ITALIAN IN THE SEMIFINALS – “No, no surprise, Italian football is healthy.”
MILAN DERBY – “Napoli are so far ahead in the league in comparison Milan, and people think it’s the same in the Champions League. But instead Milan in Europe change the chip. It’s a club like Bayern Munich that I just met and know well, they’ve been great in the past, I don’t know how many trophies they’ve won. I remember Arrigo Sacchi, Fabio Capello, Franco Baresi, Paolo Maldini, Costacurta… In short, they are history… And it counts. That’s why these teams are so strong.”
MILAN – “Milan from Napoli played well too, they won LaLiga, they won the first leg in Europe 1-0, then the 1-1 draw the other night with a penalty for Napoli that could have been missed. I repeat, it was a very close game».
BAVARIA-MANCHESTER CITY – “Yes, it was a very hard-fought game for us against Bayern, too. We won very narrowly, even though we ended 4-1 in the first and second leg. If Sané and Coman had scored in the first half when this stadium is pushing their team… I don’t think we’re superior to Bayern. I’m always impressed by them when we face them. But this time we defended well, we were tough. I was happier with the second half, it was more under our control. In any case, first of all, thanks to our fans, who followed us in large numbers, and congratulations to FC Bayern.”
HAALAND MISSED THE PENALTY – ‘But when necessary, he always is. A threat. Let’s talk about a boy… How old is he? 21-22? He has the future ahead of him. Yes, he will learn how to do it. He was an “incredible machine”, a goalscorer. Unbelievable. Likes to feel under pressure. However, he showed personality, he wanted to score and take the penalty but he will learn in the future. He will be more confident and confident after this mistake. Erling’s finish was really, really good. he is so young The players feel the experience we have in this competition very much, they really want to finish the Champions League well.”
