Adriano Galliani opens up on current state of football in Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

Former AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani has revealed his desire for both Milan clubs to get back to competing for the biggest trophies.

Galliani oversaw the most successful period in the Rossoneri’s history from 1986-2017, when they won five European Cups/Champions Leagues and eight Serie A titles.

However, Milan – as well as their city rivals Inter – have struggled to hit the same highs in recent years, something ‘il Condor’ hopes will change.

“Inter won the Treble in 2010, and the following year Milan won the Scudetto. Since then, there have been eight years of Juventus domination,” he said, as per

“I hope the city of Milan can return to its golden era of the 1960s, when both teams won two European Cups.

“I hope that it also becomes the locomotive of Italy in football terms, as it has in terms of the economy.”

Galliani is still working with Silvio Berlusconi, who owned Milan for over 30 years, and his current side Monza will take on Vincenzo Montella’s Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia on Sunday night.

“I’m emotionally attached to Vincenzo, who is the last coach to lift a trophy with Milan,” Galliani continues.

“I still have the picture on my phone of when we lifted the Supercoppa in Doha in 2016. We’ll go out at the Franchi taking everything in our stride.”
