AC Milan Legend Mauro Tassotti picks his ideal AC Milan XI
Milan legend Mauro Tassotti spent the most part of his career playing at the San Siro stadium. Ever since leaving Lazio in 1980, Tassotti played for Milan until his retirement in 1997.
The 57-year-old sat down in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport and picked up his ideal Milan XI filled with legends, most of whom he has played with.
Tassotti currently works as assistant manager of the Ukrainian national team which is headed by former Milan striker Andriy Shevchenko.
The Milan XI that Tassotti chose had Franco Baresi, Alessandro Nesta and Maldini in defence while the midfield was dominated by Andrea Pirlo,
Frank Rijkaard, Ruud Gullit.
Tassotti also joked that the only reason he put himself in the team was because he picked the team.
