Milan derby a sad reminder of Europe's fallen kings

Former Inter striker Diego Milito supports Roberto Mancini's appointment as the team's new head coach.

"Winning the derby," he says, "is the first thing they asked me."

This weekend brings with it one of Europe's great fixtures, the game they call ll Derby della Madonnina. Filippo Inzaghi's AC Milan...

Milan have Inzaghi's passion to match the Mancini effect

AC Milan vice president Adriano Galliani expresses his opinion on the fan disruptions during Italy-Croatia.

Shortly after it was announced that Walter Mazzarri had been replaced by Roberto Mancini at Inter, former Italy striker Christian Vieri revealed to reporters that Milan boss Pippo Inzaghi had hoped that the change wouldn't happen ahead of the Derby della Madonnina. However, his "nightmare scenario" became reality, as the Rossoneri prepare for their city rivals.

Mancini returns for his second stint with the club, and in any case a new coach will always bring about a boost in confidence as he...

The departure of Mario Balotelli has opened the door for players like Stephan El Shaarawy, right, to flourish at Milan.

Stephan El Shaarawy rediscovering form that made him Pharaoh of Milan

Italy head coach Antonio Conte concedes his team is still behind Europe's best, but says there is still time to bridge the gap ahead of their Euro 2016 qualifier against Croatia.

The accompanying picture was of their talisman, the Diavolo walking out on the pitch, his horns poking through, his tail pointing upward with a menacing smile matched only in these circles by Gunnersaurus.
