May 3, 2017 05:30 AM PDT

The FC crew discuss AC Milan's takeover. In January, AC Milan coach Vincenzo Montella made no secret of his desire to work with Gerard Deulofeu and bring the best out of him during a short loan stint from Everton.

Mourinho gets it right, Conte gets it wrong; drama in Milan; Messi, Isco star

Apr 17, 2017 08:56 AM PDT

Jose Mourinho made it seem like it was no big deal. It was, he said, pretty much the same game plan that Manchester United used against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the FA Cup last month, and had that quarterfinal tie remained 11 vs. 11 -- Ander Herrera was sent off in the first half -- he was "totally convinced" that it would also have resulted in victory, just as it did on Sunday when his side beat the Premier League leaders 2-0. In fact, though, it was a big deal. Mourinho left out the likes...

Paul Mariner and Alexis Nunes discuss Milan's future after Silvio Berlusconi relinquished control of the club. While it's no secret that neither AC Milan nor Inter have been at the peak of their powers in recent years, both clubs have had more reason to be optimistic this season. Having gone several years between them without qualifying for the Champions League, they've certainly dropped off the pace domestically. However, this season the city rivals are battling over a place in the Europa League and that makes this showdown all the more important. Two points separate the two sides ahead of kick-off, with...
