Serie A giants Inter Milan have reportedly given Jose Mourinho and his Manchester United team a deadline if they seriously want to go ahead with the deal for winger Ivan Perisic. The Croatian is a key player for Inter but he seems to have taken interest in United’s inquiry into him.
Inter want the Red Devils to wrap up the deal over the weekend so by July 1 it would be done, reports claim. For the sake of Financial Fair Play, the club needs £26 million to balance its books. They have given United the deadline to move ahead with the deal as Old Trafford seemed to have slowed down the deal. Continue reading INTER MILAN GIVE MAN UNITED DEADLINE
Retired AC Milan goal keeper, Christian Abbiati has blasted the poor attitude of some AC Milan players.
The player retired from active football at the ripe age of 38. The goal stopper started his career at Italian club Corsico before the move to Calcio Monza. He had a loan spree before eventually joining Milan.
Abbiati joined Milan from Monza in 1998, and ended his 18-year association with the club when he decided to retire at the conclusion of this season. Milan endured another inconsistent campaign, as Cristian Brocchi guided the club to a seventh place finish following the sacking of Sinisa Mihajlovic in April.
The Coppa Italia failed to save their season as they lost to Juventus 1-0 after extra-time in Saturday’s final, and Abbiati has subsequently been scathing of some of his colleagues for their conduct throughout the 2015/2016 season. Though the goal keeper handled most of the games at the Coppa Italia, the first choice handled the Serie A games. Abbiati told Gazzette dello Sport:
“There are four or five players that didn’t do what was asked of them, and I’m not talking about making mistakes on the field. Continue reading FORMER AC MILAN GOAL KEEPER BLAST THE ATTITUDE OF THE PLAYERS
Inter Milan’s coach Walter Mazzarri has received the dreaded vote of confidence from the president after a poor run of results has seen the club slip out of contention for the top three. Only the top three teams in the Italian league qualify for the Champions League next season. Since the 1-0 win over AC Milan, Inter have been very poor and it has seen them slip several points behind Napoli in the third place. There are unlikely to make the vast points difference in the remaining matches of the season. Mazzarri, who was appointed by former president Massimo Moratti, is in danger of losing his job.
Just before any manager is sacked, they usually receive a vote of confidence from the board or the president. It has happened with Mazzarri as well, as president Erick Thohir says that the club are fully behind the manager despite not having won in 2014. The club has won just eight of the last 22 league matches, while they also suffered an embarrassing defeat in the last 16 of the Coppa Italia. There have been rumours that the club are considering a change in management in order to improve their fortunes. However, this vote of confidence from Thohir is likely to keep Mazzarri in the job at least for the next few weeks.
“After the close of the January transfer window and the game in Turin, I feel it is appropriate for me to outline our sports strategy. We are going through a transition year and our main aim is to lay the foundations for our future: this is a difficult season and clearly it is not easy to find another winning combination like the one we had a few years ago. I will sit down and discuss with him which players possess the necessary qualities and motivation to remain with us,” said the president.
