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.”
