"It’s not exactly planning for the future"| AC Milan latest

Paddy Agnew joined Off The Ball to give his thoughts on the direction AC Milan are heading and all other things Serie A.

The Milanese club currently sits in sixth position in the table and it has been reported that German coach Ralf Rangnick is set to take over as coach next season.

"The problem is we don’t know a lot about the German man who’s coming in to coach," Agnew said.

"People like Paolo Maldini who has been part of the direction of the club recently, he hasn’t been terribly enthusiastic about it.

"He would have preferred to find an Italian coach or to stay with the current coach Stefano Pioli."

Agnew described how AC Milan sent for Zlatan Ibrahimovic mid-season in an effort to salvage their campaign.

"To try and patch up a bad situation they sent for 37-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic to lead the troops from January on. 

"He’s done it very successfully but it’s not exactly planning for the future."

On Tuesday, they came back from 2 goals down to beat Juventus 4-2 thanks to goals from Ibrahimovic, Kessie, Leao and Rebic.

"Ibrahimovic as far as we know will not be there next season," Agnew said 

"They’ve got a very young squad apart from Ibrahimovich though.

"The sort of football they’ve been playing the last few weeks since the end of lockdown has been very enterprising.

"They played very well against Juventus and were full value for that result and not many teams can say that against Juve."

Looking towards the future Agnew believes the club are going to very much focus on youth over experience.

"They’re not going to be in a situation where they’ll bring in any 40 or 50 million euro players.

"They have young players like Rebic and Leao up front. Player's like that who's best football is in front of them."
