“I immediately say one thing. Some time ago I made a prophecy, pessimistic. I said that much water would have to pass under the bridge before that an Italian came back to win the Champions League. Now I have to revise that prediction. I believe there is less time to wait, I see encouraging signs on the part of our football. It is no longer time for Cinderellas, because last season did dream Borussia and Borussia is hardly a surprise in European football.
But there are teams that are growing, such as Manchester City, or who have rebuilt just as did the Borussia. We Italians, we should not be afraid of the economic differences that separate us from the biggest clubs in the continent: we must try to compensate with the tactical organization, the mentality, the idea of making something beautiful and the desire to surprise.
We somatized the first season of the Champions League after a sabbatical year, have arrived important reinforcements, ditto Milan who finds a champion like Kaká who is an idol and has won everything in the Rossoneri and especially Naples – I make a joke – unfortunately sold Cavani in the sense that it has sold its star to buy an impressive array of players starting from two who put it inside the net as Higuain and Callejon. “
