CHRISTIAN ABBIATI believes that Milan will win the Scudetto despite recent disappointments.
Milan goalkeeper Abbiati has had a fantastic season so far and he’s certainly one of the main reasons why the Rossoneri have the best defense in the league – conceded only 19 goals.
The gap between il Diavolo are second-placed Napoli is only three points, while it could be -2 from Inter if they win their remaining game. However, Abbiati believes Milan will stay top.
Here are parts from his interview with the Rome-based newspaper il Corriere dello Sport:
Abbiati, can we trust this Milan?
“Of course, we are first in the standings and we’re going to stay in this spot until the end of the season.”
Why are you so optimistic?
“We are happy. We are conscious of our strength and believe in the final result.”
Who is the most dangerous?
“Inter have certainly improved and are more competitive. Napoli and Roma are only a step behind. They are dangerous too.”
Milan in 2011 haven’t lost, but yet is considered in crisis.
“Do not worry… we’ve a great football … we do not waver.”
Yes, but in the last two games, there were two draws.
“Lazio has not made a single shot on goal at San Siro. Muslera was good to stop and we were very unlucky. Against Genoa it was all the more difficult but the equalizer came out of a rebound.”
Beat Parma and Tottenham, to be back on track?
Yes, the victories are always important. Especially in this decisive stage of the season. “
