Prandelli: 'Brocchi has Milan destiny'

Cesare Prandelli believes Cristian Brocchi “can do really well at Milan. I think he was destined for greatness.”

The former midfielder was appointed yesterday after Sinisa Mihajlovic’s dismissal, gaining promotion from the Primavera youth team.

“Brocchi was the first signing I made at Verona,” Prandelli told

“As a player he was tactically intuitive, starting his journey wide and then eventually able to feature in any midfield role.

“He was a very altruistic player, generous and very sharp, someone who always relished confrontation.

“Brocchi can do really well at Milan and I think he was destined for greatness. He always studied football a great deal and will continue to do so.

“He loves an exchange of ideas, but I am sure he’ll be able to bring forward his own ideas to get the best out of the players at his disposal.

“He has a great quality that not all Coaches possess, which is the ability to read the game very well. He can make the most of this chance, despite it being a complicated start.

“I wish you all the luck in the world, Cristian, as you’ll need that too.”
