AC Milan head coach Siniša Mihajlović has warned “the worst is yet to come” for the Rossoneri after watching his side “throw away” two points away at Carpi Sunday. The tie saw Milan falter into eighth in the Serie A table behind Atalanta who is in seventh place. AC Milan currently are nine points behind league leaders and city rivals Internazionale di Milano.
There was one positive to Siniša Mihajlovic’s side and that was the young 16-year-old Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma who notched his third clean sheet in Serie A. Gianluigi also earned his seventh start as goalkeeper for the Rossoneri. Gigi Donnarumma remains to be the main highlight to AC Milan’s season so far and he also perhaps looks like the new goalkeeper for the Azzurri.
Mihajlović was also lamenting of a “bad atmosphere” within the club that also threatens to ruin il Diavolo‘s season. The former Sampdoria manager has made it certain that he will not give up yet. Mihajlović refuses to abandon the ambitions of getting AC Milan back into the Champions League. The Serbian manager also mentioned “we’ve got to become more nastier and more creative in front of goal.”
Now unto the point where Milan really struggles, scoring goals. Siniša has a point that the Milanese has to become more relentless in front of goal. The current leading goal scorer for AC Milan is the newcomer from Sevilla, Carlos Bacca. The 29-year-old Colombian hasn’t really impressed but also hasn’t been as completely underwhelming as some other attacking players on Milan. Alessio Cerci repeatedly starts for AC Milan and has a one word description to his game, underwhelming.
The Rossoneri will entertain Hellas Verona this coming Sunday, which are just on par with the newly promoted Carpi. AC Milan will also travel to Sampdoria for the Coppa Italia before they travel to Frosinone. Il Diavolo will enter the New Year hosting Bologna on the sixth of January.
AC Milan will need to shape up by then since they will be traveling to Roma and after entering the highflying Fiorentina.
