He did not play the best players. Those that sucked in game after game were still in the starting eleven.I don't understand the sacking. Did he not play the best players that we have? Did he not listen to the outside opinion and played Suso on the left? Did he not take out Hakan and Piatek for Leao and Paqueta at halftime in the match against Genoa?
The problem does not lie with Giampaolo. The problems lie with the players. How did Piatek who was scoring freely at Genoa failed to register any goal from open play for us this season? How did Hakan and Suso played so badly this season? The sacking of Giampaolo will only add more unhappiness amongst the squad.
If the sacking is true, then I dun understand how getting Pioli will solve the problem. The same players will still be there, their morale will not be boosted by the appointment of Pioli. In fact, their morale will be much lower seeing how the hashtag #Pioliout is gaining popularity.
In fact, I think Gattuso will be ideal as he will be a great coach to motivate the players and get them to play at their 100%. Not some Pioli who has zero Milan affinity, who doesn't resonate with Milan to take charge.
He did not listen to anybody, playing Suso all the time was part of the problem.
Why did he play them and bench Paqueta and Leao in the first place? Part of the problem.
The problem was with both Giampaolo and the players. The players looked confused, scared and insecure, exactly the way Giampaolo seemed on the bench and press conferences.
And god, please no Gattuso. The dude is good at motivating players and only that. He is a bad coach.
