Empoli land U21 ace
[size=2]Monday, 27 January 2003[/size]

Empoli FC have signed striker Marco Borriello on loan until the end of the season from AC Milan.

Limited chances
The Italian Under 21 international has played only three matches this season and is having to compete with players like Filippo Inzaghi, Andriy Shevchenko, Rivaldo and Jon Dahl Tomasson for a place in the Rossoneri starting lineup.

Saudati replacement
Empoli were looking for a striker to replace injured Marco Saudati, who broke his leg*in November. The 21-year-old Borriello scored ten goals last season in Serie C1 with Treviso FC and has netted three times for Italy in their current UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying campaign. Newly-promoted Empoli are currently eleventh in Serie A with 22 points from*18 matches.

I certainly hope this was just a loan deal, and i am horrified that we sent him to a side that we will have to play again, albeit in the San Siro. But, I can see Borriello coming back to haunting us here when we encounter Empoli...lets hope he does not.

I dont see why we cant put a clause disallowing him to play againt Milan. Anyway this should be good for him provided he gets first team football.

Whos got the balls to challenge THIS team?

He's Milan asset. If he improves his ability and promises his skillful playing..when he returns to Milan, someday first team will belong to him.

i think it's great idea. he will get first team football because saudati and di natelia are injured. and he will improve a lot. and milan might on loan the kid for next season.

I heard him this evening on Milan Channel and I could feel he isn't happy at all.
It was obvious he wanted to stay here, but they sent him away....
I hope we won't regret this decision if we'll ever need him.....
I hope he'll come back next july!
I already miss him!


I am with you!!!!

Hope he will get enough first team football and gain experience in Empoli. Next season he will be a better player for Milan.

Yeah it's really sad that this has to happen...
I mean rivaldo should be used in midfield then thats an extra spot! But maybe he plays an attacking role since he hasnt really hit form and an out of form midfield is worse...
