Braida served as the sports director and CEO of Milan from 1986 to 2013 and won many trophies with the San Siro team under the reign of former president Silvio Berlusconi.
In addition, the 77-year-old former player also held many roles in the leadership of Barcelona, Sampdoria or recently Cremonese but did not achieve as much success as when he was with Milan.
In a recent conversation with Radio Sportiva, Braida affirmed that Milan currently no longer has the appearance of a big team.
“There are many players in the current Milan squad who do not meet the standards to play for the team,” Braida said. “Milan is no longer a big team now, I confirm this, This is just a club with a pretty average level. The current team cannot even pass the Champions League group stage. I love Milan and want the team to return to its golden age in the past.”
Recently, although coach Stefano Pioli helped the Rossoneri win the Serie A championship in the 2021/22 season as well as reach the semi-finals of the 2022/23 Champions League, Milan did not show a convincing style of play.
This season, the home team at San Siro was eliminated from the Champions League after the group stage when they ranked only 3rd in Group F. In addition, Milan also had their ambitions in the Coppa Italia ended by Atalanta in the quarter-finals. Milan is currently ranked 3rd on the 2023/24 Serie A rankings with 8 points less than leading team Inter Milan.
