Former Milan CEO Adriano Galliani reflects on signing Andrea Pirlo, noting that he signed Filippo Inzaghi on the same day.
Pirlo received the Facchetti Award this afternoon, and a host of former teammates and directors paid tribute to him.
Galliani signed the midfielder from Inter in 2001, as part of a complex series of transfers between the city rivals.
Pirlo, Cristian Brocchi and Matteo Bogani joined the Rossoneri, while Dražen Brnčić, Guly and Paolo Ginestra went the other way, essentially creating a break-even situation for both clubs.
