Alessandro Florenzi discussed how hard he worked to return to action, as he scored in the 3-1 over Verona.
Fatal Verona was not ready for this Milan, of Rafael Leão, Sandro Tonali and Alessandro Florenzi. Despite Davide Faraoni’s goal (38′), the Rossoneri conquered the Bentegodi with a brace of assists from the Portuguese to the midfielder (45+3′, 50′) and then another late goal from the ex-Roma man (87′).
This win put the Diavolo back in 1st place, with two games until the end of the year.
“This victory says a lot about this squad, but not everything, because the job is yet to be completed,” Florenzi, who in this match returned after recovering from a knee surgery undergone in April, told DAZN at the end of the match. “We must enjoy this evening, because we deserve that, but from tomorrow start studying Atalanta carefully, because they are a great team and having a strong season. On Sunday we’ll be ready for another final.”
On his goal: “I think those who work deserve something in return. Over the last month, I’ve been working morning, noon and night, sacrificing my time with those who love me, so I could get back for the end of the season.”
On the team’s character: “I said before the game, there are many guys here who look like they’ve been Serie A veterans, but it’s their first or second season. I came into a group that was already full of great talents and they had people capable of giving them that balance. This was the most difficult game because it was the next game; now the most difficult game is the next game. If I’ve seen many other groups with such unity like Milan? Not one this young, no.”
On the Scudetto: “We mustn’t think about the future, only the present. Let’s not imagine what happens if they draw, if we win, it’s not going to get us far. We have to focus on the moment we are in right now. It is the moment to push hard, play with intensity, aggression, and the way we did this evening. Keep focused on the next target, Atalanta.”
