Milan News For July 21 2020

A lot happened on July 21 2020 in Milan land. A brief summary below:

Milan beat Sassuolo 2-1 away at the Mapei Stadium. Ibra scored a brace and Calhanoglu assisted on both goals. The game featured a Francesco Caputo penalty after a Calhanoglu hand ball in the box. The referee had to use the monitor to confirm the accidental hand ball. The hand ball rule remains a farce.
Yellows for Theo and Bennacer mean that they will both miss the Atalanta week 36 match. Conti and Romagnoli left the pitch with injuries and are doubts for the match as well. Especially since the match is only three days away.
As the game was underway news arrived that Ralf Rangnick is not taking over Milan and the team agreed that Pioli’s good work that has the team unbeaten since the restart deserves a continuation. An extension was announced soon after the Rangnick report was confirmed. Pioli has his contract extended until June 2022. The likelihood that Maldini stays at Milan is now higher, so is Ibra’s possible stay. One must wonder how Boban feels about this. This will also have repercussions on the incoming market as players like Dominik Szoboszlai are widely seen as Rangnick choices.
