Cristian Brocchi is looking forward to his new adventure after he landed a coaching job in the Milan youth sector.
The midfielder, born in 1976, has ended his playing days and will take charge of the Rossoneri Allievi in the new campaign.
“I’m very happy with the opportunity which I have been given to start down this path,” Brocchi told Sky Sport Italia.
“However, there is no certainty that a playing past will see you transform into a good Coach.”
Brocchi is back with Milan, where he started his career, after five years in the capital with Lazio.
“I’ve left the Lazio fans who loved me,” added the former Verona, Inter and Fiorentina man. “I’ll never forget them.”
