Most of the team – but also the ultra of the Curva Sud – left the Meazza quickly, while those who had families in tow remained during the match against Inter.
Next Sunday the problem will not arise. Whatever way it will end in Reggio Emilia, Milan will return to their city after having faced the most crucial crossroads of the year: will the god of football indicate celebration or tragedy? But if nothing else, unlike what could have happened yesterday, the contemporaneity with Inter-Sampdoria will immediately give clarity to everyone at the stroke of the ninetieth. In the event of a Scudetto it will be a big party in the city – team, coach and managers in some clubs, fans in the square and, perhaps, inside San Siro if there are the conditions to do so -, otherwise the break lines and goodbye will arrive immediately. at the July rally.
Last night there was a lot of curiosity about what the players would do once the match against Atalanta was over. In case of victory, or in any case without defeat, of course. Will they stay at San Siro to see Inter? Will they return to the retreat hotel? Everyone home until 10.30 pm and then you can see how it went in Cagliari? In reality, there is no great “literature” on the matter, for the simple reason that superstition prevailed at any latitude in the Rossoneri world. What really mattered, the essential condition, was only to snatch the three points from the Goddess. And so the Curva Sud, once it left San Siro, immediately dissolved the ranks.
The Rossoneri players, on the other hand, have taken different paths. Most left the Meazza on their own, some returning home and some stopping at the restaurant, while some stayed to dine inside the Meazza. No more than a dozen players, especially those with family in tow. At the end of the game, in fact, some players (for example Maignan, Florenzi, Kjaer) had brought their youngest children to the San Siro lawn to make them have some fun. However fast dinner, no more than twenty minutes to half an hour, throwing an eye on the first half of Cagliari, and then definitively leaving a stadium that gave an absolute spectacle for at least three hours. After all, it could have been fine like this.
