    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…)

    Report: Torres not in the thoughts of Schalke’s Di Matteo

    Fernando Torres warming up (@acmilan.com)

    FERNANDO TORRES has been linked with Schalke but Gianluca Di Marzio has claimed there is nothing real, at least now.

    Torres has scored just one goal since making the switch from Chelsea in the summer but his overall performances have been okay and at least he didn’t switch shirts with an opponent on half-time and annoyed his coach, as opposed to the now-Liverpool man that he replaced.

    The German ‘Bild’ reported earlier this week that Schalke coach Roberto Di Matteo would like to add Torres, with whom he won the Champions League, to his ranks but as far as the respected Italian transfer market expert Gianluca Di Marzio is concerned, “there don’t appear to be the conditions for a deal.” Di Marzio writes on his site that Torres is not in the thoughts of coach former Chelsea [manager] and the Spanish isn’t considering a move either.

    Abate: “I want to end my career at Milan, Inzaghi a perfectionist”

    Ignazio Abate celebrating against Hellas (@acmilan.com)

    IGNAZIO ABATE has commented about his expiring contract, the change Inzaghi has brought into the training center and the club and claimed he follows the example of Gattuso.

    Abate has been one of the most pleasant surprises in Serie A as he’s one of the best performers at Milan this term with 5 assists and good defensive work. Inzaghi believes in the player and Ignazio has started all games so far.

    The contract of Abate is set to expire in June and his representative Mino Raiola has suggested that Milan haven’t yet made an offer to renew it but talks have started and Abate is interested in keep wearing the red and black colours.

    The change of coach has been good for me and for the group, the atmosphere is different. But I don’t get excited now just like I was depressed before,” Abate said in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport. (continue reading…)

    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…)
