First Team


Giampaolo Pazzini is now officially a Milan player. This morning he joined the rest of his team mates at Milanello for his first training session.

MILAN - He turned 28 just a few weeks ago and now he is embarking on a new adventure in his career. Pazzo will now be scoring goals for Milan! He scored 15 for Atalanta, 33 for Fiorentina, 48 for Sampdoria and 19 for Inter.

At Milanello he will meet up with his old friend Montolivo and rediscover the enthusiasm of old when the two were discovered by the talent scout Mino Favini while at Atalanta. The two also played together at Fiorentina.

Now they are both at Milan and at Milanello for what promises to be bright future for both. Pazzini, who was in South Africa for the World Cup but now at the Euros this summer in Poland/Ukraine was part of an exchange with Antonio Cassano, another team mate of his at Sampdoria. Now his famous goal celebration (the v-shape with his fingers below the eyes) will become a symbol dedicated to the rossoneri fans.

Yesterday the striker signed his new contract, carried out his medical and performed other tests at Milanello and today he joined his team mates in training at the rossonero sports centre.
