ADRIANO GALLIANI says more young players should be included in the first team.
Ever since the Champions League victory in 2007, Milan are often referred as an “Old Team” as many members have been playing regularly close to a decade now, but Milan already said they want to change it.
The Rossoneri brought in Massimiliano Allegri, a young coach, who often used youngsters (Davide Astori, Robert Acquafresca, Daniele Ragatzu etc.) at Cagliari in order to kick off the revolution at the via Turati club.
Kevin-Prince Boateng, Ignazio Abate and Alexandre Pato, rather young players, played a key part in Milan’s success last year, with the likes of Alexander Merkel and Rodney Strasser given chances to prove their worth. Adriano Galliani says Milan are moving towards rejuvenation, and more youngsters should play.
“We are moving forward on this line, and we need to include young people in the first team, [Mattia] De Sciglio, in my view, will soon make his debut start and other players are growing. This is the path that Italian clubs must take. It is a choice of the heart, but also an obligation,” he said as reported by Milannews.it.
Stephan El Shaarawy arrived and Milan have big hopes for him and with Mattia De Sciglio and Mattia Valoti promoted to the first team, Milan’s intention is clear, though the younger men don’t play as much.
