MILAN – Club President Silvio Berlusconi has arrived at the San Siro ahead of the rossoneri’s season opener versus Lazio.
MILAN – Fernando Torres has arrived at the San Siro to watch the match between Milan and Lazio.
MILAN – During the pre-match build up ahead of Milan-Lazio, Luca Alessandri spoke to the Milan Channel. Alessandri is the country manager for Italy for United Biscuits, the company that owns the brand McVitie's.
The biscuit brand has renewed its partnership with the rossoneri, passing from an Official Partner to a Premium Sponsor. These were Alessandri’s comments:
“Let’s hope it is a season full of satisfactions. In our third year, we decided to become a Premium Sponsor. We will try and make this partnership even stronger and let’s hope it is a season full of success in terms of both sporting and business results.
Torres is a player that I have liked for many years and, on paper, is even stronger than Balotelli. Torres had an up and down season in London, but in Milan, thanks to the environment that exists, he will surely do well.

MILAN – This is what assistant coach Mauro Tassotti had to say to the Milan Channel ahead of Milan-Lazio:
"We have asked them to play with heart and their heads, especially the first matches in the league, when everybody wants to give a lot, but then aren’t able to. Getting to the end won’t be easy.
It seems that Lazio have re-built wisely. They have good players in attack. Candreva, Klose and Keita are great players.
Menez was a possibility that has now become a certainty after Pazzini injured himself. We will have to take to the pitch in a different manner."
