Serie B, Monza, Stroppa speaks: “Like being in the family”

The goal of the Brianza club is to return as protagonists in Serie B; the coach finds Berlusconi and Galliani again, the goal is an aggressive game

Clear ideas at Monza with the return of Stroppa as a coach after his happy experience as a footballer. The coach, after the promotion with Crotone only twelve months ago, finds Berlusconi and Galliani, but also the Brianza environment, with the aim of being protagonists again in Serie B.


“We are returning from the best season in the history of Monza, I would say we have laid the foundations, despite the fact that Serie A escaped us first on the last day and then for a goal in the playoffs. I think Brocchi did a good job, but now let’s move on. We chose Stroppa for the game: we have seen some matches, we like his ideas and he had Berlusconi’s blessing at the classic Arcore lunch. Now Monza is in his hands ”.


For Stroppa it is a return to origins. “Yes, in Monza it’s like being in the family. It all seems very simple: going home, finding managers who have been part of my sporting life for many years, having a team like Monza available, yet it will not be, so sure that all this will help me to be fully focused. percent in this project. We must be aware that we could find some difficulties, the championship will be practically an A2, but we will never have to lose sight of our path ”. How will Monza be? “Fighting, aggressive, willing. I want to see these guys live, then we’ll see how to improve this squad based on the characteristics I ask for my players ”.


There is no talk of modules: “Because Giovanni doesn’t like numeretti – says Galliani -, but I can say that we will have a quality team. On the market we will have to make several releases, due to the Under rule. We would have liked to have kept Frattesi, he had the agreement with Sassuolo, but the boy wants the A. So surely we will take a mezzala of the same level (probably Mattia Valoti from Spal, ed.) And then in front, who knows, the coach likes the forwards who tear. We’ll see. Now we are focused on the exits ”.


One of the occasions to see Stroppa’s new Monza on the pitch could be on July 31st at the U-Power Stadium with nothing less than Juventus. Meanwhile, in the afternoon the meeting is scheduled in Monzello and on the 10th the departure for the Ronzone retreat.
