MILAN -La Gazzetta dello Sport spoke to Mauro Tassotti: 'Galliani spoke to me at Reggio Calabria, we knew he was unhappy but Carlo and myself weren't either. We know that if we want to win something we have to improve are game. There isn't a substitute for Pirlo at Milan. Redondo was the obvious one, he was better than Andrea in short passing but less so with long balls. It's something we have to adjust.'
I'm getting a little angry when I read something like that : "no substitute for Pirlo". Rui Costa did a great job last summer when Pirlo was on the Olympics. Why couldn't Rui replace Pirlo last match instead of Ambrosini ?
