MILAN – It’s with great joy that all Milan fans wish happy birthday to Gianni Rivera, forever a legend with the rossoneri jersey! The former Milan number 10 turns 71 years of age today. 
Gianni was born on the 18th of August 1943 on the same day, month and year as Roberto Rosato. A special thought also goes to Roberto who is no longer with us but will be forever remembered by Milan fans as a key member of the rossoneri defence during the national and international triumphs of the 1960s. 
Best wishes Gianni! Thinking of you Roberto!
