AC Milan’s Players Fail to Step up Their Performance
In the Serie A match between AC Milan and Lazio, the former could not bounce back on the scoreboard as expected. The game, held at Stadio Olimpico, saw AC Milan get thrashed. Lazio was able to net as many as four goals. As per the player’s performance, Tatarusanu could not do much. He was in a better position to prevent the second goal. Also, when he was given the penalty kick, he could not turn that into a goal as well.
Calabria was the other player on whom much hope was hinged. However, this time he was also unable to perform well. He lost the battle, especially when he faced Zaccagni. As a result, he could not rule out superior attack stances of Lazio. Kalulu went up and gave Lazio a lot of space. He also could not perform well under penalty. When he saw Pedro come with the ball he could not help him along. Tomori on the other hand could not perform well since he suffered an injury, 23 minutes into the game. As a result, a substitute player was sent in. Continue reading AC Milan’s Players Fail to Step up Their Performance

REPORT: AC MILAN PREPARE OFFER TO SIGN MIRALEM PJANIC THIS SUMMER
According to a report by Spanish outlet Fichajes, AC Milan will look to secure the services of Miralem Pjanic in a loan deal in the summer transfer window. The Serie A giants are preparing an offer to prise the out-of-favour Bosnian midfielder away from Barcelona ahead of the 2022/23 season.

According to a report by Spanish outlet Fichajes, Olivier Giroud is the subject of interest from Real Madrid over a possible move in the summer transfer window. The reigning La Liga champions are hoping to pounce on the 35-year-old striker’s potentially reduced role to prise him away from AC Milan.
