SULLEY MUNTARI hopes Milan can continue their winning streak and says calmness will be needed on Friday night.
Muntari returned from injury in the game against Livorno last Saturday and with Nigel De Jong suspended, the Ghana international will play from the start alongside Riccardo Montolivo on Friday night at Stadio Olimpico when Milan visit Roma.
“I’m feeling better and I hope to get back to 100% for the team,” Muntari told Milan Channel. “We’ve been playing well for six games now and we want to keep that going until the end. We have two tough games now and we’ll have to first think about Roma and then the derby. We’ll have to stay calm on Friday in Rome, follow the coach’s instructions and stay focused.
“Things are going well at the moment and the luck that was missing earlier in the season has come now. We have to keep on doing well and take things one game at a time. We all know El Shaarawy, he’s a great player and still young. It’s been a shame that he’s been out so long but that’s life and he’ll grow because of it. He’s working well, he gets here in the morning and he’s the last to leave in the evening. I’m not thinking about the World Cup in Brazil, we’re all focused on the league.”
Muntari and Monto are likely to play in midfield with Andrea Poli expected to start as the right attacking midfielder against Roma as Keisuke Honda may not be 100% fit to participate and Kaka and Adel Taarabt playing behind Mario Balotelli.
