Newly promoted coach, Cristian Brocchi faces five games in which for Milan’s season are crucial to finish as high as possible. According to Brocchi, he is not feeling the pressure that surrounds the club but has a “moral duty” to get Milan back to where they belong.
Having coached the Youth team Brocchi was promoted by Silvio Berlusconi to take the reigns after an abysmal season with former coach Sinisa Mihajlovic.
Brocchi ready to change Milan
Brocchi, 40, faces his first home game at the San Siro as Milan manager and believes he needs to get Milan, “to play a certain type of football,” he continued passionately, “which the history of Milan taught me.”
Brocchi also admitted the reality of his situation, “There isn’t much time available,” however, his determined view is, "working every minute of the day to turn things around.”
The Milan coach speaks very confidently and makes it seem normal to not have any pre-game jitters, he continued, “I don’t feel anxious,” in his eyes he has a, "purpose, to try and achieve its goals.”
The goals Brocchi mentioned were asked by Berlusconi for former coach Mihajlovic to take Milan to the top and most importantly to play European football. Though, those hopes have faded, Milan sit sixth, seven points behind fifth place Fiorentina who currently occupy the last Europa League qualification spot, Milan play an important fixture against Carpi later this week which a victory can only boost this new coach’s confidence, and both the players and the Milan faithful.
Brocchi is most likely preparing for next season, he also added his thoughts on the widely spoken about reported sale of Milan to a possible Chinese investor, “I don’t know anything about the sale,” backing President Berlusconi and his vision, “he wants to bring Milan to the top and do well for the Rossoneri as he has in the last thirty years.”
