Ancelotti believes Scudetto could open winning cycle: “As a Milan fan, I hope so”

By Oliver Fisher -

Carlo Ancelotti has once again professed his love for AC Milan and his hope that last season’s Scudetto win will be a springboard for further success.

Ancelotti is a man who needs little introduction to Milan fans given his illustrious tenure from 2001 to 2009. After being appointed as the Rossoneri’s head coach, he would go on to win the 2002–03 Champions League and 2002–03 Coppa Italia.

The following season, he won the Scudetto with a then-record of 82 points from 34 games, and then three years later he won his second Champions League with Milan by beating Liverpool in Athens.

Ancelotti spoke as part of a special on SportMediaset that Stefano Pioli was a part of, and he commented on the Scudetto that Milan won last season and the future of the club, with his comments relayed by MilanNews.

“I think it is worth a lot for him, for Milan and for Maldini, who has taken over a club with difficulties and the has brought it back to the top,” he began.

“Winning the Scudetto reopens or can reopen a cycle that was interrupted due to various vicissitudes. After Berlusconi’s departure, this team has found it difficult and I think last year’s good season could be a springboard for new successes. As a Madrid fan and a Milan fan, I hope so.”
