Patrick Cutrone feels Milan passed the Coppa Italia round of 16 deservedly and says the derby that awaits in the next round ‘needs no introduction’.
Milan defeated Hellas Verona 3-0 last night at Stadio San Siro thanks to a Suso cross, an Alessio Romagnoli tap-in and a super Patrick Cutrone header, and they will be facing Inter in the Coppa Italia quarter final at the end of the month, after the Nerazzurri beat Pordenone in pk’s.
“We started strong and got the goals early, so we pushed Verona back, especially in the second half and deserved to win,” Cutrone, who played as a left winger in Rino Gattuso’s 4-3-3 told RAI Italia after the final whistle. “The derby needs no introduction. We’ll be prepared and will try to get through to the next round.
“What has changed from Vincenzo Montella’s time? To be honest, I am nobody to say what has changed, but the coach does transmit a lot of grit and heart, but we need more than that, such as the style of football we played on Wednesday. I’m happy that we passed this round.”
Milan’s next Serie A match is against the very same Hellas Verona, but it will be away (Sunday, 12:30 CET). The Rossoneri will hope to repeat last night’s performance and record 3 wins in a row.
