MILAN – Zlatan Ibrahimovic made his seasonal debut with the Milan shirt, he played 39 minutes, he moved quite well but he was unable to score also because he had no scoring chances except a melee header. The first of the Swede was the only reason of interest for the Rossoneri fans because for the rest the team did as badly as usual. AC Milan is in crisis, it was back from a heavy 0-5 against Atalanta before the Christmas holidays, and today it failed to reverse the course.
Piatek never scores, nor talks with teammates, Paqueta has become a footballer to be inserted in the last minutes of the match in search of a miraculous play. We are talking about two players who cost Milan more than seventy million euro a few market sessions ago … In this bleak scenario, the only hope is 38-year-old Ibrahimovic.
Today the Swede could not do anything except serve some air assist with some encouragement to the new teammates. Ibra has to find his best physical condition since he hadn't played a game since last October when he left the Major League Soccer playoffs.
The truth is that today Sampdoria would have deserved to win and for this reason Milan came out among the whistles of its fans. If it had not been for an extraordinary Donnarumma, author of miraculous saves on Gabbiadini, the Rossoneri would have cashed yet another defeat of the season against a team that is also below in the standings.
