A Whole lot of Milan
2.3 || Seamus
02/27/2003. As of today Milan are the only Italian squad to qualify for the quarterfinals of Champions League.
Milan, the only Italian squad still fighting on the three fronts.
Milan, the only Italian squad that up until now can still keep pace with the other great qualifier of the next round of Champions: Manchester United, host of the final at Old Trafford.
They can be compared both on a technical basis (victories, made goals and goals against) and on an economic level. The Corriere della Sera put this morning the Rossoneri on the same level as the Red Devils: in regard to the number of participations in European tournaments, the bonuses for every round advancement and every victory, the sum that can be distributed among the remaining teams in regards to television rights, and the sale of daily and two-day tickets, Milan gained a sum of around 32-35 million Euros.
If the adventure should continue for Milan, the amount of money the club will earn will increase as well, it can be compared to when the fans have on the pitch Pippo and Sheva, Rui and Riva, and Nesta and Maldini.
