Vialli: Milan need a miracle

Gianluca Vialli doesn’t expect Italian giants Milan to be playing Champions League football in 2014-15.

“Milan can’t win the Scudetto,” the former Sampdoria and Juventus striker told Sky Sport Italia. “It would be a miracle if they finish Serie A in the top three…”

Vialli’s damning verdict came after the Diavolo’s 3-2 loss at Juventus on Sunday night which leaves them with just eight points from seven games.

That means the San Siro giants are already 13 points adrift of leaders Roma and 11 shy of Juventus and Napoli.

Vialli also questioned the club’s summer decision to sign Alessandro Matri from the Old Lady for a fee of €11m.

“Doubts remain about their capture of Matri,” added the former Chelsea boss.

“That money should have been spent on a new Thiago Silva, instead they gave in to the desire of boss Massimiliano Allegri.”

Matri has yet to score for the Rossoneri.
