Tenth place in the table after eight games, that’s not even close to what Milan fans were expecting, seeing their club sign one player after another during the summer transfer window.
Their fourth defeat, this time to city rivals Inter, who have been having an awesome season so far, put Vincenzo Montella in an even tougher position; or maybe not, judging by what AC Milan chief executive Marco Fassone told the club’s TV channel after the 3-2 defeat last weekend.
We certainly go along with Vincenzo. When we are reconstructing our club, we need to give time and tools. Now we see the first positive signs. Montella will absolutely have the time to continue working
Fassone said, leaving little doubt about the club’s intentions, regarding the person who is leading the team from the bench.
Derbies are always an amazing thing. This time it turned badly for us and they celebrated with their fans. The next time, I am convinced it will be nice for our fans. The second half seemed like a completely different game and, with quality and attitude, we closed Inter in their half of the field
the Milan executive also said, adding
tenth in the table is not a position for Milan and we have to roll our sleeves up, but we have received good indications.
