Philippe Mexes has said Silvio Berlusconi wanted a win against Inter after the Frenchman scored an amazing goal yesterday.

After losing to Lyon, Milan grabbed their first actual pre-season win, beating Inter 1-0 at the Longgang Stadium in China.

The victory arrived thanks to Mexes’ moment of brilliance in the 62′ minute and even coach Sinisa Mihajlovic who reportedly didn’t want Mexes to stay at the club, couldn’t help but smile.

“It also takes luck to score a goal like that. Beyond the goal, I am satisfied because we got a good result and it was confirmed that Milan are growing,” Mexes is quoted as saying on the Turin-based newspaper, Tuttosport, this morning (Sunday). “It’s also a positive sign that we got a clean sheet for the first time after three friendlies.

“Wearing this shirt is always an honour, a pride that is unmatched. I’m glad to have helped. We beat Inter in the first derby of the season and that’s something Prime Minister Berlusconi was very keen on.”

If he can always keep his cool in games, he can be considered to be a starter.

His goals are always classic, and he is not that bad as a defender… But his anger issue is something that needs to be addressed. I am glad he got his contract renewal

Great goal bij Mexes. He, Paletta and Ely should fight for a spot in the defense next to Romagnoli. But, what we need and became painfully obvious previous game is a really good number 10. We are Milan, we got a project and money why not spend some cash on one of the best number 10’s at the moment? Kevin de Bruijne! With him and Romagnoli we would be very strong, we’ve seen some good football from Bertolacci lately so he Bonaventura and de Jong should be our midfielder next season. With chances for Poli and Mauri. However, we need… Read more »

i’m really sad, and i have a serious complain towards the commentators of this blog. its regarding honda. no one, i mean no one gives him complement when he deserves it. he’s playing so good at no 10 position. its not his fault if the strikers can not score. however it seems like there is a pack waiting for him to fail.

a side note, honda is the man of the match of this match. forza honda!!! forza milan!!!

Honda can certainly play at the 10 position but he is the only one, we need another number 10. I prefer de Bruijne to come and Honda as back up. He will still play 15 matches per season, maybe even more if injuries show up. Still I think we should go for the best possible and the best possible is de Bruijne at the moment.

Mexes has his anger issues but he could be a very solid defender. What I always liked about him is the love and respect he shows for Milan jersey!!!

What this team needs is a match winner. Someone who can change a game in an instance. Someone who can deliver a killer pass when it matters most. Someone who can wield magic at a critical moment and guarantee victory. Unfortunately (or fortunately) Ibra is staying put at PSG. In a sense, it should fire up Bacca and Liuz Adriano that they are saddled with the responsibility of scoring goals. Niang and Cerci I think should be the bench, and both of them should be Coppa Italia, starting pair. I don’t know what Milan will do with Menez, but I… Read more »

I reckon menez stays. he’s different characteristics to bacca and adriano and that could be vital for tactical versatility. just because his sell will generate more money than other potential departures shouldn’t make him leave first. besides we dont need money! extra 100m is there to be spent. bacca adriano menez niang for 2 starting spots while matri and cerci leaves along with alex and the obvious ones.
