Galliani: 'Pirlo was always a coach'

Former Milan CEO Adriano Galliani explains why he was always confident new Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo would become a coach, unlike Ronaldinho, who ‘didn’t even care who we were playing.’

Pirlo has been appointed as the head coach at Juventus, despite having zero managerial experience and not even getting his full coaching badges yet.

“He was already a coach when he was playing,” Galliani told the Corriere dello Sport.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed that he could join Monza if he wanted the old Milan. ‘Adriano Galliani called me and said they were 11km away.‘

Familiar faces key to Monza promotion

Silvio Berlusconi’s Monza clinched promotion to Serie B earlier this week, with a few familiar faces playing their part.

Monza were propped up to the second tier after Serie C was ended early, but they had long sewn up first place in Group A, building up a 16-point lead over Carrarese in their 27 fulfilled fixtures.

Berlusconi bought the Biancorossi in the summer of 2018, a year after he sold Milan, and invested heavily in new players by lower-league standards.
