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Shortly after it was announced that Walter Mazzarri had been replaced by Roberto Mancini at Inter, former Italy striker Christian Vieri revealed to reporters that Milan boss Pippo Inzaghi had hoped that the change wouldn't happen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...

Have Milan proved they are a better side without Balotelli?

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

Three months have passed since Mario Balotelli left the San Siro behind and joined Liverpool, but the Italian international continues to face the same questions that have haunted him throughout his career. While he battles through testing times, back in Italy there is a lingering question: Have Milan improved without him?

As soon as it became apparent that he would be leaving, it felt as though it was only a matter of time before he was criticised. Those who have followed his progress will have...

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.

"We bet your biggest fan Pope Francis won't like our mascot," Milan tweeted ahead of Wednesday's Trofeo Berlusconi against the Copa Libertadores-winners San Lorenzo at San Siro. 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.

Already aware of Milan's nickname, the former Inter defender and assistant coach Sinisa Mihajlovic picked up on it...

El Shaarawy ends goal drought but Milan held to draw

AC Milan's head coach Filippo Inzaghi says their fans were right to boo them after the 2-0 defeat to Palermo.

After being heavily criticised and questioned in midweek, Milan needed to respond on Saturday night and did so as they secured a 2-2 draw at Sampdoria. Head coach Pippo Inzaghi was forced into various changes, but the most notable saw the attacking trident take a different look with Fernando Torres dropped to the bench.

The Rossoneri had collected just two points from the previous three fixtures, and although talk of a crisis was perhaps exaggerated by the Italian media, the club was in desperate...

Latest Milan defeat poses the question: Are the Rossoneri in crisis?

Fernando Torres has only one goal in seven games for AC Milan. Are his ankle injuries the issue, or lack of goal-scoring form?

Sunday's defeat to Palermo at the San Siro raised serious questions about Milan, with the Italian media spending the last few days analysing their problems. From Pippo Inzaghi being a magician to the Rossoneri showing signs of a new era, the positive atmosphere within the club appears to have suffered a significant blow.

The 2-0 loss shouldn't be considered in isolation, either; Milan are without a win in their last three games after consecutive 1-1 draws with Fiorentina and Cagliari. So is this...
