Ac Milan Eager to End San Siro Taboo Before Inter

Suffering three defeats from four games, is not the start that AC Milan were writing in their early season script, but just like a series of unfortunate events, that's simply the fate that Rossoneri must endure.

After last weekend's defeat against Udinese, this midweek, the Rossoneri already have the chance to redeem their current bad patch, although many problems still clouding their path.

9 Men Milan Stumble Again

AC Milan tasted another defeat but Massimiliano Allegri's future apparently might still alive considering the messy circumstances that hit Il Rossoneri at Friuli stadium.

 Having two players sent off in the second period simply cost Milan the game, which is already difficult to begin with. Cristian Zapata might reconsider his decision to lunge a tackle the resulted in his dismissal along with a penalty kick, but Kevin Prince Boateng might really need to control his discipline after he also got a marching order 10 minutes from time.

Will Friuli Be Allegri's Final Dance?

Massimiliano Allegri's faith is hanging in very tight rope at the moment as many Italian press suggested that the upcoming match against Udinese on Sunday, could be the final test for him this season.

Although this possibility has been denied by Ac Milan's vice president, Adriano Galliani, but one can't really be sure about Allegri's future, especially after a rather similar situation occurred regarding Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva's departure this summer.

Has Expressive Boateng Lose His Swagger?

The major overhaul that AC Milan took this summer left many holes to fill, especially that leading role up front which is badly needed after the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who arguably was Rossoneri's vocal point in attack during his two season at Milanello.

Being one of the players who have been improving well in the past couple of seasons, Kevin Prince Boateng, currently attempting to take some of that responsibility, although so far it hasn't been successful.

A moment of uncertainties creeping down into the head of Ac Milan players as they walked off from San Siro pitch minutes after suffering another disappointing home defeat in Serie A.

Milanello Special: Ac Milan New Transfer Updates

Silly season has been one of the most frustrating time for many football fans, including Milanisti this days, especially since two of their main stars, Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who can't seem to get their names out of the press' ink.

Those two names practically have been on going-not going mode since the start of the transfer market, with Paris Saint-Germain being the most consistent potential buyer for those two with recent rumors stating a fee around 60-70 million being throw around by the media. It's obviously a rather odd since not long ago Rossoneri's vice manager, Adriano Galliani, continously confirmed that Silva and Ibrahimovic are not for sale despite their current high earnings.

 In contrast to the departure trend at Ac Milan, veteran defender, Mario Yepes apparently is extending his adventure in the Rossoneri shirt for another year.

Speaking to the press after a meeting with Milan's vice president, Adriano Galliani, earlier today, Gattuso revealed that he doesn't feel there will be much space for him again at the club, so the midfielder decided to give space for new players next summer. The former Italian international also hinted at retiring by stating that in one year, he will return to Milanello and discuss a possible position at the club, not as a player of course. This decision comes only a day after Nesta confirmed his farewell via press conference on Wednesday, a pretty fast development indeed at the Rossoneri headquarter.
