Former AC Milan boss Fabio Capello has backed the Rossoneri’s project ahead of the 2021-22 season, as the Rossoneri look to build off last season’s finish.
Milan were on their way to their first title in over a decade but fell midway to disappointing performances as the season came to a close – giving away the pole position to Inter – but the feeling is that they are in with a chance of winning it next season.
The former Rossoneri manager, speaking to the microphones of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), commented on the potential of the first team players.
“Milan have a project underway. Giroud is a forward of international standing. I expect the explosion of a talent with enormous potential like Leao. Tonali must show signs of growth,” he said.
Prodigy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma’s departure to Paris Saint-Germain arrived as his contract with the club expired. Capello pointed at the fact that the club deserved more respect and gratitude from the Euro 2020 Player of the Tournament, for who he made well over 250 appearances in the space of six years.
Capello said: “We need to evaluate the effects of Donnarumma’s departure. He married a club that is now being talked about all over the world, but Milan deserved more gratitude.”
Milan will begin their Serie A journey against Sampdoria on August 23.
