Milan sack Mihajlovic

Turning Milan into a laughing stock.  I cant see anyone wanting to take this job while Silvio keeps getting involved.

I get he loves the club and want them to top dog in europe again, but until he stops interfeering that is not going to happen.

AC Milan are miles away from the side that I saw win the CL in 2003 at Old Trafford & vastly inferior to the late 80s/early 90s teams. Most of that is down to underinvestment initially coupled with the boardroom squabbling & interference with team matters by Silvio & offspring. If they don't qualify for Europe then I expect some big name departures........................

Every Milan coach seems to get similar results to the previous one, which suggests that the coach isn't the problem.

At some point you have to show faith in a coach, allow them to make mistakes, and let them learn and develop along with the squad. It probably won't click instantly, but as long as some signs of progress are there, patience is needed.

Milan signed some younger players last summer, and have been inconsistent. There was a good run at one point which showed the team's potential, despite the squad still very much being in the rebuilding phase.

Mihajlovic may not have turned out to be the long term answer, but he deserved longer like Inzaghi, Seedorf and the rest. I can see Brocchi ending the season well, getting the job permanently, and then being sacked early on next season. It'd be a repeat of Juve with Ferrara when the boardroom was a mess.

Edit: Thinking positively, atleast Zamparini isn't the president!

Berlusconi needs to cut his valuation of the club in half and sell to someone reputable (not Mr.Bee), then leave and bring his daughter with him.
Where's he getting 1bn valuation from!

As for Zamparini...I bet my soul that Ballardini will be sacked before the end of the season. The players revolted against Ballardini a couple of months ago so he's already a dead man walking. What the hell is Zamparini thinking, even for him this is crazy. I don't understand why the Palermo tifosi put up with this, they must be a soft bunch.

In fairness they're not putting up with it.  There's been protests and they managed to get the game stopped a couple of times against Lazio, and now have a stadium ban.

I guess the ultimate way would be a mass boycott, but as we're seeing with Aston Villa and Newcastle, unless there's a fan rich enough to buy the club, there's not a lot supporters can do.  Getting rid of an owner is very different to getting rid of a coach or a player.

It's just that they've been messed around so much i expected them to go on an all out war threatening to burn the club HQ down, permanent protests outside it calling for his head, pitch-forks and all that kind of craic. I didn't see their Lazio game though, i only read that it was stopped three times, i think i expected the supporters to start kicking up a fuss months ago. They seemed very tolerant up to now considering how ridiculous the situation got after Iachini was sacked (the first time).

I'm guessing the delay in any serious protests may be because the Zamparini era is bizarrely a successful one in their history.  In my lifetime I don't remember them being in Serie A until he had taken over and signed players like Toni and Grosso in their prime in Serie B.

They've probably got used to the chaos too as generally results have been good over his tenure despite this.

They even started this season reasonably well, despite losing Dybala, and looked likely for a long time to be safe.  Now Zamparini has become a caricature of himself and he needs to go.
