1 goal: hakan’s and saladmaker’s triangle passes set theo free on left flank before he got tackled inside pen box.
2nd goal: hakan’s shot caused a handball that practically sealed ucl ticket for milan
yet this uninitiated still bitched about hakan because his pretty boy szoboszlai wouldnt join milan. has szo even played yet for leipzig? so u want milan to replace hakan with injured player? lol pathetic

And sadly, I also hope we will find a good manager next season.

What a relief. We didn’t score from open play but a win is a win. We worked hard for it. our defensive tactics was top class.

2nd place after leading the table for most of the season is deserved. A failure would have been a disaster. Now let’s strengthen the squad for next season.

Im nearly crying here its been so long since we played in the cl and we will now also presumably have a great transfer window as well while also propably renewing donnarummas contract as it should be.. Kessie the real lion of milano, time to give him a new and long term contract. Cant say i enjoyed the match much as it was too nerve wrecking for my taste.

I completely disagree it would have been far better if juventus hadnt qualified because they already has a worse financial year than milan and to see them not qualifying could have meant they would have had to downside their squad which again would have given us better opportunities next season. Add to that juve might even have been able to keep the portugese player because he nearly joined us in 17 when we still only would play in europa league and besides of that there could have even been a need to offload some players and that could have meant… Read more »

Now, try to get these deals done ASAP:

1. LW – Memphis Depay ~ FREE AGENT
2. CF – Mauro Icardi ~ £35 million
3. RW – Florian Thauvin ~ FREE AGENT
4. AM – Rodrigo De Paul ~ £40 million

The thauvin transfer was kinda of a bomb and propably surprised everyone but it seems to be down to high salary demands not that i would have guess that mexican teams would have such leverage.Im sure icardi would do great for us so i wouldnt oppose the idea but depending on wage demands and potential fee involved.

Don’t forget we didn’t spend damn near anything in June and Jan. We have a crap ton to spend now
