NOTTINGHAM (ENGLAND) – Adrian Galliani, grandson of the most famous ex- Milan CEO Adriano Galliani, has just signed with Nottingham Forest, the English Championship club that also boasts two Champions League on its wall. Galliani arrives at Nottingham after playing in the Milan and Reading youth teams (also in England). For him, even a short experience in the United States (where he also practiced basketball and baseball).
Adrian Galliani: "In Nottingham I am only Adrian, in Italy they gave me the recommended".
After signing with the prestigious English club, Galliani told his first emotions to Marco Conterio for tuttomercatoweb.com: “I have been here since October but having already had a membership, I could not sign. They asked me to stay after an audition, now the adventure officially begins. It is a beautiful city, nice, young, university. My surname? In England they don't make me weigh it. Almost zero.
Here I am Adrian, more than Adrian Galliani. Mister and managers know who my grandfather is, but most of the teammates and opponents don't (laughs, editor's note). The situation is calm, they welcomed me well. I'm happy.
In Italy it was different. I have heard the word 'recommended' so much, but whoever wants to knock you down doesn't go anywhere. Sometimes it hit me but then I realized that people's malice must not hurt you. "
