Cagliari-Milan is approaching fastly, on Sunday the Rossoneri will be on stage in Sardinia for a match that is anything but easy, but has to be won at any cost. Gennaro Gattuso, at Milanello, works in the hope of finding the right formula for his Milan and yesterday tried Andrè Silva at the center of the attack. An important signal sent by the technician to the Portuguese player, who in Serie A only started in four occasions, the last time was on November 26th in Milan-Torino. The truth, however, writes “Corriere dello Sport” on sale this morning, is that at this time none of the three central attackers can guarantee goals and continuity to the Rossoneri and that’s why Gattuso would try to shuffle the cards.
Andrè Silva, underlines the “CorSport”, in the league is still out of goals, Kalinic has not scored for several weeks and seems to have an hard time with the Rossoneri fans, who expected much more from him while Cutrone, after the excellent performance with goal in the derby of Coppa Italia on December 27th, disappointed not only against Fiorentina, but also against Crotone in the last two league games. For this reason, writes “Corriere dello Sport”: “The feeling is that the hierarchies are again zeroed”.
The real problem, outlines Gennaro Gattuso in an interview, is that Milan is missing a real goal machine since the times of Pippo Inzaghi. He was determinated, he fought on every single ball without giving up to the opponents. Inzaghi played at Milan for 11 years, playing 300 games, scoring 126 goals and winning 9 trophies. After him, many attackers came to Milan to find some of his fortune, but no one of them has been able to do it. They all stayed for a short time at Milan, many left because they couldn’t find space in the team, others left due to managers’ decisions.
At the moment we have 3 willings strikers ready to play, Cutrone and Andrè Silva that have a lot to learn yet and Kalinic, who has to find his original fitness. They are in the managers’ hands, and they need us to support them even when they fall.
