Milan CEO Adriano Galliani Slams Inter's 'Fake Treble' Win

Milan CEO Adriano Galliani is not impressed with Inter's treble win last year.
Italian powerhouse Inter enjoyed one of the most successful years in their history last term when they won the treble by lifting the Scudetto, Coppa Italia and Champions League.

Nevertheless, Milan CEO Adriano Galliani isn't too impressed with the performances of the Rossoneri's city rivals and voiced his opinion that the 'real treble' doesn't include the Coppa Italia and Serie A title.

"In my opinion, you have to win the Champions League, European Supercup and Club World Cup to call yourself the real treble winners. I mean, how important is the Coppa Italia really?" said Galliani to Corriere dello Sport.

Galliani also took the time to discuss his relationship with current Inter coach Leonardo, who left Milan at the end of the 2009-10 season.

"He's been with us for 13 years and we'll never forget him. We had a very special relationship with him. His career path led him to the club as a player and he also worked as sporting director and coach.

"The way Inter play now is very similar to the way Milan played when Leonardo was in charge here. I know his footballing philosophy very well and we often talked with each other until a few months ago."

Milan still lead Serie A by five points from the Nerazzurri with 10 games left to play.
