Rafael Leão scored the winning goal against Fiorentina and said ‘the important thing was the victory’ as Milan remain first.

It took Milan 82 minutes to get their first and only goal against Fiorentina today as following countless wasted chances, Rafael Leão took advantage of a fatal Pietro Terracciano error to score.

With 3 games until the end of the season, Milan are now first in the standings and they have a legitimate chance of winning the Scudetto come the end of the campaign.

“The goal? It’s the best moment for a player, the important thing was the victory,” Leão told DAZN after the game. “We have created a lot, there was a bit anxiety due to the wasted opportunities. It was a final, now we have to stay focused on our objective.

“The celebration? It was a heart for my family and for my team, and I’m very happy.”

“Our moment? We must all remain united, also the fans, to reach our objective.”

“How do we manage the pressure? We try to do what the coach says with a great desire to run for our teammates.”

“If now we’ll look at Inter? No, we only look at ourselves.”
