Just when things were changing for the better…
Parma held Milan to a 1-1 draw at the Stadio Tardini on Saturday evening, halting the Rossoneri in their tracks after they looked to have recovered from a poor start to the season.
Stephan El Shaarawy, who was Milan’s hero in their midweek 2-0 win over Cagliari, put Massimiliano Allegri’s side in front early in the second half but Daniele Galloppa equalized in the 66th minute to earn Roberto Donadoni’s side a point, which leaves them just a point behind their visitors.
The possibility that club president Silvio Berlusconi could remove coach Massimiliano Allegri has not been revived. However, at the top of the table, Juventus moved three points ahead of Napoli, which visits Sampdoria on Sunday. Roma is eight points back. Milan, which has just two wins in six matches, fell nine points behind.
Another reason for Milan’s struggle is stars’ poor form. One of them is Ghanaian midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng, who has been rated as the worst firing player in the top leagues of Europe.
Respected football statistics WhoScored took statistics from Europe’s top 5 leagues since the start of the season to make its revelation. Out of 5 appearances (one in suspension), Boateng fired 26 times at goal without scoring which put him top of the ill-famed list.
“Most shots without scoring in the top 5 leagues this season: KP Boateng 21, S Diarra 16, F Guarin 15, A Cejudo/Lass 14, A Ayew/L Karaboue 13,” Whoscored tweeted.
