Galliani avalanche: the tears for Monza, Dybala, the Real offer for Sheva, the “regret Baggio”

The CEO of the red and white club interviewed by Garlando at the Teatro Sociale in Trento is a river in flood: “The tears after Juve? The minimum wage …”. Then a lot of Milan, from Kakà to Ronaldinho to Maldini. And on Allegri: “Football is cyclical”

From our correspondent Valerio Piccioni

“The tears after the victory with Juve? Excuse me, my mother used to take me to the stadium to see Monza when I was 5. It was and is an endless love story, a few tears are the minimum wage.” Adriano Galliani is very inspired, however, in the audience of the Teatro Sociale di Trento he also tells of the victory he experienced far from the stadium, in the Duomo of Monza “where an elderly lady told me: ‘We beat Juventus!'”. He had “escaped” from the stadium. Then came a shower of compliments. “Even those of Ancelotti. We talk often with Carletto, he had to play with Atletico and I told him if he was worried. And he: no, I was worried about Monza-Juve …”.


Galliani is an overflowing journey in the midst of many years of football and AC Milan, but the news is always there. Excuse me, asks Luigi Garlando who is interviewing him on the opening day of the Sport Festival, but is it true that you could have caught Icardi at Monza? “No, there has never been this possibility. President Berlusconi was pushing very hard for Dybala, I spoke to the agent but the player wanted a team of a different name from that of Monza”.


Galliani is a myriad of stories and characters from the football market. That of the Monza CEO is a burst from behind the scenes. It turns out that Florentino Perez had offered 110 billion lire to bring Shevchenko to Real Madrid and Berlusconi’s no diverted him to Turin to buy Zidane. And then Roberto Baggio, “who could have come to Milan five years earlier, in 1990. We had the contract signed, we made a beau geste, but the regrets remain”. Another icon: Kaka. “The last golden ball of a footballer in the Italian league. About him I just want to remember the phone call, unique in the world, from Rui Costa. 15 days after the arrival of his new teammate he called me and said: ‘I’m sorry but I have to go away. Kaka is too much stronger than me ‘”. Galliani confesses instead a wish: “Ronaldinho would beat him. With his talent he could have played until he was 60 if he hadn’t been so … pleasure-seeker among music, fair sex and ice-cold beers. The strongest, however, was Van Basten”.


Thirty-one years of Milan cannot be forgotten. But why did Paolo Maldini only join the company when you and Berlusconi left? “Maldini is Milan. I have great affection for him, I offered him all the roles except mine and that of Berlusconi. He has always refused but perhaps it was even better, who knows, there is a moment for all things” .


Just turn your gaze a little towards the championship and a question arises away from home: would Allegri have changed him with a team that plays so badly? “I love Allegri. But first of all I say: look what he won, let’s not joke. I believe that sometimes football is cyclical: it is nobody’s fault if the wheel does not turn, in different periods it has also happened to Real Madrid and Manchester United. And now it happens to Juve. ” But do you know that Milan-Monza will be in exactly one month? “I will see you from the usual place, I will not rejoice. Milan is always inside me, but now I am committed to Monza 24 hours a day. Also because in the locker room I had this sentence posted: ‘It took 110 years to get to the series A, we can’t go back in 12 months’ “.
