Gattuso spoke about the need for more practice sessions with the full squad for Milan to potentially adopt a 4-2-3-1 formation and to build up some much needed chemistry. Milan have had a strong showing and will play a crucial Deby della Madonnina immediately after the break on the 21st of October. The key will be finding form after the break as Milan are notoriously sluggish when returning from international duty.
Another solid win for @acmilan before the international break.— Nick D'Urbano (@NickDurbano_) October 7, 2018
- 10 goals in 3 games
- Higuain has 6 goals in 5
- Suso up to 6 assists this year
- 2 points off 4th with a game in hand
- Huge Milan Derby after the break to come
Awesome signs for the Rossoneri!
Also, Cutrone and Romagnoli were called up to the Italy squad but exited the training camp as their are not fully fit to play. Romagnoli has an issue with muscle fatigue and Cutrone is having trouble with his ankle. Hopefully both the key players have time to rest and recuperate before we resume the league.
