In order to be the best you have to beat the best. Yesterday it was 30 years ago that we beat Diego Maradona’s Napoli with 3-2, which was a huge step towards the first title we won with AC Milan in 1988.

But seriously, Gullit is right that to be the best, you have to beat the best. And as fantastic as some of the wins have been this season, Milan need to start beating Juventus and Napoli if they are to challenge for a Scudetto anytime soon.
