Former defender Alessandro Nesta has praised AC Milan director and old team-mate Paolo Maldini for the value he has added to the club’s project.
The strength of Milan’s vision has been discussed at length in the wake of their Scudetto win last season, in which the Rossoneri managed to end their title drought despite not spending the most on the transfer market and having a lower wage budget than that of their rivals.
Now, Milan have an exciting young core with players such as Fikayo Tomori, Pierre Kalulu, Theo Hernandez, Ismael Bennacer, Sandro Tonali and Rafael Leao, all of whom were purchased from other clubs for fees not considered exorbitant in today’s market.
Speaking on the sidelines of the event at the VAR centre in Lissone, Nesta was asked about the season Milan are having so far and what he thinks of the current state that the club are in, with his comments relayed by SempreMilan.it.
“It’s a very interesting project, I follow the work of my friend Paolo Maldini who is one of the architects of this miracle,” he said.
“A miracle in the sense that once upon a time a lot was spent, while today you have to look for a youngster and understand that in a few years he will have a certain potential and a certain value. And Milan are doing this very well. And then they have players who are functional to Pioli’s ideas.”
