Adriano Gallianito del Monzawill speak during Palladino’s press conference: “I wanted to hug Stroba, just over three months ago he took us to Serie A. It is a result that makes us proud: the thought of playing on Sunday against Juventus is something that Stroba asked me legitimately. Question: Why do you exonerate me? This Is football, when the results do not arrive the game expects that you can acquit a coach. There is no point in making moral speeches, Monza is the last in the ranking and has decided to change the technical guide We chose Rafael Palladino, he is not a navigator. He is the coach of the future, because he is very simple, He started his career very well.”
Many names were shot. Was it your first choice?
“We thought for a long time with President Berlusconi about what to do, we also thought about other coaches, we thought about others, but we chose Rafael for many reasons. We are convinced that he can perform well, he has the stigma of a great coach inside him. In these years The four, I saw what happened on the structures, we do a lot, and we found that Monza you all know, we brought it to A as promised. Then I covered all Monzello with a sentence: “It took 112 years to go to A, and we can’t take 12 months to go back to B.” “Thinking of Monza-Juventus excites me, I am a fan of Monza far from publications. I made a brave decision, I did not run for Senate because I want to devote myself to Monza full time. I want to make my contribution to maintain the category. I add that since yesterday the new goalkeeper coach He is Alfredo Magni, he was brought up by Gigio Donnarumma in Milan. Shared with the technician, I respect him a lot.”
Is Monza still aspiring to the tenth place?
“Berlusconi or I teams provide more news, but the new rookie changes a lot. It is clear that one has to enter the market massively when you are promoted to Serie A. 16 players have arrived, we must make an effort to maintain the desired goal. It’s not rank eighteen, nineteen, or twentieth.”
Did the relationship with Stroppa fall apart?
“There was a difference in performance in the second half. We didn’t do anything new in football, I say that with the emotion I have with Giovanni Strupba. I thank him for the promotion, but we decided to change the technical style as a guide.”
Is it the bravest choice to manage it?
“When I came here Sacchi called me: I read about a brave choice, but you did it with me too. We brought a coach to Milan who was not a great player and who never coached in Serie A. So much to choose. From Sacchi.”
Will the Juventus and Salernitana controversy affect Sunday’s match?
“In old football it was said they did you a favor after a foul. I didn’t believe it at that moment, let alone now. The VAR has greatly reduced fouls, technology has to be used, and all sports do it. Nothing,” Monza says. As for the referees, I do not want to join the chorus of protesters: Monza-Juventus will not be affected at least by the fact that Candreva kept Bonucci in the game or not.”
There is a similarity with Cagliari in 2008-09. Did you talk about it with Allegri?
“With Allegri I remained in great relations, when I went to Cagliari, I told him that he had a role in fitness to be Milan coach. Throughout four autumns and three springs, he has always achieved great results, then in football you win and you lose. However, the club wants to keep the category, we believe That Palladino can perform well, the confidence is long-term. I asked him if he wanted to play for Juve right away or wait for the break: he decided to leave immediately.”
