Cristian Brocchi says he was surprised by his AC Milan job opportunity but wants to earn his stay.

AC Milan is the pinnacle of football teams. Hailed as the best Italian team along with Juventus, AC Milan is also considered one of the best in world football. Being appointed as the manager for the main team was sure to be a pleasure hard to comprehend.

Cristian Brocchi, who was the coach for the Youth team was promoted to the senior team after the former coach Siniša Mihajlovi? was sacked from his position.

"I didn't expect it," he told Mediaset television. "They told me they wanted to talk to me, but I wasn't sure what it was about -- they could have wanted to talk to me about the youth team."

When he received news about his promotion he could hardly believe it. Still, he tends to fulfill his role with utmost pleasure and devotion.

"I can't think of the future as any form of pressure. I've been given an opportunity to coach a top club like Milan and it's the best thing that could have happened to me. I'm doing the best I can and I will do this right up to the last day, whether that is May 21 or who knows when.”, he further added.

Currently at the fifth position of the league table, AC Milan still has five games to play. They still have a chance to move to the fourth if everything goes well. Club President Silvio Berlusconi asked him to take over the first-team until the end of this season to ensure their entry to Champions league next season. His last date as a manager is the date of Coppa Italia Final but we are pretty sure that he will be able to prove his worth.

We believe you could take Milan to new heights. Himself being a defensive midfielder he has great knowledge of Italian clubs who specializes with similar techniques.
