The Champions challenge is wonderful Ambrosini

first_imgThe former AC Milan captain has spoken about the chances his club has in Italy and the Champions League race.Massimo Ambrosini played for AC Milan from 1995 to 2013, and he’s one of the most cherished footballers at the club.Now, he took his time to speak about his former team chances in the league, and also the UEFA Champions League race.“Many teams are in the running for the Champions League,” he was quoted by Calcio Mercato.“The challenge is wonderful, a truly compelling campaign.”“After Inter’s defeat against Bologna, they are now also fully involved in this brawl,” he explained.“And if they do not change pace and do not recharge the batteries, they risk being overtaken by Milan and other teams.”“But Inter seems structurally strong, with an experienced coach. They can react,” he said.“[Gennaro] Gattuso? I really like him, he is doing an extraordinary job.”“I really do not understand what more can be asked for. Awareness and above all he has given the team a soul.”Cristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“We need to evaluate the actions of the coach in relation to the expectations of the club and he is fully respecting them,” he continued.“Besides the results, he was also asked to improve the players, it seems to me that he has succeeded.”“An example? I would say [Tiemoue] Bakayoko, his growth compared to the difficulties at the beginning of the season is absolutely evident,” he commented.“Bakayoko has become fundamental but let’s not forget that Biglia was also before he got injured.”“Rino will have to find the best solution because I do not think that he can remove the Frenchman now,” Ambrosini opined.“One hypothesis could be that of advancing the position of Paqueta because he has the technical characteristics to do succeed. But let’s let Gattuso work, he sees the players every day.”#OnThisDayMaldini finds an unmarked Boban with a sublime ball, Zvone fires it low to open the scoring 👏🏻Palla al bacio di Maldini per Boban: Zorro controlla e calcia per il vantaggio rossonero 👏🏻 pic.twitter.com/hVsbxj0MuQ— AC Milan (@acmilan) February 6, 2019last_img read more
