    Inzaghi: “Milan morale is still high, Empoli will be tricky”

    FILIPPO INZAGHI hasn’t decided on the starting XI for the match against Empoli and claims Milan need balance.

    Milan are currently in 4th place in Serie A after losing to Juventus at Stadio San Siro on Saturday evening but already tomorrow they have a shot to get redemption when they face 19th place Empoli at Stadio Carlo Castellani (kick off at 20:45).

    The Rossoneri were criticized for their performance against Juve with President Berlusconi saying “If I’ll visit Milanello more? Yes, but if they then don’t do what I told them to…”, but coach Inzaghi remains focused on Tuesday evening’s game. (continue reading…)

    Tassotti: “Juventus superior, there could be midfield changes”

    MAURO TASSOTTI believes Serie A champions Juventus are too good for Milan right now but the Rossoneri will keep following their path.

    Milan approached the game with Juventus yesterday with the idea of hitting them on the counter but the aggressiveness and quality of the Old Lady was too much for the Diavolo who didn’t manage to threaten Gianluigi Buffon more than a few times, while Carlos Tevez did succeed in beating the Milan keeper to give Juve the win.

    “We had a few difficulties at the start, and then we sorted it. The first-half was balanced but in the second-half we dropped too far back, weren’t able to use the counter-attack and we were too deep,” assistant coach Tassotti told the Milan Channel yesterday after the final whistle.

    Zapata: “I am disappointed, Milan played too deep”

    CRISTIAN ZAPATA feels that Milan focused too much on defending against Juve yesterday.

    It took Juventus 70 minutes yesterday to find the back of the Rossoneri net as a great Paul Pogba ball found Carlos Tevez who slotted it past Abbiati. But Juve could’ve scored a lot sooner as it fact they were in the driver seat for the majority of the match, pushing Milan back making them to spend most of the 90 minutes defending.

    “I am disappointed with the defeat and I thought we were too deep. Juve attacked for the whole game and we knew they could always find a way through,” Zapata, 27-year-old, told Sky Italia after the game. “I really want to do well this year. I like to play in a more advanced back line and take forwards on one-on-one, as I am a fast player.”

    Rami: “Milan didn’t play well, we mustn’t throw everything away”

    ADIL RAMI believes Milan need to get back to work and then they’ll be on the right track.

    Milan lost their first game in the new season yesterday, conceding once against Juventus in a match that was mainly played in the half of the Rossoneri, who spent most of the time defending. Carlos Tevez broke the deadlock in the 70′ minute in front of 78k people at Stadio San Siro and Milan were left with no points.

    “We showed desire not to concede a goal. We lost but we must not forget the good work we’ve done so far,” Rami told Premium Calcio. “We played too deep and Juventus deserved the three points, we have to work harder. We are at the beginning of the season and we have time to come back up. We lack a little confidence but we come off a difficult season and we need time.” (continue reading…)

    Inzaghi: “Milan must move forward and improve, credit to Juve”

    FILIPPO INZAGHI is not too down despite having suffered his debut defeat as the coach of Milan, against Juventus.

    Milan lost to Juventus yesterday and it’s clear that there is a gap in quality between the two sides. Coach Filippo Inzaghi took a defensive approach and wanted his boys to hit the side of Massimiliano Allegri on the counter, but it rarely worked.

    Carlos Tevez scored in the 70′ minute to give Juve the 1-0 win and hand Milan their first official defeat in the Inzaghi era. However, the former striker, who didn’t get carried away after the 2 wins against Lazio & Parma, isn’t too worked up over it. (continue reading…)

    Berlusconi: “Tomorrow’s match is fundamental, in 2-3 years…”

    SILVIO BERLUSCONI believes that the fans will completely return if the Rossoneri beat the Bianconeri at San Siro.

    Milan face Juventus tomorrow as part of Serie A’s Matchday 3 and it is the first big match of the season. Stadio San Siro is going to be fully packed (it is sold out with a Serie A record) and the fans seem to have returned to believing in Milan.

    In addition to the fans who are closer than they were last season, President Silvio Berlusconi is back ‘taking care of’ Milan and today he was again at Milanello to visit the squad (the first team and the Primavera and Berretti sides), for the 5th week. (continue reading…)

    Stadio San Siro (@acmilan)

    SAN SIRO is sold out for tomorrow for Milan against Juventus and the ticket income is expected to be the highest in Serie A’s history.

    ‘If the match against Parma goes well, then we could see 80.000 spectators for the Juventus match – a magnificent spectacle,’ said Adriano Galliani 9 days ago and indeed the Parma game went well as the Rossoneri won 5-4 in one of the craziest, most exciting games in recent memory.

    And just like Uncle Fester predicted, nearly 80k people will be at the San Siro on Saturday night to watch the Diavolo against the Old Lady. Milan confirmed this evening that the stadium is completely sold out for the match and there will be an attendance of 78,681 in the stadium.

    As reported on the red and black website, the ticket income for tomorrow is €3.2 million (3.233.620 to be exact), which is a Serie A record.

    President Silvio Berlusconi, along with many other Milan and Juventus supporters, will be at Stadio San Siro tomorrow to cheer. A wonderful atmosphere awaits, just 24 hours from now. (continue reading…)

    Deschamps: “Menez can make the difference in every game”

    Jeremy Menez in action against Juventus at the Trofeo TIM (@acmilan.com)

    DIDIER DESCHAMPS believes that Menez only needs trust and then if he wants to – Jeremy can make the difference every time he plays.

    Menez has said that his personal objectives for the season are scoring over 10 goals and returning to the France squad ahead of the 2016 Euro’s and the 27-year-old is on a mission to impress Les Bleus boss Didier Deschamps.

    “If I saw the back-heel goal of Menez? I don’t need to look at certain things that I already know,” Deschamps, a former player of Juventus, told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “It doesn’t mean that I don’t follow him because I follow all the players that may be useful for the national team. But he has always had those skills and if he wants he can make a difference in any game. I am sure that a goal will make him feel better. (continue reading…)

    Inzaghi: “Milan need the perfect match, San Siro will help us”

    FILIPPO INZAGHI believes Milan have nothing to lose against Juventus tomorrow but insists they have to stay realistic.

    Milan are first in the Serie A table but it’s important to remember that only two games have been played. But regardless of the positions, tomorrow’s game is going to be a spectacle: nearly 80k people will be at San Siro to witness Milan-Juventus.

    Inzaghi has had success so far, winning 3-1 against Lazio on the opening matchday and then managed to defeat Parma 5-4 at the Tardini in one of the craziest matches in recent years. But his big test is tomorrow when Allegri’s Juve come visit. (continue reading…)

    Allegri: “Game like no other, Juventus have repsect for Milan”

    Massimiliano Allegri during a match in charge of Milan (@acmilan.com)

    MASSIMILIANO ALLEGRI is getting ready for his San Siro return when his Juventus face Milan.

    Allegri coached Milan for 3.5 years, winning the Scudetto on his debut year. He was fired back in January and was replaced by Clarence Seedorf. Since then Seedorf has already been sacked and replaced by Filippo Inzaghi, who has had a positive start to his coaching career with two wins. Tomorrow ‘veteran’ Allegri, now at Juve, faces the young Pippo for a San Siro clash.

    “For me it won’t be a match like the others. I’m not a machine and if I said the opposite I wouldn’t be human. I spent three and a half splendid years at Milan, that by now are in my past, but it’s obvious that after a long time some relationships are still alive,” Allegri said in the presser today.
