Real Madrid 2, Milan 4: BLING.


Milan won their fourth consecutive Dubai Football Challenge, and more impressively they won vs. Real Madrid. You can dismiss it as a meaningless trophy, but our boys didn’t. They played with heart and grinta, and made the most of Real Madrid’s errors. And they won a CUP. The third trophy of the season. That’s right, people, BLING.

Trophy number three for Milan this year. 

With a goal by Menez, a brace by El Shaarawy, and a goal by Pazzini, Milan are going to need some more trophy polish when they return from Dubai. Pretty much everyone who was healthy got some time, and Agazzi even had some nice saves on Gareth Bale, so you know the stars were aligned. Now as long as El Shaarawy and Mexes don’t have injury concerns, this will have been a pretty perfect friendly. Especially with the cameo at the half from Djokovic, a fervent Milan supporter (maybe Galliani can sign him in the mercato?) Let’s hope our boys don’t get blinded by all of the bling and come ready to play Sassuolo with as much grit as they played with today.

Trophy number two, the Trofeo Berlusconi

First trophy of the season, the Trofeo TIM

BLING.
(even if they are all from friendlies)
