Pablo Armero thinks Milan need to press Napoli in order to win and is happy with finally playing.

Milan have an injury crisis in defense and that led Filippo Inzaghi to using Armero from the first minute, and the Colombian played two full games against Udinese (2-0 win) and Genoa (1-0 loss).

“As with regards to the Genoa match, we knew it was a big chance to make progress in the league table, and we did everything possible to do well. We lost the match but we must keep trying, we know we’re a strong side that can do better,” he told the Milan Channel.

“The last 2 matches? I thank the coaching staff and my team-mates for their faith in me. For a player this is very important. I hope I can continue like this, I’ve come here to help out on the pitch and when the coach needs me I am ready to do this.

“My experience at Napoli? I started well there, the fans and my team-mates showed me a lot of warmth at my arrival. We know Sunday’s match won’t be easy but this week we have to work hard to arrive at 100% for this match. Their attack is excellent, they’re fast and we will have to stay focused for the entire match and avoid setbacks. If we work well we can thwart their attack.

“We have to be dangerous when we’re in attack; this way we can win the match. All of Napoli’s players are strong technically. They have Duván Zapata, Gonzalo Higuain and Jose Callejon and we have to press them to stop them playing their game. In this way we can win.”

Err… Armero is horrible. Tactically unsound. Better than Constant.

Wish we had kept Antonini.


I hope Inzaghi realizes that he now, with the injury of DeJong, return of Montolivo and the poor performances from Muntari and Essien have a great opportunity to field a very mobile and fluid midfield that can be the creative engine behind our attacking players. —Montolivo—–Bonnaventura—-VanGinkel— These three players are very secure with the ball. Bonnaventura contributes with a directness that every other Milan midfielder desires. He tracks back, can pick a player with a pass and can run at defenses as well. His versatility is possibly his greatest asset, but as a central midfielder, he can run with the… Read more »
