For the Love of God, Galliani, MOVE ON ALREADYBy: Martha | November 2nd, 2007
Back in August, Milan’s Adriano Galliani impressed us all (No, really.) with his announcement that his team had come thisclose to signing Theirry Henry over the summer. If only Barcelona hadn’t come in with their massive wage offers, Titi would totally have been solving all of Milan’s goal scoring problems right now.
In case anyone missed it back then, Galliani is now banging on about Henry again, and this time he’s added Luca Toni to his list of almost-Rossoneri. For anyone who still cares, the Milan VP told Sky Italia yesterday that “there was a moment in which Toni was very close to Milan.” See? They were totally trying to buy players! Stop the hate, would you people? Of course, as we all know, Toni ended up at Bayern Munich rather than Milan and, as we speak, is busy blowing doors off the Bundesliga with his lanky skills. And, unlike Henry, he didn’t stiff Milan for financial reasons, he just went abroad because he liked Bayern better. Ouch.
I suppose all Galliani is trying to do with these periodic “revelations” is show Milan supporters that he was not, in fact, sitting on his hands all summer, imagining his strike force would be just fine. But, really, does that matter? The point is that, apart from Gila, no Rossoneri strikers have even scored in Serie A this season. How do you say “close only counts in horseshoes” in Italian?
