Times have changed in modern football and some of the biggest dynasties in the sport’s history have come to an end in the past few years, as new game styles and the generational transition for some of the most representative teams around the globe had made them fall away from the elite level they’re used to.
One of those iconic teams that has lost a lot of relevance in the past few seasons is the Italian side, AC Milan. The Rossoneri have failed to get a pass to the UEFA Champions League after being one of the most dominant teams across Europe.
However, these droughts won’t last long, as this is a kind of team that every single player dreams of playing for, so there’s just a matter of time before they get back on track and make fans forget about the dark times, just as it happened with Barcelona more than a decade ago before the Rijkaard era began.
So, let’s go ahead and take a look at the three main reasons why a great time like AC Milan will rise from the ashes sooner than later.
The team was recently sold to a huge Chinese investors group for around 628 million and the new ownership is more than willing to spend big bucks in order to return the tea to it’s former glory, unlike the last years of the Berlusconi era when the team’s struggles made their management hesitate to make a significative investment in big names.
If somebody knows how to make a profit, it’s the Chinese, and their new owners are going to make the most of their investment while exploring the market with one of the most popular teams all around the globe.
AC Milan’s History
As we mentioned before, more than half players in the world are more than willing to wear the black and red striped shirt, as most of them grew up watching Gullit, Maldini and more recently Gattuso, Cafu and Shevchenko, who won every single title. And the players can only dream of the stature those legends got during their heydey.
This team’s going to make a big move in the market any time soon and there are going to be more than a dozen of suitors eager to live up to the task of taking AC Milan back to their accustomed winning way.
Serie A’s resurge
The Italian championship has taken a big step backwards in the past 5 years or so, and team ownerships are being really concerned about this matter, as their teams are getting thrashed in european competitions even if they thrive in their domestic tournament.
The resurge of Napoli, Roma and Fiorentina will make the Italian league way more competitive and inevitably their teams will have to upgrade their level in order to compete and try to dethrone Juventus once and for all.
Last but not least, this new generation of young players like Donnarumma, Pasalic, Locatelli and Bertolacci will definitely make an impact for the Rossoneri team, and you can rest assured that this slump will be over really sooner than expected.
