AC Milan new head coach Leonardo warned this Tuesday that his team will not have a good season relying solely on young players. He believes that Milan is still in need of reinforcements.

This in response to comments made by Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi that it is imperative for Leonardo to utilize players less than 23 years of age.

If there is one thing the pre-season games made evident is that Milan is still in need of reinforcements; they have not been able to replace Kaka and are now in danger of losing Andrea Pirlo to Chelsea.

The only effort made for reinforcements, if you can call it that, was the low ball offer for Luis Fabiano, which was emphatically rejected by Sevilla.

Abate (22), and Antonini (26) provided a glimmer of hope putting in solid performances in the pre-season.

Milan’s over 30 list:

Kalac - 36
Abbiati - 32
Dida – 35
Kaladze – 31
Gattuso – 31
Inzaghi – 35
Seedorf – 33
Nesta – 33
Zambrotta – 32
Jankulovski – 32
Favalli – 37
Pirlo – 30
Ambrosini – 32
Oddo - 33
