how come Gullit is not one of milans legends?
is he not as popular as van Basten and Rijkaard?

He went into management.

:lol:
the site's curators' choice would deserve indeed a fan inquiry :D

Seriously...
as far as popularity, I'd even say that in the beginnning he was way more popular.
Gullit was more... flamboyant, over the top, outward, both in figure, attitude and style

But of The Dutch Trio, he was the only one to go on playing in antoher italian team (Sampdoria) after qutting Milan. And as such, he didn't refrain to make public his criticism against the club he had been for so many years a hero, even an icon for...

You could say that with Gullit, Milan fans had some extraordinary sex, but then it was all over, while the love we feel for Marco in the deep of our red-black heart will last forever

I think that list is not comprehensive anyway.
Maybe players who also had fortunes with other teams were left out, like Altafini (Juve) and Liedholm (Roma).
And what about legendary goalies like Cudicini (senior) and Albertosi?

True, for a few years Milan hung on Weah's alone.
And he was beloved too, but he left in strife with the manager, and I was left with the feeling that he had something more to show that he never managed to get out...
