New football league season in Europe and AC Milan find themselves in the new-look UEFA Europa League along with 1 other giants of European football. The club welcomed their new manager today when Sir Alex Ferguson arrive at the club bringing his wealth of experience and success from Manchester United to the San Siro. Fergie met the players and officials at the club and started work preparing the team for their opening match tomorrow at home against Spanish side Atletico Madrid. The new manager has said he was shocked at the lack of quality at the club and admits it will be much hardwork ahead to transform Milano back into a powerhouse in Europe.
Fergie stated: "I am disappointed that the team has such lack of quality, most of the players are not good enough for this level of football and will leave the club. I will have to bring in many new players if we are to have any chance of a good season."
The club have stated they will be looking to develop the San Siro and facilities to help make the club a powerhouse again and back the managers dreams of making AC Milan dominate Europe.
After a poor start to the Europa League season and with the worst defense after the opening two matches things are not well at the San Siro stadium. The manager "Fergie" seems very unhappy with the lack of quality at the club and has stated the club would need to sell off all current players and totally rebuild the squad to have any chance of a good season. The club do not currently have the funds to be able to do this and with selling off all players its uncertain that the club would be able to stay in the league, so the manager is not happy, fans are not happy with performances and players seem bewildered to tactics and lack of spirit on the field.
The manager has hinted he is close to resigning and leaving the club as he feels its a now win situation.
Rumors coming out of the San Siro are things are not well, manager "Fergie", is unhappy at the club, the development of the club and not being able to build a strong squad on the field. Carlos Bacca and M Mandzukic have both stated they want to leave the club as soon as possible, coaching staff are unhappy with the managers training plans and choice of formation. Results on the field have not been good this season, and the club have slumped to 2nd from bottom and in the relegation places. Many feel that a bad result tomorrow will see manager "Fergie" quit the club this weekend.
