The Importance of Milan's Dubai TC

The Serie A competition is having a break and will resume next year starting on January, all teams are set to prepare their squad right after the Christmas holiday with different purposes. The big three, Inter, Juve and Milan are definitely preparing themselves to win the Scudetto, while others are aiming for Champions League zone, UEFA spot and escaping relegation battle.

Concerning the race for the Scudetto, though some pundits claim that the battle will only be between Inter and Juve, but never loose eyes on Milan as the Rossoneri would give a Shockwave for the two teams above them. Despite trailing 9 points behind Inter, Milan are only 3 points away from Juve and with many games still left to play, don't back them out as just yet.

However, it won't be an easy ride for the 7 times Champions League winner to catch Inter as they will face a tough schedule after the break, which is playing Roma and Fiorentina. That's why, the Red and Black squad must do very well on their preparation in Dubai, that will start on December 29. As many may know, one of the reasons that put Milan 9 points away from Inter is their poor Pre-season prep. Without managing to field in most of their squad in last summer pre-season, the team have to work extra hard in getting the players to gel this season, not to mention the poor physical conditions that led to many injuries. So in order to step up their performance after the Holiday, Milan needs to nail their Dubai training.

The Rossoneri would certainly have some of their injured list back on Dubai though some may still be missing,but the likes of Flamini, Ambrosini, Borrielo and maybe Bonera could be there. With the addition of David Beckham, their winter camp would be sparkling as ever but more than that the Italian giant would certainly hopes that they won't be loosing anymore players. Why is this winter camp important for Milan's season? Well it's an easy answer since the team fail to practice together last summer, the upcoming training camp would be the perfect tools in gelling the squad and making any new tactical variations , especially preparing the squad if they should play without their key players gattuso and maybe Kaka. If it goes well, this will definitely make Milan more solid in facing the obstacles ahead of them as in technical aspects no one would doubt that the Red and Black are on top of the table in Serie A this season.

The question would be what Milan should do to play more consistent and get lots of points especially against weaker teams, beside luck that is. On the technical aspect, the Rossoneri only need an intensive work to gel the team and get the players to know each others game more. Aside from that, Ancelotti should also build other combinations and tactics especially in attacking and defending. This would really help them if they should loose one or two important players in the remaining games (other than Rhino).

Another important discussion that rings on the Milan camp is whether they should buy a new DM in replace of Gattuso or not. Loosing Rhino for predictably until the end of the season would definitely troubles the Rossoneri, however they actually still have other players on the squad that can cover Rhino, such as Flamini and Ambrosini not to mention other players like Seedorf, Jankulovski and new boy David Beckham that can be shifted as Pirlo's partner in the heart of Milan's play. If those players are fit for the remaining matches, then a new midfielder won't be much of a use unless he is a very-very good player and will remain for a long time at the club. Some fans even suggested that rather than purchasing a replacement for Gattuso, Milan should rather get a new CB that can directly play from January (Milan already bought Thiago Silva, but he will be eligible next season). With the unlikely recovery of Alessandro Nesta and the shaky performance of the Ill Capitano and Kaladze, it would be wiser if Adriano Galliani cash out on someone like Santacroce or even Mexes to fill in the hole on the defense. Certainly with a better defense, the Rossoneri's striking force can fully concentrate on scoring goals and not only that, a strong back line would really lift the players confidence and mentality especially in big games.
