Following the signing of Robinho and Ibrahimovic, AC Milan has become the favorite to take the UEFA Champions League and Serie A titles, at least that’s what Milan defender Thiago Silva believes.
“The club had a fantastic transfer campaign. I won’t say that we will win the Champions League and Scudetto, but we will reach one of these objectives,” said Silva to Sportsmedia.it.
Last summer, Silva was rumored to be making a move to Real Madrid, but the Brazilian defender has since insisted that he is happy to remain in San Siro.
With a plethora of talent up front, Milan will certainly have the talent to win a major title, but critics have argued that Milan will have trouble working all of their big names into the lineup. Silva, however, disagrees with this notion.
“As a defender I would like to see Alexandre Pato, Ronaldinho, Robinho and Zlatan Ibrahimovic all play together. I am ready to fight too and chip in with some goals.”
Milan started their campaign for the Scudetto off on the right foot, as they easily defeated Leece 4-0 last week.
