    Menez: “I feel the responsibility, Milan point to the CL”

    Jeremy Menez at the 2015 Expo Gate on Friday (@acmilan.com)

    JEREMY MENEZ has admitted he’s not 100% in terms of his physical condition and wants to get back to winning and scoring.

    Menez is expected to return to the starting XI this Sunday when Milan host Palermo after starting from the bench against Cagliari and the Frenchman, who’s suffered from a few minor injuries this season, is targeting to bring the Diavolo back to the Champions League.

    “Physically, I’ve lost a bit of shape, but I am working hard, trying to recover as fast as I can in order to help my coach and my team,” Menez said at the 2015 Expo Gate today. It’s not a psychological matter but only a physical one because when you don’t really play for 15 days, as it has happened to me during the international break, it’s a lot of time.

    Galliani: “Serie A balanced, I like Torres, Berlusconi is positive”

    Adriano Galliani, Silvio Berlusconi and Filippo Inzaghi at Milanello today

    ADRIANO GALLIANI has spoken about Silvio Berlusconi, Pazzini, Torres, De Sciglio and others on Friday after his visit at Milanello.

    Despite the last two games without a victory, Milan are tied for third place with 16 points after 9 Serie A matches. Two days before Milan play the 10 round, Silvio Berlusconi paid his 10th consecutive visit to Milanello today and he was accompanied by Vice President Galliani.

    “If Berlusconi will be present for Milan-Palermo? I don’t know. But he will certainly be there for the Trofeo Berlusconi,” Galliani said to the press. The President is always positive, he spoke to the team and awarded the players a 7 and the coach an 8. His advice is to score goals. (continue reading…)

    Montolivo’s fractured tibia has healed, set for athletic work

    Riccardo Montolivo is almost ready to return (@acmilan)

    Riccardo Montolivo is almost ready to return (@acmilan)

    THE RETURN of Riccardo Montolivo is close and soon he will return to training with the group.

    Montolivo has been out of action for months since picking up an injury while on international duty for the Azzurri but the rehabilitation phase appears to be nearly behind him and he’s widely expected to be back in the squad for the Derby della Madonnina vs. Inter on November 23rd.

    “AC Milan would like to communicate that Riccardo Montolivo underwent a visit today from professors Herbert Schoenhuber and Riccardo Accetta, the two surgeons that operated on him on the 2nd of June earlier this year,” a statement on Milan’s website reads today (Thursday).

    “The outcome of the medical visit was positive and revealed that the fractured left tibia has healed. Montolivo will now begin the athletic preparation before resuming training again gradually with the side.” Inzaghi’s midfield is crying for more quality in midfield and the return of the captain can definitely help them.

    Meanwhile, Bonaventura, who scored in the 1-1 draw with Cagliari yesterday but also received a blow to his head, was tested in hospital in Sardinia and the tests showed no damage. However, he will be tested again tomorrow and it’s reported that Inzaghi could decide to leave him out of the squad for the Palermo match as a precaution. (continue reading…)

    Inzaghi: “Fiorentina decisive, Milan can’t take steps backwards”

    Filippo Inzaghi and Keisuke Honda celebrating against Hellas (@acmilan.com)

    FILIPPO INZAGHI has again declared that it’s difficult choosing the starting XI as he needs to keep every player in the squad happy.

    Milan come off two good wins against Chievo and Hellas Verona but tomorrow they take on a stronger opponent in Fiorentina and Inzaghi, who is happy to be +5 from the Viola, knows that the game against the boys of Vincenzo Montella will be important in the fight for a place in Europe.

    “It will be a tricky match tomorrow and we will have to do well as it’s a decisive moment in the championship,” Inzaghi told the Milan Channel today. “Fiorentina’s Europa League match on Thursday against PAOK? They played a good match and played good football on Thursday.

    “They rested a lot of first team players. They’re a good side, with an excellent coach and play nice football. It’s a tough match and I hope the San Siro will give us a big hand. They were great at Verona and I hope that tomorrow it will be lively as the team needs the fans. (continue reading…)

    Mastour included in the Primavera’s squad to face Verona

    Hachim Mastour on the Milan bench (@acmilan.com)

    HACHIM MASTOUR will be with Cristian Brocchi and the Primavera tomorrow afternoon.

    Mastour was promoted to the first team this year but between injuries and technical choices, he has yet to feature for the side of Filippo Inzaghi and hasn’t played a single minute in 2014/2015.

    Tomorrow he will finally be able to show his skills and get some match fitness as Primavera coach Cristian Brocchi has called him up for the game against Hellas Verona on Saturday afternoon (tomorrow, kickoff time is 15:00 CET).

    The offensive department of Milan is so stacked this season that even the likes of Giampaolo Pazzini and M’Baye Niang are struggling for space so it’ll be very difficult for Mastour to get the Serie A appearances he’d have liked. (continue reading…)

    Berlusconi: “Roma, Juventus defeats depreciate Calcio values”

    Silvio Berlusconi in Milanello (@acmilan.com)

    SILVIO BERLUSCONI certainly did not enjoy the defeats of Juventus and Roma in the Champions League earlier this week.

    Berlusconi said that he roots for Italian teams in the European competitions when Milan are not there and this week wasn’t a successful one for Serie A sides as between Roma, Juventus (CL), Fiorentina, Torino, Napoli and Inter (EL), only 2 sides managed to win. Moreover, the Giallorossi were humiliated by Bayern Munich at the Olimpico, losing 7-1, while the Old Lady suffered a 1-0 defeat to Olympiakos the following day.

    “The defeats of Roma and Juventus, in particular that of Roma, depreciate the values of Italian football,” President Berlusconi is quoted as saying on il Corriere della Sera on Friday. “The parameters for clubs are lowered. Not only that, you also lose positions in the European ranking. A defeat like that of Roma, devalues a player that plays in our league. After a defeat such as the 7-1, one of the players in our league can get a value that’s 1/14 of a player that plays in the German league.” (continue reading…)

    Weah on Inzaghi, Milan, the fight against Ebola and more…

    George Weah in action for Milan (@acmilan.com)

    GEORGE WEAH has revealed that Barbara has promised him that the Milan Glorie will play a match to support the fight against Ebola.

    After retiring from football in 2003, the 1995 Ballon d’Or winner decided to dedicate his life to politics and humanitarian work and now, with Ebola spreading and threatening many lives in Africa and even overseas, Weah has a lot on his plate. George, 48-year-old, is not one who’s afraid of challenges and he’s ready to tackle the disease, but calls for help from other nations but also from the world of European football.

    “My name is George Weah and I always opened so many doors. Even now I’m a lucky man because when people recognize me they smile at me but now their embarrassment is known and I understand now that they avoid touching me because they are afraid of contagion, they fear of Ebola. It’s not good, also because the prevention systems are there and they are effective,” Weah told La GdS. (continue reading…)

    Poli: “There’s desire for revenge, Gattuso comparison flattering”

    Andrea Poli (@acmilan.com)

    ANDREA POLI believes Milan need to take it one game at a time and stated: “When I hear the word Milan, for me it means victory.”

    Poli was bought out from Sampdoria (he was co-owned) this summer and has been used a lot by coach Filippo Inzaghi, usually on the right side of a three-man midfield, playing in nearly every match in pre-season and the Italian Serie A.

    “The fans? The compliments are pleasing. We always try to give our all, from now until the end of the season,” Poli told the Milan Channel in an interview today. “Let’s hope we can achieve a lot and reach our pre-set goal at the start of the year. All this passes through work. With commitment, work and desire we can do everything. (continue reading…)

    Gilardino: “Three exceptional years at Milan, Torres has quality”

    Stadio San Siro (@acmilan.com)

    ALBERTO GILARDINO believes Milan-Fiorentina will be a good match and claims that current coach Inzaghi was always very charged up.

    The Rossoneri face the Viola at Stadio San Siro on Sunday evening and Guangzhou Evergrande striker Alberto Gilardino, who played for both sides, shared his views on several topics in an interview with the Milan Channel today.

    “The 3 years at Milan were exceptional and they will always be a part of me. I’m happy with how Milan are doing, with how coach Inzaghi is working and all the players,” Gila said on Thursday. “I remember my experiences with Milan and Fiorentina with pride and happiness.

    “At Milan I played with some exceptional champions, won lots and scored lots. I lived very well in Florence and who knows whether I’ll move there when I finish playing. Inzaghi? I can say that Inzaghi as a player was always very charged up. He passes on his tension and his anger to the players, just like he used to do as a player. They are things that you have naturally inside and transmit to the team. (continue reading…)

    De Sciglio: “It’d be an honour to be the captain of Milan one day”

    Mattia De Sciglio (@acmilan.com)

    MATTIA DE SCIGLIO has claimed that he feels well on the left hand side of the defense & said that he’d like to be one of the Milan leaders.

    It took him a few games but De Sciglio seems to have settled in the position of the left back and has been a regular for Filippo Inzaghi this season, keeping Pablo Armero on the bench (there are also reports that Inzaghi hasn’t been confirmed by Armero in training) and has also featured in Antonio Conte’s Italy squad lists.

    Mattia is considered one of the most promising talents in Italy and at the rather still-young age of 22, he’s already racked up 64 appearances between the Serie A, Coppa Italia and the UCL.

    “If I feel predestined? Let’s say that compared to the other players I played with in the youth system, I was lucky enough to make the leap straight from the Primavera team to the first team without going out on loan,” De Sciglio said in an interview to the Italian daily newspaper il Corriere della Sera. “I think of Simone Verdi who’s now at Empoli, Simone Andrea Ganz who’s at Como or Gianmario Comi who’s at Avellino. I have to thank Massimiliano Allegri, who helped me to grow & gave me an opportunity to show what I can do. In other situations it wouldn’t have been possible. (continue reading…)
