On-loan Villarreal striker Carlos Bacca has launched a stinging criticism of his parent club AC Milan by saying that he played in the ‘worst Milan team in history’.
Milan finished 7th and 6th in Serie A in Bacca’s two seasons with the club and the former Sevilla striker opted for a return to Spain in the summer as Vincenzo Montella overhauled his squad.
“The years in Milan were satisfactory to me on a personal level, achieving the objectives that I had been set,” Bacca told W Radio Colombia. “It could have been better, of course, but it needed the help of the leaders.
“I played in the worst Milan team in history.”
‘We had different ideas with the coach and the new owners, but I left with my head held high because Milan are in Europe and I gave my contribution.
‘I’m pleased Milan returned to Europe. That was my goal when I left Sevilla.’
Since joining Villarreal on loan in the summer Bacca has found the net just twice in eight La Liga appearances.
Carlos Bacca enjoyed himself in front of goal in two years at AC Milan , scoring 34 times in 76 games
