WHO WAS the best Milan player in the 2012/2013 season?
The season has come to a conclusion and Milan finished the season in the third place thanks to a great comeback in the second half of the season. Milan started the season in horribly but picked themselves up and finished in a UCL spot.
There will be some changes in the summer, perhaps even in the coach position, but now it’s time to reflect on the passing season and pick the best Rossoneri player of the 2012/2013 season. So who was the best Milan player in this year?
The only player who’s already confirmed for next season among those who have expiring contracts is Christian Abbiati. Abbiati had a great season and he won Milan many points and was certainly one of the best players this season. Another player who had a good impressive season in defense is Philippe Mexes who scored the most important goal of the year.
Mattia De Sciglio was certainly one of the revelations of the season in Serie A and his excellent performances for Milan gave him his Italy debut. Riccardo Montolivo was without a shadow of a doubt the most important player in Milan’s midfield, as he was the only one who could offer creativity. Stephan El Shaarawy started the season very well and carried Milan on his back in the 1st half of the season, and although he slowed down in the 2nd half of the year, he was still good.
It’s now safe to say that Milan won the Giampaolo Pazzini-Antonio Cassano swap; Pazzini scored 15 Serie A goals for Milan and won them some very important points. Super Mario Balotelli joined the team in January but stole the headlines immediately and mostly for the right reasons too as he managed to score 12 goals in the 13 games in which he played.
Who is your pick for Player of the Season? or many the best figure wasn’t even a player – but coach Massimiliano Allegri who is getting a lot of credit from the players for Milan’s big comeback this season as they went from 15th to 3rd.
