THROWBACK THURSDAY - Il ragazzo d'oro

Updated: Jun 16, 2019


Our best playmaker? Signing for us in 1960, Gianni Rivera is regarded as one of the greatest footballers of all time. Effortlessly creative and efficient, his leadership brought our first purple patch with 3 Scudetto, 4 Copa Italias, 2 European Cups and 2 UEFA Cup Winners Cups. He was our first of many Ballon d’Or winners in 1969 and retired in 1979 to a life in politics.


In our lifetime will we see another Gianni Rivera at Milan?
