Former Milan defender Alessandro Costacurta said Liverpool ‘deserved’ the win on Wednesday. ‘They dominated for 75 minutes. They are much stronger’.
The 55-year-old, who retired in 2007, spent 22 years at Milan and helped the club win five European Cups, seven Scudetti and one Coppa Italia.
Milan returned to the Champions League for the first time in seven years and the former centre-back and believes they have a big gap to fill before they can compete with the biggest teams in Europe.
“I didn’t see this beautiful match by Milan,” Costacurta told Sky Sport Italia. ”I think they were dominated and under pressure for 75 minutes, despite 10 excellent minutes in the first half.
“At some point you can lose your clarity and it’s easy to make mistakes. I believe Liverpool’s victory is well deserved and I think they deserved an extra goal too.
“In my opinion, Liverpool are much stronger than Milan. It’s possible to decrease this difference, but I believe it’s still very big.”
