Former Italy coach Cesare Prandelli feels for Marco Giampaolo after his dismissal by AC Milan.
Prandelli says the players were not up to Giampaolo's demands.
“Seeing the team from the outside, I did develop a theory as to why things went so wrong," Prandelli told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Giampaolo loves a reasoned-out style of football that follows certain patterns, whereas all their players are instinctive and don't follow tactics.
“It becomes difficult at that point to find some common ground. Having said all that, Giampaolo 100 per cent deserves his tag as a great Coach in Italian football, it's just this squad didn't suit his ideas."
