Italian journalist and TV Presenter Paolo Bargiggi has labelled AC Monza duo Kevin Prince Boateng and Mario Balotelli as useless purchases by the club.
AC Monza have struggled in recent times, winning just a game in their last five games, which has seen the ambitious club drop from second ti fifth on the serie B table.
Boateng and Balotelli have not been in the best of forms despite their huge salaries.
Paolo Bargiggi believes the promotion chasers are wasting money on the "useless" duo.
"It doesn't pay to be animated by nostalgia and the media effect. Boateng and Balotelli, especially the latter, turned out to be two useless and expensive purchases,” he said.
“Brocchi still on the bench doesn't even know how to equalize anymore. A nightmare path for those aiming at direct promotion."
Monza are flirting with playoffs position but could miss out if they don't find their early season form.
