Pagelle: Rating the champions

Milan are champions of Italy for the first time since 2004. Football Italia rates the performances of the players that made it happen

Christian Abbiati

Arguably enjoyed one of his best and most consistent seasons in a Milan shirt, Abbiati has been a reliable last line of defence for the Diavolo. Some games have seen minimal involvement, but his levels of concentration and an injury-free run has seen him contribute greatly to the best defensive record in the League. 9/10

Thiago Silva and Abate celebrate

Thiago Silva and Ignazio Abate were rocks of the Milan defence this season and are already looking ahead to the Champions League.

“This is a highly-competitive side and I always believed, but only on this evening did I realise we could do it,” said Thiago Silva of their 0-0 draw with Roma that clinched the Scudetto.

“It's truly difficult to win in Serie A, so all of us deserve praise. There is no stand-out player, as we all did well and can all celebrate.

Pirlo: 'We'll see if I'm still at Milan'

Andrea Pirlo struck a melancholy note in the Scudetto celebrations. “We'll see if I'm at Milan next season.”

The midfielder has barely featured this term due to injuries, but his contract expires in June and it does not look as if a renewal will be offered.

“The whole season has been unlucky for me, but this title party makes up for that,” said the World Cup winner.

“Massimiliano Allegri did a great job of finding the right mix to win a difficult tournament.

Inzaghi: 'Another year at Milan'

Pippo Inzaghi hopes to play on for another year after his devastating injury. “I intend to renew my contract with Milan.”

The striker scored some crucial goals in the early part of the campaign, but has been out of action since tearing the anterior cruciate ligament and external meniscus ligament in his left knee on November 10.

“I would like to take part in next season's celebrations too,” said SuperPippo after the 18th Scudetto party.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has assured fans that “I want to stay at Milan for a long time” and Antonio Cassano calls him “a beast!”

The Rossoneri celebrated long into the night after a 0-0 draw at Roma clinched the Scudetto last night.

“When I first arrived, I promised the Scudetto and once again I kept my word,” smiled the Swede.

“Perhaps some will leave next season, but certainly not me. I have no intention of leaving, as I want to stay at Milan for a long time.”

Allegri 'doesn't want Pirlo'

Assistant manager Mauro Tassotti confirms Andrea Pirlo is no longer required at Milan. “Max Allegri wants different characteristics.”

Veteran Pirlo's contract expires on June 30 and it does not look as if he will be offered an extension.

“Allegri wants a player with more defensive characteristics compared to Andrea when sitting in front of the defence,” said Tassotti during the Scudetto celebrations.

Berlusconi to build 'a young Milan'

Barbara Berlusconi has set the scene for “another 25 years of success” at Milan and drops the old guard. “We're focusing on youth.”

The daughter of President Silvio Berlusconi was appointed to the Board of Directors a few weeks ago and was in the stands for last night's 0-0 draw with Roma.

“I am very happy that we have achieved this objective, but it must be a starting point to build a new Milan,” she told the Corriere dello Sport.

The Complete Milan

The Old Guard and summer spending spree got Milan on top, but Susy Campanale argues it's the January strategy that kept them there

Few can dispute Milan's 18th Scudetto, as they have been on top of the table continuously since November 10 and beat both Inter and Napoli twice. There have been a few hiccups, as is inevitable in such a competitive League, but in terms of consistency they have been a step above. That is frankly unusual for the Rossoneri and can be put down to a very intelligent mid-season transfer strategy.

Inter fight Milan for Hulk

Inter are set to spark another transfer market derby with Milan after reportedly entering negotiations for Porto star Hulk.

Rossoneri Vice-President Adriano Galliani declared this week that his club was “interested” in the Brazilian centre-forward.

However, Porto slammed the door on this option, as they are still smarting from the shock collapse of Aly Cissokho's move to Milan a few summers ago.
