City of Milan remains Inter's after Mauro Icardi's dramatic derby winner

Sun, 21 Oct 2018 02:48:00 PDT

Mauro Icardi put a fitting end on another tense, back-and-forth Milan derby, scoring in stoppage time to once again play hero for Inter over Milan. Milan's metro looks like someone has dropped the plastic tubes from Kerplunk on the floor. It's all green, red, purple and yellow lines. Midmorning in Milan this Sunday, and the Derby della Madonnina is still hours away. But the city has been up thinking about it since dawn, and although kickoff at San Siro isn't until 8:30 p.m., you'd think it was imminent judging by the colours on display. A guy across the train has a red and black scarf tucked into his back pocket. His jersey is under a hoodie....

For Milan and Inter, Sunday's derby a chance to show how far they've come

Sat, 20 Oct 2018 01:15:00 PDT

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti and Stewart Robson share their predictions for the next chapter between Milan's rivals. MILAN, Italy -- Stay indoors. Keep the windows closed. Don't let the kids play outside. Southerly winds have blown fumes caused by the burning of rubbish you shouldn't be burning into Milan's well-to-do neighbourhoods, and the city's residents are asking questions about what they're breathing in and whether it's poisonous. Only one topic is helping to shift conversation and divert attention among the chattering classes out by the canal in Navigli, the bars in Brera and the arcades of the Galleria:...

AC Milan's Suso, thriving with San Siro, sets his sights on derby win over Inter

Fri, 19 Oct 2018 12:30:00 PDT

Mina Rzouki, Paolo Bandini and Gab Marcotti discuss Gigio Donnarumma's rise to prominence and what lies ahead for the Italian goalkeeper. Carpooling with Gonzalo Higuain apparently isn't all it's cracked up to be. Next-door neighbours in Milan for a while, Suso and his new teammate used to take turns driving each other the 30 or so miles to training at Milanello. Not much of a morning person, you get the impression Suso would happily spend the journey gradually waking up. But Higuain wants to chat. "He talks and talks and talks," Suso laughs. Anyone who's watched the Argentine play can understand. He's always muttering away at...

AC Milan and Inter fans bring stunning artwork to San Siro for the Derby della Madonnina

Thu, 18 Oct 2018 06:16:00 PDT

Inter captain Mauro Icardi was in the right place to slot in both of Inter Milan's goal and help his side overcome a battling SPAL. Italian Serie A: Gonzalo Higuain - AC Milan 2-0 Chievo Verona ESPN FC's Paul Mariner believes the ball is in Zlatan Ibrahimovic's court when it comes to the rumours linking him with a loan move to Milan. AC Milan and rivals Internazionale may have fallen away from Europe's elite in recent seasons, but the Derby della Madonnina still means everything to the two sets of fans. While recent battles may have only served to help one move nearer European qualification rather than Serie A titles, they have still proved exciting encounters -- and the efforts off the pitch have been just as impressive.

A Zlatan Ibrahimovic-Milan reunion would seem to make sense for all involved

Wed, 17 Oct 2018 11:53:00 PDT

Paul Mariner rates the sensibility of the latest transfer links, including potential comings and goings at Chelsea and Manchester United. While he may have only spent two years of his glittering career with AC Milan, there is no denying that Zlatan Ibrahimovic made a lasting impression on AC Milan and its supporters. The talismanic Swede not only put together an impressive goalscoring tally of 56 goals in just 85 appearances for the Rossoneri, but more importantly, he was an influential leader in their Serie A title success of 2011. His impact went beyond the statistics and trophies though, his flair and ability to create magic...

Lucas Paqueta on fast track to stardom despite Flamengo's coaching carousel

Sat, 13 Oct 2018 07:15:00 PDT

Brazil's Philippe Coutinho insists he wants to beat Argentina to claim bragging rights in what he views as one of the greatest rivalries in football. Brazil and Manchester United's Fred insists he is honoured to be called up for the national team but insists he is looking forward to being back at the club despite recent negative results. Liverpool and Brazil's Fabinho insists he is still trying to settle into life under Jurgen Klopp and that his demands in training and matches are extremely intense. Paqueta is a tiny island in Rio de Janeiro's bay. It is so quaint that there are no cars on the island -- but one of its products has a career that is now moving at jet pace. Lucas Tolentino Coelho de Lima is known as Lucas Paqueta, in honour of his birthplace. As recently as April of last year he was rarely even winning a place on the substitutes bench with Rio de Janeiro giant Flamengo. Soon afterwards, when the club was negotiating with Valencia for the services of goalkeeper Diego Alves, he was...

Italy and AC Milan are in good hands with Gianluigi Donnarumma, Buffon's successor

Wed, 10 Oct 2018 04:33:00 PDT

Mina Rzouki, Paolo Bandini and Gab Marcotti discuss Gigio Donnarumma's rise to prominence and what lies ahead for the Italian goalkeeper. MILAN -- Shifts from one generation to the next rarely happen as cleanly and as publicly as the one that saw the Italian goalkeeping burden truly pass from Gigi Buffon to Gigio Donnarumma during the Italian Cup final in May. It was nearly the end of Buffon's career with Juventus, and he collected a clean sheet while Donnarumma let in four goals, making mistake after mistake. When the match mercifully ended for AC Milan, Buffon approached the younger keeper and whispered something in his ear. One...

They've also scored 10 goals in their last three outings. Positives The clinical edge that was missing during a frustrating run of results has been found and it's essentially turning draws into wins....

Thu, 4 Oct 2018 01:32:00 PDT

AC Milan came from behind to secure a 3-1 Europa League victory over Olympiakos on Thursday, with Gennaro Gattuso's substitutions proving to be crucial.

Positives The Rossoneri took their goals well to seal their comeback win, with Cutrone and Higuain both showing a clinical edge in the box. Having dominated possession for periods to control the game...

Wed, 3 Oct 2018 06:17:00 PDT

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner believes the ball is in Zlatan Ibrahimovic's court when it comes to the rumours linking him with a loan move to Milan. Take a close look at week 31 in Major League Soccer, headlined by Zlatan Ibrahimovic's impact and Alex Ring's stunning finish. The transfer window for all of Europe's big five leagues is closed, but that doesn't stop Transfer Talk from rummaging around about who will be moving where come January.

Franck Kessie's misses, Alessio Romagnoli's error cost Milan vs. Empoli

Thu, 27 Sep 2018 03:17:00 PDT

AC Milan squandered yet another lead as they were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw by Empoli on Thursday night. Lucas Biglia's deflected effort gave the Rossoneri an early lead, but as has been the case on countless occasions so far this season, they failed to hold on to that advantage and dropped more points. Positives A slight dip in the latter stages aside, Milan were in control in the first half and but for their wastefulness in front of goal, they looked more than capable of securing all...

Milan has everything -- passion, support and history -- except the team it deserves

Sun, 23 Sep 2018 12:39:00 PDT

Atalanta scored a stoppage-time equalizer to secure a point at the San Siro against regional rivals Milan, who were condemned to another draw. MILAN -- On a day like Sunday, Milan can feel like the center of the universe. I landed with eight hours to kill before going to San Siro. A little breeze blew through the piazzas and narrow streets. It felt great. The cheese on Manuelina's focaccia recco burned my mouth in a good way, washed down with euro cups of Caffe Si. I sipped a Mi-To cocktail made of Campari and vermouth and wrote two postcards. A man set up an amplifier outside the Duomo and played psychedelic Pink Floyd guitar solos...

Franck Kessie's misses epitomise Milan's wastefulness in draw vs. Atalanta

Sun, 23 Sep 2018 12:23:00 PDT

Atalanta scored a stoppage-time equalizer to secure a point at the San Siro against regional rivals Milan, who were condemned to another draw. AC Milan twice surrendered a lead in their 2-2 Serie A draw with Atalanta on Sunday as they were forced to share the spoils. Goals from Gonzalo Higuain and Giacomo Bonaventura weren't enough for the hosts as they failed to cope with a much-improved second-half performance from Atalanta. Positives Milan's first-half display was a reminder of the level of football that they're capable of playing. They played with intensity, urgency and quality in possession, which would make them a problem for...

Behind the scenes at Arsenal: Why is chief exec Ivan Gazidis to leave the Emirates for AC Milan?

Mon, 17 Sep 2018 05:31:00 PDT

Editor's Note: Ivan Gazidis' departure from Arsenal was confirmed less than 24 hours after Gab Marcotti's article on the CEO's impending departure from the Emirates. Unai Emery is reinventing Arsenal on the pitch, but the man who set the wheels of change in motion -- and who was at the heart of the last few seasons' palace intrigue -- is on his way out. Arsene Wenger departed after nearly 22 seasons as manager in May. In August, Alisher Usmanov agreed to sell his 30 percent stake in the club...

Gonzalo Higuain scores again but Fabio Borini, Milan underwhelm in Luxembourg

Sun, 16 Sep 2018 03:18:00 PDT

Gonzalo Higuain made it two in two games with a second-half winner vs. F91 Dudelange. AC Milan failed to impress but secured three important points as Gonzalo Higuain scored the only goal of the game away at Luxembourg's F91 Dudelange in the Europa League on Thursday night.

The Milan coach got some positive results from certain individuals, namely Samu Castillejo and...

AC Milan disappointed on Sunday night, as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Cagliari after making a poor start to the game.

In turn, they reacted well to the setback and looked in control for the most part, while it would be have been...

Cesc Fabregas to Milan rumours make perfect sense for all involved parties

Wed, 12 Sep 2018 01:22:00 PDT

Given that he only had three weeks at the end of the summer transfer window to conclude deals, sporting director Leonardo naturally wasn't able to complete the AC Milan squad as desired. While Gennaro Gattuso will remain confident that the options at his disposal will help get the Rossoneri back into the top four in Serie A, it would be a surprise if Milan didn't act in January or next summer to address the remaining flaws in the team. Arguably the biggest issue remains adding real quality to...

Mon, 10 Sep 2018 05:58:00 PDT

Jorginho says Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is a man of routine and is unlikely to shake up the team's lineup, unlike new Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti. The transfer window for all of Europe's big five leagues is now closed, but that doesn't stop Transfer Talk from rummaging through the remains of the summer window to scrounge up the earliest bit of gossip about who will be moving where come January. Milan eye swoop for Fabregas Cesc Fabregas could be on his way to Serie A, according to the Mirror. It says Chelsea's Fabregas, out of contract at the end of the season, is wanted by AC Milan after failing to make a Premier League appearance...
