Mark Hateley believes Andy Carroll would become a better all-round striker if he moves to AC Milan.
The son of Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi, Pier Silvio - president of Mediaset, the holding company that owns the San Siro club - admitted earlier in the week that he’s desperate to land the Liverpool striker.
"As a future target I’d like Andy Carroll," he told The Sun. “I must admit that for his body build, and after seeing his header in the Euros, I would like to have Carroll at Milan."
“It would be breath of fresh air for Andy Carroll,” he told Hawksbee and Goldstein. “It would be great to go away and test himself in a new environment, a new culture and a different way of living.
“That was key for my development when I was so young. I played under a young Fabio Capello at Milan. They teach you the game inside and out, that’s what they do in these countries, especially Italy.
“Big strikers have always been a handful. It would be great for Andy and, when he’s taken all that on board, it’ll be great for England.
“At his age you’re still very young and very raw. You’re susceptible to taking on new projects and ideas.
“He’s got great strengths in his game already but he still has a lot of weaknesses. They [Milan] can deconstruct his game and build it back up again to the way a European centre-forward should be.”
