During playing days Barcelona legend Carles Puyol could have joined Milan and that he would have preferred to play with Paolo Maldini, he revealed.
In Barcelona, the 42-year-old spent his entire career and won 20 trophies, including six La Liga and three Champions League titles.
“I could have joined Milan,” he said during the Festival dello Sport organized by La Gazzetta dello Sport this past weekend.
“I would have liked to play with Paolo Maldini, he was my idol. I would have been happy to close my career in Italy,” he said.
“I had offers from English and Italian clubs, but when your club is also your home you don’t feel like wearing another shirt.”
Puyol is sure Milan will return to greatness.
