Fabio Capello says it’s ‘difficult’ for him to choose between Milan and Roma, but he is happy that Milan are now run by ‘Milanisti’.

Capello has won the Scudetto with both sides, perhaps that explains his soft spot for both teams.

“These two teams remain in my heart and it’s difficult to cheer either one on in this situation,” Capello told Sky Sports Italia.[via Football Italia]

“I think Milan made some very good signings on the market, now Gattuso must be given time to give an identity to the side.

“I am very interested to see this Roma and how they’ll recover from the Atalanta game. It’s a young squad, many of the new arrivals will take time to understand Eusebio Di Francesco’s tactics.”

Capello spoke of the Milan hierarchy as Leonardo and Paolo Maldini replaced Marco Fassone and Massimiliano Mirabelli.

“It’s about time that these figures came back to Milan. I signed Leonardo from PSG and Paolo Maldini came up through the youth academy.

“Milan needs Milanisti and before the atmosphere had very little of the Rossoneri.”
