WHISPER IT BUT the good times could slowly be returning for AC Milan.

Their last Scudetto came in 2011 and ever since it’s been one disaster after another. But this evening, they comfortably got the better of lowly Alessandria in their Coppa Italia semi-final second-leg to make the decider for the first time in a decade.

It still could be a Milan derby in the final but the Rossoneri will more-than-likely face Juventus instead.

The Old Lady, who are seeking to retain the trophy, face Inter in their second-leg clash tomorrow night and lead 3-0 from the first game.

It was Jeremy Menez who proved the difference at the San Siro on Tuesday night.

The French international grabbed a brace as Milan eased to a 4-0 victory over Alessandria, who ply their trade in the fourth tier of Italian football.

Alessio Romagnoli also picked up a brace while Mario Balotelli added another as Sinisa Mihajlovic’s side ran out 5-0 aggregate winners.
