Suso: “Last year we would have lost this game, we didn’t play well but the most important thing is the 3 points”

Suso believes things would’ve been easier against Palermo if the Rossoneri doubled their lead in the first half but focuses on the big positive which is the three points.

The Spaniard joined Milan in January 2015 from Liverpool for €200k and after some time on the bench and a loan spell at Genoa, Suso, 22-year-old, has finally become a key player in the Diavolo squad.

Against Palermo this Sunday afternoon, Suso was probably the best player on the pitch, as he scored the first goal of the Rossoneri (15′) and ‘assisted’ Gianluca Lapadula’s 82′-minute winner and overall had a good performance while the rest of his teammates struggled for big parts of the game. At the end of the day, the 2-1 win was achieved.

“Lapadula’s goal? I wanted to shoot and Gianluca did well to score a nice goal,” Suso admitted to MilanTV. “The win? We didn’t play well but the most important thing is the three point. After scoring we had a little drop in the concentration and lowered the tempo.

“After the equalizer [which was scored by Ilija Nestorovski, 71′], however, we reacted and scored the second goal. Last year we would’ve lost this match, but this year we have more confidence and it shows on the pitch. Josip Posavec [the Palermo goalkeeper, who denied Suso several times during the game]? He made 2-3 very good saves, but the most important thing was to win.

“The national team [Suso was included in Julen Lopetegui Spain’s extended squad for this round of international football but didn’t make the final cut – Isco was chosen instead]? For me it’s a dream, playing for a big national side like Spain would be great and if they call me up then I’d be very happy.

“The derby [which takes place a day after his 23rd birthday]? It’s an important game for Milan, we have to prepare to like we to all the other games, but we know it always gives a lot of motivation.”

@Milan10 stop it. He considers himself a part of the team and always wanted to be there. He wishes the best for Milan but he was speaking the truth, they were sh*t last year. Some areas have gotten better but there are still some mental weakness problems that need to be worked out. Team is getting a little bit better each game. There’s some uncertainty about keeping starting positions within the squad with all the Chinese money and transfers coming in January so that doesn’t help morale. Or perhaps it’s making the players play harder to keep their spots. It’s… Read more »

Comment: Well done Milan. the January signings will make the team compact and difficult to beat. Bacca is still important despite his lack of goals this time. is this awful? certainly no! Higuain is unable to score likewise other big players.

Suso is a good player that needs to improve his shooting ability and also his final decision needs improvement after which he will be able to compete with some of world best player….but in real actual sense millann tried with a lot of patience on him and now milan is reaping it……Niang needs to grow up and play mature football…. Then for sure this team will be great again
