AC Milan Season 2020-21: the return of the king

AC Milan is the only side in Europe’s top five leagues at the time of writing to have lost a single point this season.

I Rossoneri are the Serie A Division leaders and have continued in the UEFA Europa League with their fine form. Indeed, they are not a side that many would like to win this season’s championship, but Stefano Pioli has shown that back in the summer, the club may have made a catastrophic decision.

Earlier in the year, AC Milan almost replaced Ralf Rangenick as boss, but Pioli managed to persuade the legend, Paolo Maldini, that he was the man for the San Siro role.

If it was not just about his incredible start to the season, then maybe the fact that Zlatan Ibrahimovic was able to handle it would have been considered a big positive thing to hold the manager around the club.

Of course, the Swede has a tremendous personality and character, but in years gone by there was also an over-reliance on the enormous forward, but you know that’s no longer the case.

Simon Kjaer was also another bright spot for I Rossoneri this season, as with his performances at the back, he impressed many. So far, the 31-year-old has proven crucial for AC Milan and the Denmark international has added to their backline an element of composure and assertiveness.

Under the guidance of Pioli at the San Siro, Hakan Calhanoglu also benefited. In the past, the Turkish international undoubtedly lost his way a little. It sure took time than we would like to see Hakan Calhanoglu hit his trail, but the playmaker in Milan shows signs that he is the center of our future.

However, as the review of the top teams in Serie A by The Daily Mail so far shows, there are some negatives that I Rossoneri need to fix and can not leave too long to proceed.
