The new AC Milan coach explained his football philosophy and what fans can expect from him in the 2019-2020 Italian Serie A campaign.
For new AC Milan manager Marco Giampaolo, his philosophy is very clear, he came to the Italian Lega Serie A club “to play football.”
“Heads up and let’s play football. I don’t distinguish between weak and strong or between starters and reserves,” he told the Serie A website.
“I like motivated players with ambition, players who want to be remembered for writing an important page in this club’s history.”
“The project will center on offering good football which is backed up by results. I’m not looking at a final objective but am trying to build something one step at a time,” he added.
“Promise less and deliver more. I’m now thinking about our training camp, I’ll look to talk to the players so I can understand what they’re thinking and what their ambitions are.”
Giampaolo explained: “Then we’ll put a game plan and mentality in place. All of these details will bring about a vision that will be our point of reference.”
“We certainly need to improve the relationship between goals scored and conceded.”
“AC Milan is above individual interests, players don’t come first. It’s the group that makes the difference, there are no prima donnas but players who have to work for the cause,” he added.
“AC Milan have a very young squad, perhaps the youngest in the league. Inside this group, we should transmit what our ambitions are because small details make a difference in this league.”
