AC Milan’s $250 million spending on transfers in 2017 was so excessive that it earned the 18-time Italian champions a one-year ban from European competition, according to an Associated Press report, and all the massive spree brought them was a sixth-place finish in 2017/2018, and a crisis to open 2018/2019 that has the Rossoneri needing a win against surprising Sassuolo on Sunday to climb out of the ignominious 15th-place spot, in a game that will live stream from Reggio Emilia, Italy.
With only a single win against three draws and a defeat, the crisis in Milan is so severe that the team’s ownership held a closed-door meeting with the team after a training session earlier this week, according to Calcio Mercato, following a drab, mid-week 1-1 draw against likely relegation-bound Empoli. The meeting with representatives of the London-based Elliott Fund, who purchased the team after the previous owner Li Yonghong failed to pay off the debt he ran up buying the Milan team, included not only upper management but the entire roster of players as well, the reports said.
And as if AC Milan’s troubles were not severe enough, the Rossoneri enter the game against third-place, 4-1-1 Sassuolo without a single healthy striker, according to SB Nation. That means Spanish midfielder Suso will be charged with figuring out how to get AC Milan on the scoreboard.
