Watch: Milan captain Romagnoli in emotional and fitting tribute to legend Pierino Prati

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan captain Alessio Romagnoli honoured club legend Pierino Prati prior to the Rossoneri’s 2-0 win over Roma after the former striker passed away on Monday.

Prati was a versatile and incredibly talented player who was capable of playing virtually anywhere along the front-line, being deployed as both a winger and a striker.

Prati is mostly remembered for his highly successful and prolific stint under Rossoneri boss Nereo Rocco in the 60s and 70s, a spell in which he won a Serie A title, a European Cup, two Cup Winners’ Cups, an Intercontinental Cup, and two Coppa Italia titles, forming an excellent partnership with Gianni Rivera.

Alessio Romagnoli honoured Prati by laying flowers on a seat in the dugout marked by a jersey with his name as players from both teams applauded.
