Suso says ‘Carlos Bacca is very important for us’ and believes it’s early for Milan to target the Champions League.

Milan started the year with 1-0 win over Cagliari which arrived thanks to a very late goal from Carlos Bacca (88′) but since all their opponents also won on Matchday 19, the Rossoneri stay in fifth, but with an extra game in hand (vs. Bologna).

“We knew that all the other teams had won this weekend, so it was a very, very important result for us,” Suso told Sky Italia after the game. “It was difficult, as Cagliari fought hard and defended very well, but we managed to break them down in the end.

“Bacca’s goal [the Colombian scored for the first time since October]? He’s very important for us, he created space for the other players too and it’s easy to find him. If the Champions League is the objective? I think it’s early to say, we have to think game by game and we want to return there.

“My moment? I’m happy here, I wanted to play from the first day I arrived and I went to Genoa to show that I can play [for Milan]. I’m very happy, the fans are always with me.”

  1. awesome game was a bit worried that we were going to draw.

    Ive noticed 5 things so far:

    Paletta is a solid rock

    LAPADULA SHOULD PLAY MORE ALONGSIDE BACCA.

    lOCATELLI SHOULD REPLACE MONTOLIVO(NO DISRESPECT WHATSOEVER)

    THE NEW REBORN DE SCIGLIO IS AWESOME.

    TAKES 5 PLAYERS TO CATCH SUSO

     
    • Locatelli has a long way to go but he’s on the right path. There will be time when he’ll have poor form. That’s when you need player like montolivo. Locatelli got dominated in both juve game plus against Roma too. So montella needs to protect the player. As soon as he has 2 bad games people will try to replace him

      Example: niang, Bertolucci, desiglio, abate, bacca etc. all of them at some point in their Milan has been talked really negatively

       
  2. No disrespect we need a rock in our middlefied dat can change and challenge when d go gets tough thanks to lampa for d 3 points and d boy’s did a great job for pushing carligari hard good job montellahope we can do more cos other clubs has closed in on us.niang has not being productive he has to improve for bacca he can’t score when d ball is not coming .My fingers crossed forza milan

     
  3. He’s arguably been our best player this season in general but he mustn’t think he is the Messi of this team. I mean, there were some incidents in the game were he could have passed the ball to a player in a much better position but decided to go at it alone and against four or five players at a time. It was the first time I saw such a thing from him. Hopefully he trusts his teammates more in the future. Amazing player anyway.
