Milan announced today that they were going to be fielding a women’s football team starting in the 2018-19 season. And rather than start the team from scratch, they bought out Brescia. Brescia finished the season level on points with Juventus, but fell in the play-off to Juve to finish league runner-up.

The owner of Brescia, Massimo Cellino, had previously gotten rid of the women’s team at Leeds United when he owned the English club, despite the success of the team. And so it appears that even though the Brescia women’s team is far more successful than the men’s team, he’s sold them to Milan.
What a guy.
