    Abbiati: “I’ll never betray this shirt, Milan’s road is the right one”

    Christian Abbiati in action against Hellas (@acmilan.com)

    CHRISTIAN ABBIATI had a great performance against Hellas but would understand if he were to start from the bench against Fiorentina.

    Abbiati got a rating of 7/10 from La Gazzetta dello Sport for his performance against Verona at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi as a string of great saves allowed Milan to keep their lead over Hellas and eventually collect all three points.

    “It was important to win on a field in which we couldn’t get the three points for many years,” Abbiati told Rai. “This victory allows us to point to the higher side of the standings. If I put Inzaghi in difficulty? This is my sport and I’ve never seen a player who’s happy to stay on the bench.” (continue reading…)

    El Shaarawy: “I could’ve done better, I try to repay the faith”

    Stephan El Shaarawy in action against Hellas Verona (@acmilan.com)

    STEPHAN EL SHAARAWY has talked about his angry response to the substitution and said he’s happy with the win over Hellas Verona.

    El Shaarawy hasn’t scored a goal since February but yesterday he provided a fantastic assist to set up Keisuke Honda for his 5th Serie A goal (he later scored his 6th goal thanks to a beautiful Adil Rami pass). Stephan had a decent game (he got 7/10 from the newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport) but was substituted in the 77′ minute.

    The forward was replaced by Jack Bonaventura and reacted by cursing ‘vaffanculo’. El Shaarawy explained why he was angry at the moment of the sub and believes Milan can still improve a lot. (continue reading…)

    Alex: “We have to give our all in every match, I feel very good”

    Alex in action (@acmilan.com)

    ALEX IS happy with the win over Hellas and says Milan have to believe in themselves.

    The Brazilian has been rather impressive this year as after a shaky pre-season, he managed to convince Filippo Inzaghi and the fans and he’s now a guarantee at the back and one of the first names Pippo thinks of when he draws up the XI.

    “We did well, it was important to work altogether,” Alex told the Milan Channel at the end of the 3-1 win over Hellas Verona. “Abbiati had a brilliant match and played his part in the result. We have to give our all every match. I feel very good here at Milanello. I hope to score as soon as possible, maybe as soon as the next match. We have to believe in ourselves, because we’re working well. (continue reading…)

    Galliani: “El Shaarawy our jewel, Inzaghi doing well, January…”

    Adriano Galliani and Filippo Inzaghi (@acmilan.com)

    ADRIANO GALLIANI has spoken about Keisuke Honda, Stephan El Shaarawy, Filippo Inzaghi, Liverpool’s Suso & Madrid’s Khedira and more.

    After 7 matches, Milan have 14 points and are 4th in the standings. They are also the team with the best attack in the league with 16 goals scored. Galliani left Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi yesterday after Milan got an important victory over the historically difficult-to-beat Hellas Verona.

    “We are very pleased with the win yesterday. I spoke with Inzaghi again this morning,” Galliani said today. “We talked a few times, he’s fine. We are pleased with him too. But we have seen the change straight away, since the first match with Lazio there has been a different atmosphere and I think everyone has understood this, first and foremost the fans. There is a very good aura. (continue reading…)

    Tassotti: “Milan were up for it today, Abate-Honda did very well”

    Mauro Tassotti (@acmilan.com)

    MAURO TASSOTTI complimented the defender and the forward’s work on the right-hand side as Milan won again, this time against Hellas.

    Tassotti was part of the Grande Milan that suffered tough matches at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi against Hellas but today he sat next to head coach Filippo Inzaghi on the bench and watched the boys bring the 3 points home.

    “It was a tricky away tie, we were facing a good side at a difficult ground for us,” Tassotti told the Milan Channel. “We played a good match and we’re happy. There were good performances from those that hadn’t played in a while.

    “We realized straight away that the side were up for it today, they had a good warm-up and they were very focused. We prepared well for the match during the week. Honda and Abate did very well down the right flank, they’ve found a perfect understanding. Keisuke arrived initially without ever taking a break, he needed time to understand our game and we needed to understand him. (continue reading…)

    Inzaghi: “Hellas win our best game, Honda not a surprise”

    Filippo Inzaghi in the match day (@acmilan.com)

    FILIPPO INZAGHI is happy with what he saw against Hellas as he’s spoken about Michael Essien, Honda, El Shaarawy and others.

    Milan got a double win over the Verona teams as after beating Chievo 2-0 before the break at Stadio San Siro, they took on Hellas at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi on Sunday afternoon. The Diavolo beat Hellas 3-1 thanks to an own Rafael Marques goal and two great Honda goals.

    The Rossoneri collected three important points and are currently in 4th place in Serie A with 14 points after 7 matches. Coach Inzaghi is pleased with the result and with most of the performance.

    “I’m very happy because this week I insisted on the importance of a good start and in the first 20 minutes we pressed high up,” Pippo said in the press conference. I think it’s been our best match, it gives me lots of hope, this side is continuing to grow. (continue reading…)

    Inzaghi: “Milan are ready, Hellas stronger than last year”

    Filippo Inzaghi (@acmilan.com)

    FILIPPO INZAGHI has claimed he’s not yet decided on the starting XI but likes being ‘spoilt for choice’ heading to Sunday’s match.

    Milan left for the international break with a 2-0 win over Chievo and tomorrow they’re facing the other team in Verona – Hellas – for a difficult match at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi. Inzaghi, a former Hellas player in his own right, is getting ready for the encounter which kicks off at 15:00.

    “Verona have improved compared to last year. They’ve got Marquez and want to play a higher class of football. We have to be careful,” Inzaghi told the Milan Channel. “We’ve studied certain situations well, but we know it will take a top performance. Against Roma they came close to taking the lead. They will play an open match and they can put us in difficulty. We’re ready and we’ve prepared the match in the best way. (continue reading…)

    El Shaarawy: “I’m a bit angry, but Inzaghi knows my value”

    STEPHAN EL SHAARAWY has revealed he’s a bit disappointed to have spent the majority of the last games on the bench but knows he has the confidence of coach Filippo Inzaghi.

    Jeremy Menez trained with the squad yesterday and Filippo Inzaghi has 27 players at his disposal for Sunday’s match from which he’ll have to choose 11 starting players & everything points at El Shaarawy starting on the left flank with Torres and Honda joining him in attack.

    It would be El Shaarawy’s first start since the Juventus match and only third overall this season. Stephan was at the Mondadori Megastore on Friday evening and shared his feelings about the moment he is experiencing.

    “Sunday? I don’t know yet if I’ll play because the coach hasn’t decided on the starting line-up yet,” he said. “However, what I can say is that I’m, as I have been for the last three games. After the match with Juventus I had fully recovered and the exclusions in the following matches were only technical choices. The only thing I can say is that when I’m called upon I’ll give my all as always – I want to go out and prove who I am. (continue reading…)

    Galliani: “Fantastic cohesion, January? If anything, we’ll sell”

    Adriano Galliani and Filippo Inzaghi (@acmilan.com)

    ADRIANO GALLIANI has spoken ahead of the match with Hellas Verona and was almost surprised to see so many players fit and training in training center Milanello today.

    Milan used the international break well to rest up and recover the injured players and as of right now they only have one player on the injured list for the match against Hellas on Sunday (Nigel De Jong will miss it through suspension). Milan and Hellas have a long history and Rossoneri Vice President Galliani certainly remembers it.

    “The President (in his visit today) reminded us of the historic difficulty of this game,” Galliani said. “He recalled that Milan missed out on two League titles because of Verona. Anyone who is not young enough to recall 1973 surely remembers 1990. (continue reading…)

    Van Ginkel: “Milan were interested in me for a long time”

    Marco Van Ginkel in training yesterday (@acmilan.com)

    MARCO VAN GINKEL has said it’s nice to be in Milanello and revealed that he learns Italian.

    Van Ginkel joined Milan on a season-long loan with no buy-out option but hasn’t got a chance to show his worth yet as he picked up an injury 28 minutes into his debut but he could be in the squad for the game against Hellas Verona.

    “Fortunately I’m almost fit,” the 21-year-old told Omroep Gelderland. “Chelsea? I have not been put on the Champions League list, whilst there are also many foreigners in the squad and the bell was ringing because someone had to leave.

    Milan are a great club – last year they finished eighth, but they do not want to repeat that. This club has often won big trophies, at training there are always many fans asking for autographs, it is nice to be here. (continue reading…)
