San Marco criticises Milan's transfer policy

Table of Contents
AC Milan legend Marco van Basten admits he was surprised by his former employer's transfer campaign this summer.

Van Basten’s arrival along with fellow Dutchmen Ruud Gullit and Frank Rijkaard in the late 1980s sparked the birth of Il Grande Milan that conquered Italy, Europe and the world.

But Milan supremo Silvio Berlusconi has recently taken more care of the club’s finances and pulled the purse strings tight.

"How can you be competitive when the others reinforce and you don’t buy players?" van Basten told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Have you seen how many players Juventus and Inter Milan have brought in? They invested far more than Milan.

"You can’t win without investing, so if the players to reinforce the squad aren’t brought in, it’s tough to get back to the top level.

"The whole club should take itself back to the success of the past. The coach cannot be made responsible if there have been few investments.

"Leonardo does his job and it won’t be his fault if Milan do not win. He does what he can with the squad at his disposal."
