Capello blames Milan injuries on summer tours in the USA

Experienced former football manager, Fabio Capello, has voiced his concerns about AC Milan’s worrying injury situation in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Capello attributed AC Milan’s injury woes to what he perceives as inadequate preparation for their off-season matches in the USA and other foreign locations. “Perhaps I’m too old-fashioned, but I believe there’s been inadequate preparation for the games played in the USA or elsewhere,” Capello stated in La Gazzetta dello Sport.

He also suggested the team’s commercial obligations might be hindering their performance quality. “These matches are primarily for commercial purposes. However, the price for this is often paid in injuries and physical strain. A return to staggered training schedules might be beneficial,” he reasoned.

Additionally, Capello expressed concerns regarding Zlatan Ibrahimović’s uncertain position at the club, as announced in the club’s vague official statement. The ambiguity left many questioning whether the Swedish star has a technical role at Milan or if he might interfere with the leadership of Stefan Pioli.

“From the statement written in ‘political language’, it’s unclear what his role is. Technical role? The danger is that it could undermine Pioli’s leadership. However, dismissing him now wouldn’t be very helpful,” were Capello’s words to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
