Massimiliano Allegri during the press conference at Milanello. The caoch spoke about numerous subjects.
Quote:
I have had a good impression of Taiwo, he trained well and just needs to get used to his team-mates. El Shaarawy is also very skilful and is a bright player, very enthusiastic as all the other players from the youth are. We have little to add to training, all we need is the correct motivation. We have to improve individually and when we do that the team will play better. We have to be prepared to do well from now until May. We cannot afford to fall into the presumption that we cannot be beaten or we have peaked. If we did that theen it would be a mistake, we will try to start well, physically we are more or less all right. This year we have to vary our preparation at bit for the match on the August 6, we have fifteen days to work in the best way before the two big games for the Audi Cup in Munich. The match at Solbiate on the 20th should be a good workout. We will be ready for the league and last year we started with the handicap in that we were five points behind Inter from the first four games. Then we improved but to top for 28 games was not easy and that is now to the good work put in by the players.

A wide midfielder might improve the team because when you have skillful players then the team improves. We have 60 games ahead of us, last year the title and reaching the semi-finals of the Italian Cup was obtained because everyone was ready to play when needed. Skillful players are always welcome at Milan. Montolivo is an international, he's an important player who has done well in recent years although year he had problems with his ankle. He is one of the best midfielders in Italy who started out in a wide position but has played in the centre for Fiorentina for many years. He has a different build from Pirlo.

Van Bommel, Ambrosini and Seedorf as he did in London can play in front of the defence. Robinho? It is difficult to accept tactical solutions here at the beginning of the season, no one knows what can happen. Robinho has done well as a playmaker, and the support striker, there will be the same situation next season, can sometimes cover one role and sometimes the other, it is important to have more solutions to vary from game to game. Ibrahimovic? Last year up to January, when the team had yet to find it identity, he was decisive and devastating, he is a generous player, a player who pulls the team forward, then is such a long Championship he could not expect to carry on like that considering the physical make-up he has. He always made the difference even when he wasn't playing as well. As for a transfer gift, Milan has already signed three players and Paloschi has come back but the team has remained the same from year apart from Pirlo's departure with only Pirlo leaving but the team is now reinforced and competitive. Between now and August 31 we'll see what the club will do but I am very pleased with things up until now. The rotation with players on the bench worked last year and it will work this year if everyone is pulling in the same direction. Everyone who is at Milan wants to win. The players have to do the same. Everyone was important last year and it's important to have 28 players over the 35 games. We will play every three days. There are international matches so we need to allow the players to rest. It happened last year and it will happen this year. They are professionals and they are all ready to play their part but I cannot play more than eleven players at one time. If we want to defend the title and do better in the Champions League then that is the way it has to be and the players understand that. As for signings in attack, we have up until August 31 and things can change. I think it is difficult to see us playing three in defence, it could happen but we would need a few games but Milan is a four-man defence. I think Brazil will probably defeat Ecuador. Schweinsteiger? He plays for Bayern Munich and he is a world-class player.

The other teams? Juventus are doing well on the transfer market, they are moving well, I think they are creating the right foundations to become competetive. Roma are also doing well on the transfer market, adding players to a technically sound squad. Inter are the same squad as last year and at the moment with the additions of Alvarez and Jonathan they are very strong and will fight for the league title with us. Napoli have held on to their players from last season, thay have added Inler who is excellent and also a good defender like Britos and they will be there also. Hamsik? There are other playersthat can adapt to our game, and that is all I am prepared to say. The players who move well and make good runs are always going to fit in well here at Milan. But I am not talking about Hamsik, he is a Napoli player and I don't want to disrupt matters, I just wanted to give my technical opinion and that is easy to do when it comes to a player like Hamsik. Too many players? From September 13th we will start playing twice a week and you can never have too many players. A Cassano-Montolivo swap? No way, Cassano stays here.

On other subjects: "Pirlo is no longer here and we have been talking about another player for months now to replace him in midfield, we have strengthened the defence and already they had a wonderful season last year. On the other coaches I think Gasperini deserves to be at Inter and Conte is also a good choice for Juve."

from what I heard aside from the 25 eligible for CL list, I think Allegri wants quality youth players for the rest (making it 28 ).

Milan work with the ball in second session of the day


(IN THE PHOTO: Kevin Prince Boateng in action in training)

Quote:
After training in the morning, the team were back at 17.30 on the far pitch at the Rossoneri sports centre.

Massimiliano Allegri first took his players through a drill with the ball and then 20 minutes was spent on warming-up as the players passed the ball between themselves and then worked on their touch on the ball.

The team then spent a few minutes stretching and as the session moved into its second phase they played a match where the pitch was divided into three areas. During this drill the players were reduced to one or two touches before they were allowed a free touch.

The team will train in the morning and afternoon tomorrow. For any fans visiting Milanello whenever the team train on the far pitch they can watch the session although the team will not be training there on Friday, July 15 but rather Saturday, 16 and Sunday, 17.

The Milan squad have completed their morning training session and got back to work at 5.30 this afternoon.

The Milan squad have completed their morning training session. The first half hour was carried out in the astroturf indoor pitch for a warm up that was completed with some exercises over the hurdles.

At 10.15 the squad started the real work with most of the players out in the woods surrounding Milanello close to the central pitch where they ran 3km with some uphill and downhill sections.

Bonera, Inzaghi and Nesta remained on the central running track where they ran 5km while Gianluca Zambrotta worked on the sand pit.

The goalkeepers worked apart. The squad trained until 11am but continues to workout in the gym until midday. The second training session will start at 5.30pm.

Allegri :"We have 60 games ahead of us, last year the title and reaching the semi-finals of the Italian Cup was obtained because everyone was ready to play when needed."

The way I read it, sounds like we are sure win for a treble. 38 Serie A games + 13 CL game ( to final ), 9 for Coppa Italia.

If we want to really compete for the CL.

Buy WC players.

Other way forget it, and Concentrate more on Copa and SA.

Today’s first session for the Rossoneri. After starting off with some stretching, the team then did some work on body control after which some of the team took to the pitches and others finished the session in the gym.


Quote:
MILANELLO: The first session of the day at the Milanello sports centre. The team gathered on the all weather surface at 10 o’clock this morning.

The first part of the session saw the players stretching out their muscles, specifically working on their legs, backs and abdominals. Then the players took a run around the pitch, following a special route designed to improve body control and balance.

Some of the players finished the session in the gym while Gattuso, Bonera, Flamini, Taiwo, Abate, Inzaghi, Paloschi, Antonini, Strasser, Boateng, Emanuelson joined up with the youth team on the outside pitches.

Gattuso, Boateng, Flamini, Strasser, Emanuelson and the youth team players worked on passing, crossing and shooting while the others worked on defensive tactics.

The team will get back to work this afternoon at 17.30
I think the site got it wrong. There's no way Inzaghi was working on "defensive tactics".

He probably did work on defending his innocence to the big, bad referee who thought he dived.

This may sound stupid, but can someone post pictures along with names of the youth players currently training with us?

I see what Fossati looks like, but I don't know the others.. It'll be much appreciated.

Plus, Boateng runs fucking weirdly.

Mattia Valoti:



Rodrigo Ely:





Ricardo Ferreira:




And about Boateng running, have you seen BGP? Dude looks like he is falling over


(BTW, wasnt De Sciglio also supposed to train with the first team? Or has he been replaced by Ely?)

There's also the primavera keeper Piscitelli and that the kid we got from Torino, Gianmarco Comi, about De Sciglio, I think I've seen him in the training but can't really confirm it 100 %

Is that Comi or Zigoni?

Gianmario Comi:



Gianmarco Zigoni:




Motherfucker!, do they look alike

Comi does not look adolescent.

And thank you, Ash.

Not really any stand out 'lookers' there though. Ferreira's eyes are nice though.

Fossati's eyebrows? Jesus christ... People can't moan at SES92's and then not say anything about his.
