AC Milan recently brought in Andrea Bertolacci from Genoa for around € 20 million and the new signings says that the club should do well in the upcoming season at all costs.
After years of mediocrity, Milan are in danger of losing their reputation as one of the top clubs in the world, according toBertolacci, if they do not act quickly. The club recently sacked manager Filippo Inzaghi after finishing in a disappointing 10th place last season. As a result, the club will have no form of European football to look forward to in the upcoming season.
Bertolacci is one of the several big-money signings made by Milan in the summer. This is unlike in recent years when the club has been largely looking forward to bringing in free transfers or deals. Milan have signed only a few expensive players in their history, andBertolacci becomes one of them. Only the likes of Clarence Seedorf, Ronaldinho, and Rui Costa have cost more than the 24-year-old. Since he is just entering into the prime of his career, Milan will be hoping to see the best fromBertolacci for several years. He made six goals in the 33 appearances over all competitions.
These statistics are likely to improve when he plays at Milan.”I’m so eager to start, do well and enjoy myself.We must have a good season and there is the chance to do that.I’ve spoken with the coach and he told me that we have to have a great league campaign. I am really motivated,” said the new signing. Milan will be involved in friendly matches over the next few weeks. They recently suffered a 2-1 defeat against Lyon in a friendly match, but there are possibilities of recovering when they take on the likes of Real Madrid and Inter in the next few weeks.
