Juve's Conte reaches a plea agreement in match-fixing scandal.
KAKÀ's REAL MADRID ADVENTURE
Robinho at Santos wasn't much of a success, but Seedorf must be something to turn some heads at Brazil aside from Neymar, Ganso and Lucas. But what does Seedorf transfer mean for Brazilian League outside the pitch?

If you aren't familiar with this site, he does exhaustive reviews of various clubs' finances, looking at the finer details of revenues and expenditures, and more often than not explaining how a particular team is spending themselves to death. I figured Milan was running huge deficits every year, but nothing on this sort of scale. "If we exclude tax movements and profit from player sales, then the adjusted loss for Milan over the last four years would add up to a colossal €386 million with three of those four years coming in over the €100 million mark." Of course the sale of Kaka offsets this substantially, but it underlines the fact that they're fielding a world-class squad (and payroll) without the revenues necessary to pay for it. Better hope the ownership maintains its ability to be obsessively generous in the upcoming years.

Filippo Inzaghi has to be one of the most underrated players ever in the history of football. He is Milan's top goal scorer in club history with 43 goals, he has the most hat-tricks in the Champions League and Serie A history!!
Marcello Lippi has defended Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri from criticism amidst rumours that he could be axed. Allegri’s long-term future has been brought into question following the club’s recent exit from the Coppa Italia and Champions League. "I don’t understand how in Italy one day you can be the best and the next you can be sacked," the 2006 World Cup winner wrote in his Gazzetta dello Sport column. "For a year and a half Allegri has gained great results and they have not been achieved by chance," the former Juventus tactician underlined. "Allegri has overseen this cycle as a true leader. "Milan didn’t pick him by luck, he’s part of a series of young winners – like Arrigo Sacchi, Fabio Capello, Carlo Ancelotti – who, with great motivation and tactical innovations, have constructed the recent history of this club. "If today Juventus are winning the plaudits, I don’t think that it is right that Max and his players deserve criticism. Especially the Coach." There were suggestions that club owner Silvio Berlusconi is pondering a change of tactician in the summer because he wants to see a different brand of football. Allegri, a former midfielder, joined the San Siro outfit in the summer of 2010 and immediately led the team to the Scudetto. Milan are just one point behind Serie A leaders Juventus with six games to go.
