Mexes: “The least a player can do when he plays is give 100%, this jersey deserves to be honored”

Philippe Mexes says it doesn’t matter who plays as long as Milan make it to Europe after the Rossoneri (temporarily) returned to sixth Serie A place last night.

Coach Cristian Brocchi chose Mexes over Alex (not 100%) and Cristian Zapata for the match against Bologna and the Frenchman, who was rarely used by former boss Sinisa Mihajlovic, had a decent game and helped Milan get an important, albeit unconvincing, 1-0 win.

“The least a player in a team can do when he plays is give 100%,” Mexes told the Milan Channel. “The most important thing was to win, even if we didn’t give a sparkling performance. We now have to focus on the game with Roma and the final of the Coppa Italia. This is a testing time.

“We must do well and show the fans that we are determined because this jersey deserves to be honored with the right attitude and approach. Then, the results and confidence come as a consequence. I hope this win boosts morale. It doesn’t matter who plays as the main thing is to qualify for Europe. Coach Brocchi gives us confidence. He is putting his heart and soul into the job.

“But at the end of the day, it’s the players who take to the pitch and so we have to give everything we have. Niang (who could return to training soon)? He was enjoying an excellent season. I hope he can come back into the fold for these final matches. He was very important to the team.

“Juventus? Every match is important to me and whoever I face I give my very best for the team. I’m at the end of my contract and I’ll give my soul for this shirt.”

Why can’t mexes be our striker?

That would be total bitch slap to the face of milan’s “strikers”. And i use word “strikers” very loosely here

Calm and Happy Italian

Mexes will always have a special place in my heart. He’s probably not going to be renewed by the end of this season and that makes me a little sad.

He was an incredible captain when he wore the armband during Pippo’s last days. Organising the back line very nicely. And who can forget the lovely Mexsex wonder goals?

RESPECT TO MEXES WHO IS A TRUE ROSSONERI AND COULD BE ONE OF THE BEST CAPTAINS OF MILANS HISTORY!

He is a threat for the average bunch cause of his character, professionalism and leadership like De Jong and that’s why he’ll be pushed out of this A(verage) C(ircus) Milan! Forza Mexes!

If am a coach I would risk playing him in Monty’s position bcos he’s got an amazing technical skills even better than Matri. His leadership is no doubt huge and genuine and he’s far better than Zapata and a bit better than Alex in my opinion. This is the kinda dude that can develop a youngster like Romagnoli, never makes noise when he’s not playing and always fought with everything when he played.
Respect Mexes.

Comment:i like mexes he’s better than alex or zapata,sadly he’s never been given enough time. Forza mex.

Woh woh now. Mexes has a huge place in our hearts no doubt but don’t sh*t on alex’s name like that man. Obviously you haven’t seen what hes done for us so please

I-Milan

Everyone respects Mexes now, yet noone question Miha for not playing him. They keep talking about Miha as if he is something special. He is just an average coach and not better than Brocchi. Until Brocchi has the same amount of time Miha had to mould his team, you should stop shitting on the guy. Respect to Mexes, who deserves to be the captain over Montoshito. By the way, Seedorf was the first to hand the armband to Mexes during his tenure.

wes

I did….several times and got flak for it. Even suggested playing him in a defensive midfield role to allow him to roam and get into the attack more often. He had 3 decent attempts on goal…I think he has had 4 shots – all on target and 1 goal for the season (2 games) if only jack could hit the target more often he might have 10-15 goals.
