MILAN – The youth sector at Milan continues to provide positive results and this year has been no exception. 
The youth team coached by Filippo Inzaghi won the Viareggio Tournament and reached the play-offs at the end of the regular season. On the European front, the team also performed very well in the UEFA Youth League where they finished second in their group to Barcelona and along the way followed up back to back wins against Inter and Ajax.
The Allievi Nazionali under the guidance of Omar Danesi came close to winning their title only to lose out to Inter on penalties following a closely fought final. 
The Allievi di I/II Divisione with Cristian Brocchi in charge enjoyed success both at home and abroad. Domestically they ran away with their league, finishing 10 points ahead of Inter while they also won the Ferroli di San Bonifacio trophy where they defeated Real Madrid in the final. They also reached the semi-final of the Al Kass International Cup in January.
There has been excellent improvement with Roberto Bertuzzo’s Giovanissimi Nazionali. Finishing third in the league, the team reached the semi-final of the Final Eight where they lost by a single goal to Roma. The Giovanissimi 2000 under Riccardo Monguzzi also finished third in their league while coach De Vecchi’s Giovanissimi 2001 were runners-up in theirs when they overtook Atalanta on the final day of the season.
The Esordienti 2002 under coach Morin won six tournaments including the prestigious Z.Z.F in Holland while the Esordienti 2003 had nine wins to their name in the league to finish third and won seven of the eight tournaments they took part in: the best being the Liege 2014 in Belgium.
The youngest side, the Pulcini 2004 finished first in six tournaments, winning the Crema City Tournament and the Juventus Griffante Memorial tournament. On the international front they finished runners-up to Valencia in the Valladoid (Iscar Cup), defeating Barcelona and Atletico Madrid along the way. 
The Pulcini 2005 won all of their 16 matches in Italy while in the international tournaments they did not concede a goal as they beat teams of the caliber of Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Anderlecht, Herta Berlin, Dinamo Zagreb and Borussia M’gladbach.
