Braida: ‘Milan will win the Scudetto’

by | Oct 11, 2021 20:50

Former Milan director Ariedo Braida believes the Rossoneri will win the Serie A title this season: ‘Paolo Maldini and Stefano Pioli have done an extraordinary job.’

Braida spent more than 20 years at Milan.

He was appointed general director in 1986 and, from 2002 until 2013 he served as the club’s sporting director.

He then moved to Barcelona, where he worked as ‘international sporting director’ in charge of negotiations with foreign clubs.

“I think Milan will win the title this season, Maldini and Pioli are doing an extraordinary job,” Braida told GR Parlamento, as quoted by Tuttomercatoweb.

“Zlatan Ibrahimovic will still be decisive even if time passes for everyone and now he often has physical issues.

“I am convinced that continuing with the same coach is essential because you have to start from scratch every time you change it.”

The Rossoneri sit second in the Serie A table, just two points off leaders Napoli.

After the break, Pioli’s side hosts Hellas Verona at San Siro before meeting Bologna, Torino, Roma and Inter.

They didn’t have a great start in their first Champions League campaign in seven years as they lost both their opening matches against Liverpool and Atletico Madrid.

    Calm down, it’s October lol.

    The amount of people making “they will” predictions this early on is laughable.

    I’m loving this. Imo our only challenge this season is Napoli and I’m definite we’d score at least four points against them. FORZA MILAN

    Yeah right! Like last year and everything went south after the new year. Pioli is not a coach you win scudetto with.

    I agree with all Alle said except the part saying ‘Pioli is not a coach you win Scudetto with’.

    I can vividly remember folks saying Pioli is not a coach to guide the team to the UCL then, but where are we now?
    Lastly, Conte, Mourinho and others who are great coaches today all started from somewhere.

    Way to early to talk about the Scudetto for ANY club right now.

    It’s far too early to talk about the Scudetto, you could say we are one of the contenders for it this season, but so are Napoli/Juve/Inter. Let’s see where we are and where everyone else is at the winter break.

    I hesitate to make any predictions as of yet. Milan, Napoli and Inter all look good but none of them are safe in Europe yet so how well the squads rotate will be the determining factor into whether they are in a position to win the league. I feel all Italian clubs have to make a choice between Europe and the Italian league at some point. Inter’s choice was made for them last year. Milan couldn’t make their mind up but seemed to gamble on the Europa league and really struggled with injuries across both campaigns thereafter, even having to go as far as using Castillejo as a striker which is insanity.

    Love it love it love it! Let’s do it this year boys! Finally it might be our year! Let’s aim high and see where we land!
