The former AC Milan CEO claimed that if they had won the Scudetto in 2012, they would not have had to sell Zlatan Ibrahimović and Thiago Silva. They lost the Serie A championship ‘Because of Muntari’s goal.’ In the 2011-12 season, Milan lost the game against Juventus at the San Siro with a serious refereeing mistake.
“It should have been allowed and we would have won the title that season,” Galliani told Libero.
“History would have changed. We sold Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva at the end of that season, two champions who are still playing at the highest levels.
“If things would have gone differently, they may still be Milan players and we could have signed Carlitos Tevez as well who, instead, signed for Juventus. With him we would have won three Serie A titles in a row.”
Another regret of Galliani is related to the final of Istanbul and the historic comeback of Liverpool.
“It was an incredible game, we dominated it apart from those six minutes that would have been useless if an Andriy Shevchenko’s goal wouldn’t be disallowed for an inexistent offside.
“It can happen, Istanbul is the second big regret that I have even if we won the cup two years later. Liverpool would deserve to win that won but we won it with goals of Pippo Inzaghi.”
The former Milan boss also believes that Milan should not have allowed Andra Pirlo to leave.
“He is a predestined. When I saw him this summer he was the coach of Juventus U23 squad and I told him he would become the head coach soon. Three days later he was appointed. We let him leave to early, but I have other bigger regrets.”
