Former AC Milan striker Mark Hateley says Liverpool striker Andy Carroll should make the move to Italy.
Milan chief Piersilvio Berlusconi admitted his interest in Carroll this week.
“It would be breath of fresh air for Andy Carroll,” Hateley told talkSPORT. “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.”
