Saying Goodbye...

Before we get to far into the transfer season we have a job to do...

For every poor Brazilian signing: Emerson, Digao, Roque Junior and to some extent Ronald0, the Milan brass have uncovered some gems who fit seamlessly into the Milan family such as Kaka, Pato, Serginho, and Cafu. On Sunday two of those gents played their last game in the Rossoneri and though I may at times be extra hard on the Brazilians in the squad it is hard to not pay tribute to Cafu and Serginho.

Cafu, to many, is the Brazilian equivalent to Il Capitano and really was most at home playing on the opposite of the living legend. Had Cafu came on the squad earlier than 2003 it would have been hard to deny that Milan was the home of the world’s two best wingbacks. Not only did Cafu play excellent club football he excelled for the Selecao and trained a new generation of wingbacks as well. Best wishes to Cafu, enjoy…

What is there to say about Serginho? There has never been a player more versatile on the pitch for the Rossoneri, and there has never been a player who filled in more admirably for during Maldini’s injuries. I always missed Il Capitano but felt a certain comfort knowing Serginho was going to be lighting up the left flank and putting some of the best measured crosses I have ever seen into the danger zone. Injuries shortened his career, but it certainly didn’t hinder some of these great moments.
