Carlos Bacca backwards step is baffling

Published 1 Comments

I can't be the only one who's bemused by Carlos Bacca's decision to join an AC Milan side that won't be playing European football next season. 

It's a very odd move for a player who has won the Europa League twice in the last two seasons with Sevailla - thus qualifying them for Champions League football in the coming campaign. 

It seemed Bacca would be on to bigger and better things with Manchester United and Roma - two sides who will be playing Champions League football next season - among those linked with the Colombian striker.

AC Milan are certainly a club in huge turmoil, finishing 10th in the season just finished and eighth the year before. They are showing no signs of a revival to the old Milan of the past who were heavyweights in continental competition - winning the European Cup seven times, which is only bettered by Real Madrid.

Milan will be delighted at Bacca's capture considering he has scored 49 goals in 106 Sevilla appearances, although the Colombian goalscorer won't have come cheap with the transfer fee reported to be €30 million.

"Milan are still able to charm players to join them and the purchase of Bacca is a good one," he told La Gazetta dello Sport. "But more players are needed."
