Fabio Capello believes Milan can be ‘competitive’ in the Champions League with a couple of new signings after winning the Scudetto.
The Rossoneri took the Serie A title for the first time in 11 years, beating Inter to top spot on 86 points to 84.
That also means they will be in Pot 1 for the Champions League draw in the 2022-23 group stage, which ought to give them a more favourable set of opponents, at least on paper.
“Milan can no longer hide in the Champions League now, considering their results,” former Rossoneri chief Capello told Sky Sport Italia.
“The defence was solid, the forward line has got back to scoring goals in the last few weeks and many of their players are reaching maturity.
“With two or three good additions, Milan can be competitive in Europe.”
They have already secured Divock Origi as a free agent and he will have his medical after Liverpool’s Champions League Final against Real Madrid this Saturday.
Milan were out of the Champions League for seven consecutive campaigns and this term went out in the group phase.
They remain by far the most successful Italian club in the competition, though, winning the Champions League three times and its precursor the European Cup on another four occasions.
The most recent triumph was under Carlo Ancelotti in 2006-07.
