Mateo Musacchio commented on Milan’s win over Hellas and also about the racist chants aimed towards Kessié and Gigio.
Milan were far from convincing but still picked up the win against Hellas last night. It was thanks to a 68′ minute from Krzysztof Piątek that the Diavolo got the breakthrough as they struggled greatly despite the fact that Mariusz Stępiński got a red card in the 21′ minute.
“We won and that was the most important thing,” Musacchio told MilanTV after the game. “It wasn’t easy. After the sending off, they played with all men behind the ball which made it tough to find any breaches. We’ve conceded just one goal in three games? Our defensive record is very important, but it’s not just thanks to the defense. It’s thanks to the hard work of the whole team.
“It looked like there was an offside before Calabria’s red card? I didn’t see the incident. I’ll have to look at it on TV. I didn’t see anything behind me. The Derby? We have a special week ahead of us. The entire squad wants to play in the derby. We know that Inter is a strong team but we are focused on winning the match, we know we’re capable of it and have to do it.”
Speaking in the mixed-zone, the Argentine center back said: “Winning before the derby? It’s a beautiful match, it was very important to arrive with these three points in hand. Piątek has finally scored? It’s very important, the attackers need the goals. Giampaolo and Gattuso? They are two different coaches, now we are working with Giampaolo, we know we need to improve a lot.
“The defense? It’s the job of the whole team, starting with the attackers first. The racist chants towards Kessié and Donnarumma? It’s unbelievable, it’s not clear why there are still people doing these things.”
