Well, Yes. I know you must think I’ve gone crazy, but it is still a very big possibility. Despite their loss to Inter on Sunday, Milan suffered another setback when they were bundled out of the Italian Cup. The Wednesday night loss seems to be setting a deadly precedent for the rossoneri. Udinese beat Milan 1-0 at the San Siro to cap a terrible week for the Giants.
What worries me is if this could be the turning point for a team that has impressed many for the latter part of the season. When Milan are on a winning streak, they are unstoppable. Losing one match however, seems to put the team in free fall.
Leonardo has to again re-inspire the winning mentality that took his team from 12th position to 2nd in the League. The way things stand, Milan have a decent shot at winning only 2 trophies this season. The Champions League and the Serie A. As much as critics may want to argue, i still think they can cause an upset and pip Inter to the league title.
Milan face a hard test in the Champions league when they take on 2008 winners Manchester United in the knock out stages. With Beckham back in the squad, and Ronaldinho getting better, the rossoneri can make it to the quarters. However, it won’t be easy for them but they have more than enough talent to see them through this last half of the season.
