Over the years, perhaps not as much recently, we have seen some very good players wear the AC Milan shirt. It might not be the biggest club anymore, but the history certainly remains.
Ariedo Braida, former CEO and sporting director of Milan, was one of the men responsible for bringing some of the best players to the club. Currently, he’s the CEO of Serie B side Cremonese, following a four-year tenure at Barcelona.
In an interview with Radio Sei, as cited by LaLazioSiamoNoi, the 75-year-old spoke about the Rossoneri and the negotiations he’s most proud of. It goes without saying that he had some big names to choose between.
“Berlusconi showed up one day as soon as he bought Milan and said ‘we must become the strongest team in the world’ and we followed him. He is a visionary, I also tried to work together with Galliani to find the best players. In football, insights are also needed. The negotiations I’m most attached to are those of Van Basten and Jean-Pierre Papin,” he stated.
We can only hope that Milan finally are on the right path as they need to be one of the top clubs in the world. This season will be very telling, as confirming their Champions League spot would be a big signal.
