Podcast: Out with the Old, In with the Youth


2013 has been a tough year to be a Milan fan, and the future of the first team is muddled with dysfunction from top to bottom, poor results and uncertain hope for the transfer window. But while we all bleed for the first team, there is tons of hope in our youth sector. So while we want to drink away the past year, today we toast to the future with part two of our “Youth Dreams” interview all about Milan’s Youth Sector.

Hope for the future

Once again I have a very special guest coming to us from Milano. He calls himself the “Rain Man” of the Youth Sector, otherwise known as Francesco Battaglia of Milan Next fame. This time, we talk about:

• News of the Week: Ciao Niang, Get better El Shaarawy, grudge match friendly, mercato madness

• Centro Sportiva Vismara: improvements

• Youth Teams:  updates on the Primavera, Allievi Nazionali, Allievi I/II, Giovanissimi Regionali, and Pulcini 2005

• The Milan Model: 4-3-3

• Loaning Young Players:  Bryan Cristante




Thanks once again to the prophetic and wise Francesco. Follow him on @MilanNext on Twitter, or like the Milan Next Facebook page. For the really good tweets, follow him @bennybatta on Twitter.





Happy New Year from Milan Obsession!
