Brocchi becomes new Brescia coach; admits Milan is a ‘wonderful family’

By Oliver Fisher -

Ex-Milan coach Cristian Brocchi has today been confirmed as the new boss of Brescia in Serie B.

Despite a poor end to the season, president Berlusconi was reportedly keen on keeping the former Lazio man as coach, but Brocchi admits he didn’t have support on his side.

“I have a very particular personality and am a very humble person,” said Brocchi at today’s Brescia Press conference.

“As a player I achieved great things by starting from the bottom. I found myself in an important family like Milan, a wonderful adventure in the youth academy and had the good fortune to become Coach of the senior squad.

“It is fundamental for me to feel supported, so people have confidence in me. We did not have the right conditions to continue, so my decision to walk away was right for the good of the club and the good of Berlusconi.

“I would not have worked without the right sense of calm. I wanted to show what I can do without prejudice. I am very happy to have become the Coach of Brescia, a club that is very important in my life.

“I want to bring my ideas to the locker room with the hope of finding the right synchronicity and achieving success.”
