It is every football loving child’s dream to step onto the pitch with their favourite players, and Prime Minister Joseph Muscat’s twin daughters did exactly that yesterday.
Soleil and Etoile Muscat, 11, were all smiles as AC Milan’s players marched them out onto the San Siro pitch ahead of their Serie Match against Fiorentina. Their dad, an ardent AC Milan supporter, and his wife Michelle were in the stands as the home team crumbled to a 1-0 defeat.
“A painful but still beautiful day at AC Milan,” Joseph Muscat said in an Instagram post after the game.
In another social media post, Muscat appeared to remind people of the Italian club’s past glories, uploading a photo of the Ballon d’Or AC Milan legend Marco van Basten won back in 1992.
