Former Italy manager, coach Fabio Capello believes AC Milan has what it takes to make a major progress in next season’s Champions League.
Capello made this known in an interview with Sky Italia, where he commended the team’s effort to have won the Serie A title.
According to him, he says Milan finished the season worthy champions.
“Milan can no longer hide in the Champions League now, considering their results,” Capello told Sky Italia.
“The defence was solid, the forward line has got back to scoring goals in the last few weeks and many of their players are reaching maturity.
“With two or three good additions, Milan can be competitive in Europe.”
Recall that AC Milan won their first Serie A title in 11 years on Sunday after beating Sassuolo 3-0 to snatch the crown from local rivals Inter Milan.
Needing just a point to claim the Scudetto Milan swept their hosts aside thanks to an Olivier Giroud brace and another from Franck Kessie in the first half in front of an army of away fans at the Mapei Stadium.
Stefano Pioli’s Milan finished two points ahead of Inter, who beat Sampdoria 3-0 in the San Siro.
Fans partied in Milan and poured onto the pitch in Reggio Emilia as the ‘Rossoneri’ returned to the top of the Italian game after years of poor teams and financial problems since their last league crown in 2011.
Pioli’s side were imperious in winning their sixth match on the bounce and securing a title which for long tracts of the season locked like Inter’s to lose.
They were helped by a hat-trick of assists from exciting winger Rafale Leao, who has come of age this season and is reportedly a summer target for Paris Saint-Germain.
Giroud has struck some of the most important goals of Milan’s charge to the title and again showed why he is the man for the big occasion in the 17th minute.Copyright © 2023 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
