MILAN - Keisuke Honda took the time to speak to the Milan Channel in the wake of Milan's excellent display against Real Madrid earlier today, which saw the rossoneri play out a goalless draw and only lose out in the penalty shoot-out. Here are his thoughts:
"I am happy to be here, we have lots of supporters in China. We have played out some great matches at the International Champions Cup with Inter and Real Madrid, but we can still improve. The position in which I played in tonight is perfect for me, I played there for 10 years. I want to live up to the expectations of the fans for this season and I am sure that everything will go well. We must keep working hard, and of course, we know we have to change from last year. I don't think it is time to talk, but time to work hard. I want to please our fans; I promise the fans that I will do my best for them and for Milan."
MILAN - French forward Mbaye Niang has spoken to the Milan Channel after his positive display against Real Madrid earlier today. Here were his thoughts on how pre-season is going so far and how the rossoneri are progressing under new coach Sinisa Mihajlovic:
"Right from the start of pre-season we have all trained well and followed the coach. We're playing better compared to last season. Pre-season has been good for the whole squad. The coach has brought a desire to win. We're being put through our paces in training and you can see this out on the pitch. We deserve to have a great season. The goals will come."

MILAN – Sinisa Mihajlovic spoke to the press after Milan’s penalty shoot-out defeat to Real Madrid at the ICC in Shanghai. This is what the coach had to say:
"The chants from the fans really pleased me. After these two matches, we have reached our objective. We competed on level terms with Real Madrid and dominated the match for large spells. Let’s hope that we have increased the number of our fans here. If another tour is organised here in China, we will gladly come back. The two matches that we played here give us courage and confirm what we have been doing. We have always trained well and with the utmost commitment. We can never get our mental approach wrong. Our style of play in attack and defence has to be carried out as we have planned. We must always remain an organized team and one that plays to win. The performance was excellent. We can and we have to improve a lot more, by working hard and keeping our feet on the ground. I would like to say goodbye to all the Milan fans in China and there are many of them. You are a wonderful people and we will gladly come back next year."
