During the 1996–97 season Milan Associazione Calcio competed in Serie A, Coppa Italia, UEFA Champions League and Supercoppa.

Summary[edit]

Milan Associazione Calcio fell into pieces once Fabio Capello left his job to join Real Madrid.[3] The new organisation with Óscar Tabárez as technical director completely miscued its signings, with neither Jesper Blomqvist, Edgar Davids, Christophe Dugarry or Michael Reiziger being successful. After a Supercoppa Italiana defeat against Fiorentina at home at the San Siro, a 2–3 loss at Piacenza for the league cost the Uruguayan his position. Tabarez was replaced by former championship winning coach Arrigo Sacchi, the change did not happen and days later due to a 2–1 defeat to Rosenborg at home in the Champions League the team was not qualified to Quarterfinals. The Rossoneri eventually finished 11th managed to save the reigning champions' contract in Serie A by just six points.

The miserable season also prompted captain Franco Baresi to end his active career, with Milan retiring the #6 shirt in his honour.[4]

  19. ^ Weah was banned from six European matches for breaking the nose of the Portuguese defender Jorge Costa in the players' tunnel. Weah said he exploded in frustration after putting up with racist tauntings from Costa during both of the teams' Champions League matches that autumn. Costa strenuously denied the accusations of racism and was not charged by UEFA as no witnesses could verify Weah's allegations, not even his Milan teammates. Weah later attempted to apologise to Costa but this was rebuffed by the Portuguese, who considered the charges of racist insults leveled against him to be defamatory and took Weah to court."Court postpones Weah trial". BBC Sport. 28 February 2001. Archived from the original on 10 September 2002. Retrieved 28 February 2001.
