In december I know he had a unsuccessful trial with Manchester City and after that Torino signed him.I guess he has his old mentor Zaceroni to thank for that one.He isnt playing regularly now.You know he had a huge potential shame he threw it all away....

what about Rivaldo,where's he at now??? Turkey? or back to Brazil.

back in 1999,when he took the golden ball,joining Milan-those were the good times.Only then at some point he started to break down.So from what i remember-his last days layed a bitter taste.

Rivaldo plays for Olympiakos. I saw him rarely only when Olympiakos plays in CL.
Yes, his career only went backwards since he joined Milan. Just pitty cause he was great at Barca those days.

We didn't need him here, same for Ronaldinho. Imagine Ronaldinho having the same future if he would come to Milan

Riva was one of the best players in those days....the main problem had been-and also is today ANCELLOTTI!!!he's 70's football couldn't fir Rivaldo in our squad...justi imagine what would have some wuality coach as foe example Hiddink done with those players...Rivaldo...Seedorf...Rui Costa...Inzaghi....Sheva... and we almost lost our CL even if had been absolutely the best squad in the UNIVERSE!!!i love riva and i still watch him today...he's unbelievable...pure talent and magic...for me...he's way better than
Ronaldinho....(of course not now i'm talking about Barca Rivaldo)...And don't forget that Riva every important played on the highest level....

True as it is proven that Rivaldo was not even near his best in Milan, I sometimes feel that Sheva's recovery somehow hampered his playing time. At the start of 02-03 season, he was perfect as Inzaghi's partner. Supported by Rui Costa, Milan was actually playing a christmas tree formation since Rivaldo tend to dropped to the midfield (4 creative attacking players in one team, no team ever played like that). And it worked so very well for us, I remember how we trashed Torino 6-0 and Atalanta 4-1 and lead the table comfortably and dominating the CL.

And you might remember that after Sheva recovered and played regularly, Milan lost for the first time vs Chievo and we stopped playing majestically (winning games by single goal margin). So there was an adjustment period for both Milan and especially Rivaldo. It might be either side of the coin since Sheva proved to be very decisive in winning the CL but I just can't help thinking about the effect to Rivaldo. I mean, he was lifting the WC in June 02 and 11 months later he couldn't even get a playing time in CL Final.

But look at the bright side, Rivaldo's inconsistencies forced Milan management to bring Kaka to the first team (original plan was to loan him to some club to get more playing time and get accustomed to Serie A) and he was one of the main factor (aside from Sheva) in winning 03/04 scudetto.

Good points gaizka22, but we'll never know if it was due to poor form or some Sheva-effect that costed Rivaldo his place among our first XI.

I'd also like to add that those days when the midfield was packed with creative players were the best days in this millenium, I remember many were comparing that Milan to the 'Il Grande Milan' from the 90's.

I adore Rijkaards guts while at charge at Nou Camp, he really has balls. Not many would've fielded 5 creative midfielders in the same line-up; Xavi-Deco-Iniesta-Messi-Ronaldinho !

I don't know if I'd agree with that. I don't think we need Ronaldinho or should we even try and get him (although it would be REALLY interesting to have him) but I doubt his career would be hindered if he joined Milan. Yes the Italian league is different that what it used to be but I think it would even be a good thing for him because he would no longer have such a powerful attacking force such as Barcelona's to rely on.

I think he lost his starting place due to his poor form rather then Sheva's come back.The only game I saw Rivaldo star was the derby against Inter and after that he disappeared.
Pippo was banging in goals like crazy that season,Rui was having a great season and at the end Sheva caught his rytham.So Rivaldo found himself on the bench.Rui-Pippo-Sheva worked better then Rivaldo-Sheva-Pippo or Rui-Rivaldo-Pippo.We won the CL that season and Rivaldo didnt make any contribution at all so benching him was a right call if you ask me

I read in some Indonesian newspaper that Danielle Massaro has been appointed as one of the member for Milan Public Relations team. Anybody can confirmed this?

Massaro is such a loyal servant to Milan
