Giancarlo Capelli, one of the leaders of the Curva Sud, hopes for more signings and is pleased with the level of enthusiasm the fans have.
About 5000 fans, led by the Curva Sud, were at the Diavolo training center Milanello yesterday for the first day of training, showing their support to the new management and the old & new players.
Billy Costacurta compared yesterday’s scenes to the start of the Silvio Berlusconi era and Curva leader Capelli – nicknamed il Barone – says the fans deserve this.
“The enthusiasm at Milanello? It was great to see so euphoria yesterday: boys, children, whole families, already present from the morning,” il Barone told Milannews.it today. “It’s been years since we saw such euphoria, we hope there will also be euphoria in the stands. We hope that there will be another purchase, Montella said that the team is not yet complete. We are pleased that there is enthusiasm because us Milanisti fans deserve it after years of sacrifices and disappointments.
“The new leadership? It’s important to be serious and be professional at work. They give the impression that there’s desire for revenge that the Rossoneri people, who in recent years have had to suffer so much anguish want. The important thing is to create a great Milan. Season tickets? The prices should remain unchanged and this is an honor for this leadership.
“Gianluigi Donnarumma [who will renew soon]? We evaluate things, we look forward to seeing how things are going to end. We’ll decide as fans how to act with him. The position of De Sciglio to leave the club? I was hoping that he’d become the future captain of Milan – I still do. I’m sorry that he doesn’t want to stay at Milan. If someone doesn’t believe in [Milan] then it’s better he goes away.”
Milan’s first pre-season friendly is on the 11th of July against Swiss side Lugano. The first competitive match is a Europa League third round qualification encounter on the 27th of July.
