Ricardo Montolivo scored the only goal of the game to hand AC Milan a victory away to Chievo.

However they still needed to ensure three points in order [...]

If you’re a die-hard Inter Milan fan like I am, you must have been disappointed by the team’s season last year. It’s not really hard to understand what happened last season. The club made several mistakes in 2011 and unfortunately paid for most of them.

Inter Milan took a toothless Fiorentina side apart on Saturday night to claim three valuable points that see them move up to 11th in Serie A.

Maicon, Yuto Nagatomo and Lucio came into the backline while Philippe Coutinho replaced Ricky Alvarez on the left flank. The Jovetic and Montolivo-less Viola, meanwhile, handed Adem Ljajic a rare [...]
