AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani admits he has regrets about missing out on Manchester City's Carlos Tevez.
Tevez came close to joining Milan during the January transfer window, but the deal fell through after the Serie A side failed to agree a fee with City for the Argentina international.
The striker has since returned to the fold at the Etihad Stadium and made his comeback in Wednesday's win over Chelsea, six months after his last appearance following his infamous bust-up with Roberto Mancini.
Galliani watched Tevez in action against the Blues and concedes he rues failing to bring the player to the San Siro, admitting he was "in love" with the South American.
"I was in love with Tevez and yesterday I saw him returning to the field with Manchester City and I loved it so much," he said.
"When he entered the game changed.
"He drives me crazy, but some trains have to be taken in the exact moment which they pass, while fate decided otherwise.
"However we are delighted with what Maxi Lopez is doing with our shirt."
