AC Milan Sign Cristian Zaccardo
Djamel Mesbah sold to Parma, Strasser Rumors Mount
Milan add a defender with bags of experience, a World Cup winner, and Djamel Mesbah can land some more pt at Parma.
Zaccardo will strengthen Milan at center back. He is a solid squad player who can play on the right side of the back four as well. His experience will be invaluable in those Serie A matches in which Milan are expected to win. There is no transfer fee; Milan will add 50,000 to the wage bill, but this looks a great swap.
Mesbah is another story. The Algerian likes to feature on the left side of the field, but was neither a solid enough defender or creative enough attacker. His delivery is often left wanting, and he is not physically imposing. He has never spent more than 2 full seasons with a club. You like to see a footballer put in years for a shirt.
Let’s just hope Rodney Strasser doesn’t get lost in all this.
