Milan Tell Marco van Basten To Get Ready

Van Basten The latest developments in the Milan drama have led to further speculation as the Dutchman is being tipped to replace Leonardo should he leave the club.

Milan have called Marco van Basten to alert him that he could be needed to save face as the voices of discontent continue to plague the club.

According to Il Corriere Dello Sport, the former Netherlands and Ajax coach has been contacted by the Rossoneri as uncertainty over current tactician Leonardo grows further.

The report suggests Milan are considering to replace the Brazilian with the former Diavolo hitman.

Local media in Italy claim that Leonardo has lost control of the dressing room, and is heading on a downward spiral.

It is said that he has been given one last chance to turn the clubs fortunes around – this weekend’s game against Atalanta.

Despite the reports though, vice president Adriano Galliani asserted that the club was backing Leonardo following the 1-0 home loss to FC Zurich in the Champions League.

Furthermore, the chief was at Milanello this morning in what was is being seen as a show of solidarity towards the under fire coach.
