MILAN, GAZZETTA – As the Gazzetta reports today, the Milan team really had to put a patch on Leao’s chances.
Milan, Gazzetta: “Leao slowly dies in Turin”
“Rafa Leao’s head is one of the most precious safes in the great bank of contemporary football: whoever finds a way to get in there permanently will give himself some gold bars and a fantastic footballer to the world. So far, however, no attempts: the lock resists. In good evenings Leao surfs enthusiasm, pulls the plug here and there for ten minutes but is forgiven with an acceleration, a shot, a play from nothing. Last night, however, none of this. To the dangling he added the poor management of the main scoring that Milan had, when the game still seemed to have to start. From then on, nothing. Indeed, the words of Arrigo Sacchi that come to mind: «Leao lacks continuity. In Zagreb he was irritating at first, then he scored a beautiful goal. I would like to see him always follow his marker ». The concept is clear: the Portuguese is a great player, but the difference between talent and champion is in the ability to stay in the game for more than a few flashes.
