"Thank you for your birthday wishes (he turns 71 today), but birthdays are celebrated until a certain age and I think I got over that age. I remember there was a surprise party that was organized by Florentino Perez in 2002, we were in Madrid to celebrate Real's century, Bayern and Liverpool also participated in the organization. That year went well, because at the end of the season we won the Champions League against Juventus. The gift I would like to receive? A pleasing season for Milan, with qualification to the Champions League."
dreamed of becoming the president of AC
Monza, the city where I was born. I was in love with child I I didn't have
the quality to be a footballer. As Humphrey Bogart says in Casablanca “never
make plans that far ahead.". I now would like to take care of Milan, then
I'll go to the beach in Rio [Brazil]. My resignation two years ago? Again, as Humphrey
Bogart says "That's so long ago, I don't remember." football but
"Are these the most difficult months since I came to Milan? Absolutely yes, but in life you have to look forward and not think about the past. Barbara had to take on some roles. It was a normal situation, the new structure was decided by the President. We first
responsibilities between the two of us. Accepted with difficulty? For me, yes.
It was a little hard for accepted then we are now in full agreement. Would I have
gotten me but from Milan? I am not an employee at Milan, I'm a
director and a director doesn't get a severance payment when he leaves. big severance pay
When will Mr. Bee
Milan? For this question you need to
meet with the owners. If I don't want to have a strong sporting director enter the
club? I don't see the problem. This is my 30 in th at Milan and I
have a lot of relations and believe that I can handle year .
I also have Rocco Maiorino who is the head of scouting system and I decide
everything with the coach, following the advice of the president. Anyways
Milan's transfer market was the sporting director from 1986 till 2013." Braida
My relationship with Maldini is good. Paolo is a Milan legend, I never had any problem with him and I have no preclusion about him. I had offered him to be the manager of Milan's youth sector with a wide influence, but he refused. My biggest mistake? Letting Pirlo leave. It was my error in the partnership with others, don't ask me who. The choice of Mihajlovic is a signal of discontinuity to the few previous years, he has all the characteristics we need at Milanello now, and he reminds me of Capello. Why did I have a hopeless trip to Madrid for Ancelotti? It wasn't hopeless; Ancelotti was very tempted to return to Milan. The main reason he didn't come back was his surgery that would force him to stay for two months out."
"Ibrahimovic is under contract with PSG until June 30, 2016, there is nothing else to say. Romagnoli? We offered Roma €25m but if they don't want to sell him they won't sell him, if he doesn't come we'll remain as we are. Can this Milan compete for the Scudetto? We believe that it may be a Milan that can compete with other big teams for the first three places. This Milan changed the coach, technical staff and ten new players between new signings, players returning and players promoted from the Primavera. Milan has for many years without a
( regista in front of the defense)? Not
true, De Jong and Montolivo have the necessary characteristics. Few teams have
a midfielder like Pirlo. Why did we extend the contracts of Mexes and De Jong?
Because they can still give a lot, and they have regista that in the last derby
in China." showed
"Having limited resources in recent markets? I wouldn’t say it’s been frustrating, every market has different dynamics. Money and investment are important, but they don’t guarantee results. Jackson Martinez? He chose Atletico Madrid. But we are happy because we have Bacca: great player, coached by a talented man in Sevilla; and yes, Emery was a strong contender for Milan last year."
"At the dinner at Arcore between the President and Mihajlovic, they both came to an agreement to use the 4-3-1-2 with 2 strikers. Thus, Adriano and
will play together. He then decided to move Menez on
the Bacca and to try El Shaarawy as a left frontline – to which he first
agreed. However, when the offer from Monaco came, his preference was to leave.
Failing to qualify for the Champions League for the third year in a row
wouldn’t be the end of the world, but definitely a failure of sorts." midfielder
"The President & I? With the
relationship prior to football that dates back to November 1979. Since that day
we have always been in tune. Do we disagree? We talk a lot, always. And at the
end these conversations, we find ourselves in agreement. The President is
democratic, he does not rely on his authority, but seeks to convince by reasoning.
The hardest thing I tried to convince him of president, I the confirmation of Allegri in
the summer of 2013. Of course, due to a terrible run in form, Allegri was
eventually sacked in January 2014." was

brought many changes." ago but
"Would I give up this success to start over again 30 years ago? Absolutely not. It will be hard to do 8 Champions League finals in 18 years as it happened the Milan of Berlusconi. It will be impossible for any Italian team."
"How much have I enjoyed life on a scale of 1-10? I do not like the term enjoyed, I prefer to live life. How much I understand football on a scale of 1-10? Football is like a religion and has joyful mysteries as well as sorrowful mysteries. I have not yet figured it out after 30 years. How sincere was I in this interview? Ten."
"The best Milan team? I’ll put down the players who have given the most to the club over the years. Rossi in
record remains unbeaten. Of course it will have Tassotti, Costacurta, Baresi
and Maldini in defense. It will have Pirlo, Rijkaard and Seedorf as the
goal with Gullit and Kaka as attacking midfielders. Then there’ll be
Shevchenko, midfielders Basten and Inzaghi up front. The best Milan coaches were
Sacchi, Capello and Ancelotti.” van
