Because less players equal more space to pass and move


Mario Balotelli scored the only goal of the game in the 1-0 win over Hellas Verona during the weekend, which helped new manager Clarence Seedorf start with the victory. Massimiliano Allegri was recently sacked as the manager of Milan after a string of poor results left the club in the bottom half of the table.

The club did not waste any time in appointing a successor, as they immediately brought in their former player Clarence Seedorf, who has won league and Champions league titles. The Dutchman made a great impression in his first match after winning all three points.

Balotelli, who is one of the few top players left to the club, scored the only goal of the game with a late penalty. After the match, the Italian dedicated the goal to Seedorf, who is now experiencing his first managerial job after only returning from playing a few days ago.

This victory helped Milan move to 11th place in the table and it was only their third in the last 12 matches. The possibility of qualifying for the Champions League still remains, but it is difficult hope with 18 points separating them from Napoli – the team occupying the final qualifying spot.

Seedorf brought an end to 22 years of playing in order to become the manager of Milan.

"I am happy for the squad, as there is a lot of work to do and a win helps to make it all feel easier. We didn't have much time to prepare for this game over the last few days, but the players did very well to put pressure on Hellas and to keep our rivals in their own half. Although we won thanks to a penalty, I still believe we deserved the win considering our overall performance. We are all responsible for every result," said Seedorf.
