dybala imo. Cr will get his goals and score penalties....but dybala's fitness and form will be the deciding factor.

I'm not surprised at all that many of the players from that generation of Milan players have become managers (and very good ones!) and directors and even successful politicians (like Kaladze).

It was a very smart group of players and at the time Milan was a school... Ancelotti and the rest had learned the trade from Sacchi and Fabio Capello and they passed it on.

It's a bit of a shame that we couldn't make a smooth transition to another generation like we did from the 90's to the 00's now.
The 4 ex-players we used as manager had a lot of trouble who were not only their own, the ownership changed twice and will probably change again in a few years and you all know what was up.

Anyway I don't particularly care a lot about Milan being filled with ex-players. Though it's always nice have someone Maldini in a key role to rebuild the club. And I'm pretty sure more ex-players will join the next few years not because they used to play in Milan but because a lot of them are doing damn good work elsewhere.

I think Rino will turn out to be one of Italy's finest, he has all the tools. We good now but I'm really gutted it didn't work out; could have just stuck w Rino and got him a Lozano for his 433 along with two more quality players. Not that either have done that great for Napoli so far.

But man I love this mans post and pre-match conferences. His honesty, charisma combined with the bluntness makes him one of the best to listen to already.

I thought Seedorf did well (though I'm quite biased when it comes to Clarence, as he was my favourite player). Considering that he literally retired as a player to take up the managerial position at a team that was struggling, Milan performed the 4th-best out of all teams only counting games that Seedorf was in charge (which included a 5-game win streak), just one point from 3rd place. It's just a shame that Berlusconi was literally wanking to how well Inzaghi did with the youth team and couldn't wait to kick out Seedorf in favour of Inzaghi.

In many ways, Inzaghi was set up to fail at Milan before even his first game. Like you said, the ownership change and associated financial struggles meant that he was given a garbage team. Inexperienced managers will obviously make mistakes and Inzaghi made plenty of them...but the quality of the team can help counter that, and Inzaghi's Milan were really...really bad.

I have nothing to say about Brocchi's Milan. So few games in charge and the team's fate under Mihajlovic was already sealed. This team suffered from the same problems as Inzaghi's team.

Rino. Much grinta and benefited from a more stable ownership that actually had some semblance of a plan going forward. I also thought that Gattuso did a fine job. The team was not strong and the attacking players couldn't score on a prostitute (Higuain was an incredible centre back for teams against Milan), yet they finished one point shy of Champions League qualification. In some ways, this is less surprising as Rino was the most experienced of the four.

I'm sure that all four would be better managers today had they not jumped on the Milan ship so early.

Almost all of them has great potential, as Sven suggested. Pippo is once again earning plaudits for his work at Benevento.. He had done a great job at Venezia as well, but it didn't work out for him at Milan and Bologna.

It's very easy to write off managers after one bad stint, but they are also on developing journeys and need good environments to thrive.

That Milan was almost like a university for players. They have all had amazing grounding and can all build good careers.

re: rino...definitely was not the one that benefited from stable ownership. he was hired by mirabelli as yonghong was MIA...

That's one of the things I miss the most - that squad was not only talented but very intellectual.

Rino is my favorite player and I hated to see him go, but considering how we're playing now under Pioli, I don't regret this course of action one bit.

First pro game first win as a coach. The dark side of the force (no racist) flows strong through him
