Throwback Thursday; 05-05-19

Updated: Nov 16, 2019

On the way to Australia following our 13th Scudetto, Milan stopped by South Africa to meet a man that changed the world.

Two meetings were held, one in private and one in public, with the team talking at great lengths with Nelson Mandela, about his love for AC Milan, football and his fight in South Africa. The stop was made especially for Mandela, with the team greeting him not just as AC Milan but as representatives of Italy.

A friendly was organised against the team of Soweto, the Orlando Pirates, an area which was the epicentre of change in South Africa. We won 3-2 but it wasn’t about winning. It was about unity and fellowship, playing truly the worlds game.
