LIVE TMW – Galliani: “Palladino brave choice as Sacchi. Stroppa? This is football” –


Adriano Gallianito del Monzawill speak during the Palladino presentation press conference.

14.03 – The intervention of the red and white CEO has begun: “I wanted to give Stroppa a hug, just over three months ago he took us to Serie A. It is a result that makes us proud: thinking of playing on Sunday against Juventus is Stroppa asked me a legitimate question: why do you exonerate me? Football is this, when the results do not arrive the game foresees that you can exonerate a coach. It is useless to make ethical speeches, Monza is last in the standings and has decided to change the technical guide. We chose Raffaele Palladino, he is not a ferryman. He is the coach of the future, because he is very simple, he started his career very well “.

Many names have been shot. Was it your first choice?
“We thought for a long time with President Berlusconi about what to do, we also thought of other coaches, we reasoned with others, but we chose Raffaele for many reasons. We are convinced that he can do well, he has the stigmata of the great coach within him. in these four years you have seen what happened to the structures, we are doing a lot, we found that Monza that you all knew, we brought it to A as we promised. Then I covered all Monzello with a sentence: “It took us 112 years to going to Serie A, we can’t take 12 months to get back to Serie B. “Thinking about Monza-Juventus excites me, I’m a fan of Monza beyond the posts. I made a courageous decision, I didn’t run for the Senate because I want to dedicate myself to Monza full time. I want to give my contribution to maintain the category. I add that since yesterday the new goalkeeper coach is Alfredo Magni, he raised Gigio Donnarumma at Milan. It was a choice shared with the technician, I respect him a lot “.

Is Monza still aiming for tenth place after the transfer market?
“The teams of Berlusconi or myself make more news, but the newly promoted change a lot. It is clear that one must enter the market heavily when you are promoted to Serie A. 16 players have arrived, we must make an effort to maintain the coveted goal. category. The important thing is that it is not eighteenth, nineteenth or twentieth place “.

Did the relationship with Stroppa break down?
“There was a difference in performance in the second half in these first six days. However, we have not done anything new in football, I say this with the affection that binds me to Giovanni Stroppa. Thank you for the promotion, but we have considered to change the technical guide “.

Is it the bravest choice of its management?
“Coming here Sacchi called me:” I read about a courageous choice, but you did it with me too “, he told me. We brought to Milan a coach who had not been a great player and who had never coached in Serie A . I would compare this very much to Sacchi’s choice “.

Can the Juve-Salernitana controversy influence Sunday’s match?
“In old football it was said that after a wrong they did you a favor. I didn’t believe it at that moment, let alone now. The VAR has greatly reduced errors, technology must be used, all sports do it. Monza says nothing. on the referees, I do not want to join the chorus of those who protest: the referees of Monza-Juventus will not be affected in the least by the fact that Candreva has kept Bonucci in the game or not “.

This Monza has a parallel with the Cagliari of 2008-09. Have you talked about it with Allegri?
“With Allegri I remained in great relations, when I went to Cagliari I told him that he had the physique du role to be the Milan coach. For four autumns and three springs he has always achieved great results, then in football you win and lose. However, the club wants to keep the category, we believe that Palladino can do well, the confidence is long-term. I asked him if he wanted to play with Juventus immediately or wait for the break: he decided to leave immediately. “

Have you spoken to President Berlusconi? (question addressed to Palladino)
“To this I answer. I propose and the President disposes. When there is a right person, he takes her to dinner in Arcore. On Monday evening, Mr. Palladino came with me to dinner, spoke to the President and here he is. At the end of the cena became the coach of Monza “.

14.45 – Adriano Galliani’s press conference has ended.
