Galliani: 'Better than the Scudetto'

Adriano Galliani maintains beating Inter to the Super Cup in Beijing “was better than the Scudetto, but I punched a board and cut my hand open.”

The Rossoneri fought back from a goal down to win 2-1 at the Bird's Nest Stadium on Saturday.

“It was a stronger emotion than I felt when we won the Scudetto against Roma, as we were almost prepared for that result,” said the Vice-President.

“At the second goal I punched an advertising board and cut my hand open. We must also thanks the Chinese fans, who were absolutely fantastic throughout our stay.

“I had a few reservations about playing the local derby so far away, but it was a wonderful experience.”

Milan have won the Italian Super Cup six times – more than any other club – although they hadn't lifted it since 2004.

“This is our 15th Italian piece of silverware, plus 13 internationals, which means Milan have won 28 trophies in 26 years of President Silvio Berlusconi's rule. I called the President and he was very happy.”
