Ancelotti's Milan nostalgia

Paris Saint Germain Coach Carlo Ancelotti finds the disassembly of his Champions League winning Milan side too 'sad' to talk about.

Ancelotti won the competition twice during his eight year stint in charge of the Rossoneri from 2001 to 2009.

Many of the protagonists in those successes – including Alessandro Nesta, Gennaro Gattuso and Clarence Seedorf – left the club this summer and they were followed out the door by Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who will line-up for Ancelotti's PSG in their Champions League opener against Dinamo Kiev tonight.

“I do not want talk about Milan, the final scene was sad,” the former Chelsea boss laments in an interview with Il Giornale today.
