Zlatan Ibrahimovic came on as substitute in the 55th minute in Milan’s scoreless draw with Sampdoria, marking another Serie A return one of football greats and ageless star Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Milan seems to have lost it, be it in the attack, midfield and or defense. Despite changing manager, bought players, Milan haven’t been able to find their feet.
Zlatan’s introduction against Sampdoria didn’t quite help the team as it was if, Piatek was totally disconnected from the rest of the team. The manager should have started the Swede instead.
Milan’s inability to score goals had become one of the major problems facing the club at this time. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, a more precise and prolific goal scoring could save Milan if there’s a quick blend.
The Swedes addition would give room for new formation, instead of the usual 433 formation, tied around Suso.
Milan could drop further down if there’s no quick. It became effective for Milan to burn out some of the defence, introducing Zlatan after a few minutes.
His fresh legs and the tactical skill he brought vs a slightly pooped out defence was very handy.
