Tassotti backs AC Milan sale: Club was being left behind

AC Milan icon Mauro Tassotti feels the sale of the club is the right decision.

Tassotti admits the game was passing Milan by in its current form.

“The club no longer spend as much as money and aren't bold in the transfer market as they were before," the Ukraine assistant told Sportarena.

“Plus the competition has increased as there were sheikhs and rich clubs like PSG, Manchester City.

“They're able to spend a lot of money on players, and with them it's very difficult to compete. It's hard to be rivals with clubs who spend €150m.

“Of course, mistakes were made in the management of the club, but they were normal.

“You can't afford to make mistakes when you have only a little money, but it's impossible [not to].

“Berlusconi is the greatest President in the history of Milan and Italian football. He was there for many years and has a great passion for Milan.

“But in recent years, the situation has been very unclear and no-one knew whether or not the club would be sold.

“The sale is good news as there's no more of this confusion or misunderstanding of what to expect. In the last transfer window, there wasn't a lot of signings, but maybe the new owners will buy good players."
