes with Filippo Inzaghi as manager. But, he has not had that much of an affect either.
Milan’s main problem has been their inability to build on a win. They just don’t seem to be able to carry the winning momentum on.
After winning a game or two, they happen to have a couple of poor games and that ruins everything.
The consistency factor is not there is the current bunch of players that the team possesses. Read the rest of this entry »
It has already been confirmed and announced to the public that Fernando Torres will be making a return to Athletic Madrid on a 2 year long loan deal and Alessio Cerci is expected to join Ac.Milan as part of the deal but the coach of Ac.Milan, Filippo Inzaghi has now announced that Alessio Cerci is not the only player that he wants to sign during the winter transfer window as he has more players which he has a desire to add to his team.
Rumors are linking Ac.Milan to a move with Fiorentina’s Manuel Pasqual. Pasqual is a 32 years old wing-back who has a contract with Fiorentina that is reaching its end in a few months and Inzaghi is believed to be interested in adding to his team at San Siro.
Keisuke Honda is one of the players that has been standout for Ac.Milan in this season as the Japanese player has helped Ac.Milan on securing crucial points in their campaign and Honda is going to be helping Japan in the Asian Cup which leaves an empty spot in the position of Honda when he makes his trip to Asia in a few months. Inzaghi wants to sign a player that can fill in the spot of Keisuke Honda when he leaves to Asia.
As.Roma’s Mattia Destro is a young forward who has already showcased his abilities not only for As.Roma but also for his country, Italy and has turned into a promising player for the upcoming years. Filippo Inzaghi is interested in signing Mattia Destro but it will be fairly difficult to sign as he has a price tag of around €20 million, which is a steep price for Ac.Milan and in order to sign him they might have to sell some of their own players as a way to create enough funds.

The fans of AC Milan might have been getting a little impatient with the on-loan striker Fernando Torres, but, Filippo Inzaghi, the manager of the team, believes that the Spaniard would be able to get in form eventually.
Torres’ parent club Chelsea has placed him on loan to Milan for a couple of seasons.
The 30-year old has already made 8 appearances for the Rossoneri, but, has failed to shake the net more than once.
The fans want him to be dropped, but, Inzaghi, the other day, made it clear that he was willing to give Torres a bit more time to find his feet in Italy.
Talking to the reporters, Inzaghi said, “I back Fernando. We always knew he would be rusty to start with as he had not been active that much in the recent months. There is no point getting impatient. It’s about playing him as much as possible and giving him the much needed match practice. He would start striking sooner or later.”
When asked about the unhappiness of the fans after that Palermo loss, the 41-year old Italian said, “As I told you earlier, patience is needed. We were never going to be leading the table. We are an emerging unit. There would be off days, but, the important thing is that the boys were fully committed. There was no sign of recklessness.”
“If we keep trying hard, the results would go in our favour. There are positive vibes in the camp. We are all hopeful. More than half of the season is still there.”
Milan’s current position in the Italian first division table is 7th. The margin between them and the table toppers Juventus is of 9 points. All the teams have played 10 matches so far.

Pressure has increased on AC Milan manager Filippo Inzaghi in the last few weeks after his team’s winless run stretched to 3 matches after a 1-1 draw with Cesena. The club started the new season with a lot of positivity after winning the opening two matches. This even sparked suggestions of a title bid, but that soon went away after a 1-0 defeat against Juventus. They followed this match with a 2-2 draw with Empoli. Now, this 1-1 draw with Cesena has threatened not only to take the club out of the title contention, but also the race to finish in the top three.
Inzaghi was disappointed man after the match, as he felt that his team should have taken all three points for the performance and hard work they put in. As a result of this defeat, Milan are now level on points with local rivals Inter Milan with eight points on the board. Cesena managed to take the lead after just 10 minutes following a mistake from Christian Abbiati. For long periods of the match, Milan were searching for the elusive victory after Rami had equalised moments later. It did not come and Milan have now taken just two points from a possible nine in the last few weeks.
“Unfortunately we had the game in control and created a lot in the first half, but when you work so hard and don’t score in this heat you will pay eventually. We played very well in the first half, then got stretched out and it was tough to win after going down to 10 men. We probably deserved to score a second. I can’t complain about the team’s performance and their goalkeeper made some crucial saves, but we started to run out of steam when we didn’t make all that pressure count,” said Inzaghi.
